BREAKING: Lindsay Lohan Sentenced to 30 Days in Jail
Lindsay Lohan had her hearing today, and guess what? She’s going back to jail– for 30 days.
Between the Kardashians and the Lohans, I know we’re probably all scandal’d out by now; but hey, guess what? Lindsay Lohan is going back to jail! And guess what else? It ain’t for the two weeks she was hoping for!
Yep: LiLo had her hearing today, and she has been weighed, she has been measured, and she has been found wanting. According to People, she did own up to the judge to missing too many community service appointments—I believe her exact words were “Yes, your honor”—and she’ll now be returning to the Lynwood Jail for the fifth time—this time for 30 days.
She’s due to arrive at the women’s jail by November 9—just one week from now. I would tell you to enjoy your last week of freedom, Lindsay, but since we both know how that would likely end, I won’t. Instead, I’ll tell you to watch yourself.
Lindsay’s sentence isn’t up once she gets out of jail, either. People reported that she’ll have an additional 53 hours of community service to complete at the morgue (how cheerful!), as well as 18 more psychotherapy sessions to get under her belt. All of it, by the way, must be done by the end of next March, and if there are any violations, Lindsay could be facing 270 more days in the clink.
However, as usual, things might be a little easier for LiLo than at first they seem: According to TMZ, she’ll likely only serve 20 percent of her 30-day sentence—that is, 6 days. Is this a good thing? Probably not; it’s possible that she’ll take that leniency for granted and fall right back into her old ways. I’m hoping, though, that the threat of everything else hanging over her head might finally scare her straight.
Tell us: What do you think? Was Lindsay’s sentence too harsh? Too easy? Just right? Do you even care? We want to know!
