We're not fooling ya. This is coming from a legitimate source in the Sheriff's Department - and it sounds like she shouldn't even bother going back to jail at all.
Last week, Lindsay Lohan was arrested at her court hearing, thrown in jail and then released again all within a matter of hours. She's working on an appeal right now to keep herself out of the clink for the rest of her 120 days sentence, but according to spokesperson for the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, that might not be necessary.
Steve Whitmore has revealed that though LiLo has been found to be in violation for her probation, due to overcrowding, it is likely she will only serve a few "hours" of her prison sentence, rather than days. Steve explains:
"Instead of doing 120 days, or the reduced 20% sentence, Lindsay could serve only several hours, and then be released. If Lindsay were to surrender on a weekend, when the jails are the busiest, this would be Lindsay's best shot of getting out in no time."
You gotta love the system!
Steve points out that it's not just the issue of overcrowding that works in Lindsay's favor - it's her own behavior while being locked up. He adds:
"Sentences are significantly reduced for inmates if they obey all rules while they are in custody. Ms. Lohan has always been a very good inmate while she is in custody. She is always extremely cooperative and we have had no problems with her."
But of course! She was raised right! She knows how to respect and obey the rules…once she's been punished for breaking them in the first place.
Maybe it's worth looking into this plan of attack, LiLo. The less time you spend in court and jail, the more time you can spend making movies.
And let's face it - that ratio's been a little bit off for the last five years!
