Lindsay Lohan Costing California Taxpayers Millions

Seen here crashing, then being entirely ignored at Leonardo DiCaprio‘s premiere party for J. Edgar, Lindsay Lohan served her 30-day jail sentence in four hours last night – No, really. And she has the balls to call it “scary.” – which apparently combined with all her legal shenanigans is costing the state of California a shit-ton of money. Fox News reports:

Given her years-long saga in the California court system that led to her hours-long incarceration, Lohan could have cost taxpayers over $250,000 per hour of the jail time she just served, experts say.
… “From logistics to the transcript reporters to the clerks, it is exorbitantly expensive to have a court appearance. It is important we understand what a waste of time this is,” former federal prosecutor Michael Wildes of Wildes & Weinberg told Fox411.com. “It costs tens of thousands of dollars per court appearance for all the clerks, the security, and those court reporters who get paid by the page, not to mention all the collateral support for something like this. Plus it diverts the administration of justice for other matters.”
“It has likely cost taxpayers millions of dollars,” attorney Vikki Ziegler contends. “This has been a four year ordeal that taxpayers in California must foot. That includes salaries for judges, prosecutors, court officers, court reporters, clerks, [and] other law enforcement professionals, who must all be paid, to have touched the Lohan case directly or indirectly in one shape or another.”

So hanging, right? They’re advocating hanging? Because how much is rope? I find that shit lying around all the time. You never hear cowboys going, “I dunno ’bout this hangin’, Buford. I reckon we’ll need to raise the sales tax.” That would be a fucking terrible movie.

    My main problem with Lindsay is that she doesn’t have a 30 minute rate. I just don’t want the whole hour and want to save a little bit of money during these tough economic times.

      You might want to consider calling up a few friends for a time-share presentation.
      I recommend power point

    • Newsflash to Pimp: turning off the lights doesn’t make the homeless smell go away. Nor does it decrease the likelihood of felching her of the guy who came before you. No pun intended.

      • i’m talking about eating her asshole. i’m pretty sure i’m over the threshold of fear of someone’s dick having been in there. just sayin…

    • Chris

      THIS IS TO ALL YOU CRAZY ASSHOLES WHO POST SUCH DISGUSTING STUFF ABOUT ANOTHER HUMAN BEING YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT.tHE AMOUNT OF HATE AND VILE YOU ALL POST IS A DISGRACE TO OUR COUNTRY AND SHOULD REALLY NOT ONLY TAKE A GOOD HARD LOOK IN THE MIRROR BEFORE JUDGING SOMEONE ELSE, BUT SPEND YOUR ENERGY HELPING SOMEONE IN NEED, OR AT THE VERY LEAST,TRYING TO SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO ENCOURAGE YOUR LOCAL STATE OFFICIALS TO INCREASE JOB’S,HOUSING FOR THE HOMELESS??
      iNSTEAD YOU GET ON HERE AND TALK ABOUT A GIRL WHO’S GOING THROUGH A ROUGH TIME(SELF IMPOSED OR NOT) AND SAY THE MOST DISGUSTING AND HORRIBLE THING’S, i WONDER WHAT YOU ALL WOULD THINK IF IT WAS YOUR DAUGHTER,SISTER OR MOTHER BEING TALKED ABOUT SO BADLY.?? tHIS IS PRECISELY WHY AMERICANS HAVE SUCH A BAD REPUTATION FOR BEING SO VULGAR AND RUDE TO OTHER COUNTRIES, YOU ALL DO US SO PROUD….

    Lindsay is a bombshell here, with her stunningly long blond hair, snow white complexion with apple red pouty lips and matching nail polish, it’s a wonder she even gets jail sentences looking this good. And for those in California, of course it costs a lot of money — Miss. Lohan has expensive taste — so if you can’t pay the bill, stop asking Lindsay for her time.

    • Pik van Cleeff

      Don’t worry about Randal… he’s all ears.

    • I’ve always thought of you, Randal, as a soft-spoken, basically kind fellow who endeavors to say complimentary things about the various subjects of this blog. But your current post has changed my mind considerably.

      Now I think of you as a total nutbar, a smart-assed dimwit, who wouldn’t know shit from a good grade of butter. Nobody is asking Lindsay for her time. She has earned — tenfold — a spot in the State of California Graybar Hotel System due to her own stupidity and irresponsibility.

      So, Randal, let me raise a glass to you and simply toast: Go fuck yourself!

    • I Complain A Lot

      When I think of Randel, I think of a guy that has a doll collection and eveyday he tells each one of the dolls how pretty it is. Then he goes in the closet, put on his homemade human flesh suit to post on the superficial. “It puts the lotion in the bucket!”

    so, did she go ‘spread eagle’ in the playboy shoot…or what?!

  4. Roughing my way to the top

    Is this about her Playboy spread? NO? im not reading.

    Just fucking die already. I’m getting impatient.

  6. My, what a purdy mouth.

    California taxpayers are costing themselves millions. They are the ones that vote in soft on crime people.

    Banish her to Canada. It might start to make up for Justin Beiber.

    They’re spending millions because they won’t spend billions. It’s not complicated – having more available prison cells means spending more on running prisons and building new ones. Tax increases are required for that. If you refuse to pay, don’t whine about the limitations of your under-budgeted prison system.

  13. MInky Wail

    I’m guessing this is petty much what she’ll look like in Playboy. She probably hasn’t bathed since the photo shoot.

  14. InternetRocketScientist

    If only her community service was blowing people for drugs, then this whole problem would have been solved months ago.

  15. hmna

    She looks about 10 times hotter than normal here. WTF?

  16. Archies_Leach

    Emma Stone is the present lindsay whorelan and she’s on the way to having a long career cause she doesn’t have an unrelenting unrepentent pimp named dina making her stand at the corner of 4th and Main.

    I’m sure he didnt figure in a Photoshop license and some graphic artists in that estimate.

    California is a joke. In any other state this broad would have done the full 18 months. When are they going to stop fooling around and lock her up. She has learned nothing.

    • mpath1

      overcrowding is a problem when dealing with normal convicts. a celeb like that takes even more time, energy, & resources since she’s clearly not gonna be placed in general population. and she has to be looked after at all times.

      it makes for a nice joke in theory to treat her like everyone else, but we all know she’d probably get seriously injured or killed by another inmate and the state would end up paying a million in damages.

      sure she’s a rich, spoiled brat but the bottom line is that her crimes are not serious enough to warrant that much effort.

  19. KumaTenshi

    So, they’re bitching about the fact she’s cost taxpayers millions now. Here’s a fucking idea….

    THROW HER IN JAIL FOR GOOD!

    Dumb shits. You’re the ones who keep fucking letting her out and getting away with every damn thing she wants to do. Had you grown a pair, and slammed the bitch with maximum jail time and maximum punishments, you wouldn’t have stupidly cost people millions of dollars!!

    But hey! Since it was your stupidity, clearly, YOU should be the ones to whine and bitch about how much money you wasted on her.

    • don't get it

      throw her in jail for good….for what exactly?

      what has she done besides smoking drugs (none of our business) and violating her probation. BIG DEAL!! maybe if everyone stopped MAKING EVERYTHING SHE DOES OUR BUSINESS, we would be a lot happier. I’m hoping she will pull a “robert downey jr.” and get back to being a normal person!

  20. Poison Ivy League

    It’s time for California to be spilt in half. Let So Cal deal with their land of crybaby, over-priveledged, asshole actors and let us Nor Cal folk be free of their fuckery of problems.

  21. Angie

    Apparently people want a rapist to be paroled to free up a cell so that LL can spend time in jail. You know, to get the priorities straight in the legal system.

  22. Charles

    So if Lindsay wasn’t tying up the system, none of these various court employees would be working…? Or do they draw higher salaries for celebs? This whine makes no sense…

    • blueberry

      oops I just made the same point under yours, but I agree, this makes no sense.

    • I was just going to make the same point. So the court was only open for Lohan’s case that day? I can’t imagine her case lasting more than 30minutes to an hour. Its not like it was a trial every time she came into court. And the point is….ignorant gullible people actually believe she cost Cal tax payers millions….

  23. blueberry

    I don’t get how Lindsay factors into the salaries of all these court people? Wouldn’t they be doing the same job regardless if it wasn’t Lohan sitting in front of them?

  24. Mike

    So the solution is not to stop overprosecuting non dangerous low level offenders and chasing them around for years with stupid requirements? Are the millions going to come back if we blame the evil ones for the waste? Pigs are dumb.

  25. Ha Ha

    I don’t know why this surprises me; it’s all about her & she couldn’t give a shit about anyone else, so why not waste everyone else’s money. Good thing I don’t live in LA, because I’d find a way to sue her for the entire cost of her bullshit waste of taxpayers funds.

  26. Mandy

    Say what you want about her, but I think she looks GREAT in these photos! The makeup and curly hair really suit her.

  27. Pippy Longcockings

    All you Californians are fucking assholes anyway. You deserve Lindsay Lohan.

  28. Frank Burns

    The scariest part of jail, said Lohan, “was something they called ‘dental hygiene’. They had these tiny brushes with long handles, and they wanted me to put some paste stuff on it, then move it up and down on my teeth! Yeah, right! And I won’t even tell you what they wanted me to do with these pieces of string they called ‘floss’.”

  31. Lindsay-Hater

    I’m so glad it’s the California taxpayers footing this crap. It’s what you get when you have dumb-ass judges that give her useless sentences for the shit she pulls and then when she finally does go to jail they divide then time by 200 or some fucking number so she does 4 hours. Get your collective asses out of the shit and ignore the stupid bitch, let her kill herself and be done with it or REALLY lock her up for 60 days in the general community. In the mean time don’t cry about the shit you breed out there in LA LA land, you deserve all you get! Morons!

  32. MaxJac

    Anyone who looks at this and thinks this specific instance is wrong is blind. It comes down to the whole system. When someone is punished, everyone else pays. This is why the government can not be allowed to deal out punishment and is at its foundation immoral. Restitution in a free society is the way to go.

  33. Archies_Leach

    When she pulls a Dana Plato and is found dead in the gutter penniless are the taxpayers on the hook to provide a wooden casket and a burial?

  34. Anon

    Normally I’m good with the whole village wanting to burn this witch at the stake but LL is NOT costing California millions. I mean they are listing judges, clerks, sheriffs, etc as costs to her case.

    Her case isn’t paying their yearly salary. There hundreds of cases these people touch that pay their salary and costs. You can piss and moan that you have to pay a judge $500K a year to run this trial for a 30 minute jail stint but this isn’t the only trial he is handling all year.

    This woman has so many different looks, most are beautiful some are gorgeous- but this is the one I’d love most to sink my torpedo deep into….

  36. Juano

    Folks,

    They aren’t convening the entire judicial system of California for Lohan. The judge, the bailiffs, the prosecutors, the clerks all have to be there regardless, as I’m sure they have a full case load. So, when posters claim she is costing the tax payer millions, it is clear they don’t get it.

    She’s just one more citizen caught up in the mauw of justice. If anybody is out of pocket for it, it’s her; she has to pay her lawyer. Now, if she had to have a public defender, then they’d have reason to bitch about it, but of course, most of you would gloat over the fact that she was so out of cash that she had to ask for a public defender.

  37. Phil McCracken

    FTA: “Plus it diverts the administration of justice for other matters.” Really? I didn’t think Lotusland *had* such a thing as “Justice.” I know they have the LAPD and “judges” who basically punish you on whether you are famous or not.
    When people get treated more or less equally under the Law, then you might be able to throw out the term, “Justice.” Until then, it’s one gigantic kangaroo court.

  38. Cracker

    Before she fucked up her whole life, how many millions of $$ in taxes did she pay?

  39. That’s a fairly good looking fifty year-old woman.
