Well, it finally happened. Lindsay Lohan is following in the missteps of Paris and Nicole with a 90-day jail sentence.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Marsha N. Revel gave Lohan three 30-day sentences, as well as a sentence of 90 days in a locked-down drug rehabilitation center. The decision came after a dramatic hearing, during which Lohan tearily insisted she would behave better and made excuses for missing weekly alcohol education classes.
Revel cited Lohan’s failure to follow the terms of her probation, which among other things includes missing a court appearance to party at the Cannes International Film Festival.
During the hearing, Lohan asked to address Revel directly.
“As far as I knew I was in compliance with my programs,” she said. “I wasn’t trying to get special treatment. I have to provide for myself. I have to work. Having said that, I did everything to balance my jobs and showing up. I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life. It’s my career â€¦ I take responsibility for my actions. I’ve tried to do the best I can. It’s been such a long haul â€¦ I don’t want you to think that I don’t respect you.”
She’ll be left mostly alone in a private cell away from the general population, which is presumably for her safety. Don’t be surprised if she’s out in a few days, though. Prison overcrowding led to Nicole Richie’s release from jail after just 82 minutes, and Paris Hilton only served 23 days of her 45-day sentence. Hopefully she’ll continue down their path and finally get it together.
