Lindsay Lohan gets one day in jail

August 23rd, 2007 // 109 Comments

Lindsay Lohan has struck a deal by pleading no contest to two counts of DUI and will serve 10 days community service and one day in jail (the minimum sentence of four days was cut in half by the judge, and she was also credited one day for the time served when she was arrested). Lindsay also pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of a controlled substance and pled no contest to reckless driving. The judge ordered Lindsay to serve 36 months probation and attend an alcohol education program for 18 months, as well as enroll in a drug program and “not to associate with people with controlled substances.” Lindsay issued the following statement:

“It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs.

Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case. No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself. I thank God I did not injure others. I easily could have.

I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so. I am taking these steps to improve my life. Luckily, I am not alone in my daily struggle and I know that people like me have succeeded. Maybe with time it will become easier. I hope so.”

She sounds pretty serious about getting healthy, but one day in jail? For seven misdemeanors, including driving with a blood alcohol level almost double the legal limit and trying to run somebody down in her car? I waved at a police officer the wrong way once and got a worse sentence.

    Justice. Riiiiiiiiight.

    Have a good look around during your one day, LL. You’ll be baaaaaaack.

  3. Retro

    Once you can fake sincerity you’ve got it made.

    LL is lying through her teeth, as she always does.

  4. veggi

    I’m glad she got off so light. She’s young and talented, not old and bitter like, say, people who hit the “Post Your Comment” button all day. Go Lindsay!!!

    All Robert Downey Jr. did was take a nap in a strangers’ bed and had to do a year. Doherty probably thinks the USA is like all those horror stories one hears about the Midnight Express

  6. Becca

    OMG!!! you know if she wasnt “famous” she would have gotten the coke charges & the DUI charges, which should have been a minimum of at least 6 months…. our legal system is seriously fucked up. if i was the judge, i wouldnt have cut her sentence in half, or credited her the time she was arrested. SHE WAS DRIVING DRUNK & HAD COCAINE ON HER!!!!!! yes, she has a problem, but that shouldnt be an excuse. the “normal” coke-whores who get picked up or other drunk drivers, or those who do both dont just get 1 day & 10 of community service. fucking idiots. & not to mention that this was her second offense, so that should have added another 6 months to a year to her 6 month sentence

  7. Lil Princess

    the only good thing about this is…. you know it pissed Paris off. hahahahaha

  8. Chauncey Gardner

    I hope somebody’s been patiently planning a riot on that day, and that Lindsey gets killed amidst the chaos.

  9. Ooba Gooba

    Well, I guess the skank was right when she said “I’m a celebrity and I can do whatever I want.”

    You know Dina is relieved, now she can go back to sponging off her daughter and “living the American Dream”.

    Skanks, both of them.

  10. What a pile of shit!!!! The dumb bitch is busted twice for dui and get one FUCKING day. I can’t wait to hear MADD’s reaction to this

  11. Lucy

    she obviously didn’t write that, her PR or whatever did

  12. Lovely

    LOL #7- At least we know we’ll only get a day for drunk driving while blitzed on blow… see ya later guys… my line’s waiting on me…woooohooooo

  13. kate


    she’s an actress.

  14. I want 9 inches of pain

    Man that reeks of damage control. That chick’s not articulate enough to pull off a speach like that on her own. I’m sick of her butt ugly face and bullshit lies. I’ve resisted reading anything about her since she got arrested, but was curious about the one day jail sentence. I thought it was a joke. Put this skank along with Paris and Nicole Ritchie into the next shuttle launch and send them off to the nearest galaxy with no return function. The world would be better off.

  15. DudeMuffin

    What does it matter anyway? She is BOX OFFICE POISON. Her last 5 movies have bombed. She is by no means a star.

  16. Just So You Know

    Rich and famous folks come here, read the latest round of outraged comments of the nobodies (“One day?!? That’s unbelievable! Where’s the justice? I would have been sentenced to one year!”)…and laugh…and laugh…and laugh…It’s fucking great to be rich.

  17. hailey

    no, i think the world would be better off without the rapists and terrorists.

  18. @12 no kidding. I may as well down a case and plow into the tree in my apartment buildings front yard every weekend. The punichment will apparently be less than the cab ride anyway.

  19. woodhorse

    That apology wasn’t adequite.

  20. Diana

    Seems like money is valued over justice and truth now..This world is going to hell in a hand basket..seriously.

  21. hope she gets raped while she’s in there that’ll set her straight

  22. Malffy Hernandes

    It’s all about the blonde hair

  23. And that’s such BULLSHIT!!! I got a dui when I was like 19 and they made me do 2 days in the orage vest with other real criminals on top of the night in jail, the fines and the 6 months alkie school, PLUS suspended my license for a fracking year. That was in CA too! GAWD she’s such a betch…

  24. from across the pond

    Twits, all of you. It’s simple – you don’t have enough jail cells. That’s because you decided to lock up so many of your black male citizens (10% overall, 20% for ages 20-30). I’m guessing you decided lynching would bring bad press? Too bad, then you would have had enough cells to house all the truly dangerous criminals and keep them off the streets, instead of being forced to give murderers and rapists early paroles. Anyway, it doesn’t leave much room for other offenders, especially young white girls. Which is a good thing, because then your old white judges can smile and get a tiny, remembrance-of-things-past hardon under their robes when they make the young white girls blushingly happy with a 1-day sentence. Smoochy-smoochy-smoochy!

    “Best system in the world” -ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

  25. across the pond is an idiot

    Your on the wrong page for your BS propaganda. Right, I’m sure there’s a conspiracy theory to lock up as many black men as possible. Nothing to do with the crimes they are committing. I can buy it’s a social issue or the problems are deeper rooted than color but the conspiracy theory? Please. Makes you sound like an ignorant stupid ass looking for excuses. Let me guess, the CIA drops drugs in the ghettos, right? Must be nice to always have a crutch for why your life sucks. Dumb fuck.

    I think the prison overcrowding is more the ‘drug war’ thing than a race thing. In 1970, about 16% of Federal incarcerations were drug-related. In 2002, it was 54.7%. If we legalized drugs, we’d empty half the cells in the federal pen.

  27. maxsolomon

    i hate it when americans feel they have to thank god for blind stupid luck.


  28. JagedNS

    Celebrity Justice rules. I definitely need to visit the library and borrow the book of laws that they are judged on tho…yeah that’ll be cool reading.

    who am I kidding..there won’t be words in it..just a bunch of pictures and stuff and bodies under cars and stick figures with big boobs on a cell phone behind the wheel.

  29. sane-o

    Well, I got WAY more than this for my DUI. Straightforward, .12, no drugs, no accident, no priors.

    So on one hand I’m pissed, but on the other, it must REALLY piss of Parasite Hilton.

    Speaking of grateful, we can all be grateful that krazihotkelli is dead. Or at least AWOL.

    PS maxsolomon u suck

  30. whatever

    Of course the sentence is not just. There’s no consistency in judges or sentencing. One of the worst problems with our court system. Depending on the judge, a child rapist might get off with probation while a man who does a “hit and run” on a dog, no substance abuse involved, just a mistake, and a DOG, can go to prison. (The former is often on the news, the latter happened to a guy I know of.) It’s utterly stupid and completely unfair regardless of fame.

    I don’t know if LL is sincere or lying. Probably lying? Time will tell. But if she’s sincere, I wish her the best, and I hope she can turn her life around. I love to make fun of these hollywood morons, but I won’t step on her if she’s really trying to improve.

  31. The One and Only REAL Goodman

    I hope I get raped soon, because I like it, especially when it’s a black man with 12 inches. If any of you are black, with 12 inches, and you want to rape a stupid little bitch like me, will you contact me?

    I’m the REAL Goodman, and I approve this mesage!

  32. Why is it that every time I look at her mouth, I get an uncontrollable urge to take a massive piss? Like a knocking-enamel-off-the-urinal, just-drank-a-case-of-Miller-High-Life velocity piss?

  33. joe

    Lee Baca will probably let her out after 15 minutes.

  34. LadyJane

    I bet her cooter smells like altoids and my dead angelfish that I buried in my flower garden today.

  35. LadyJane

    With a little bit of eau de dog feces, as well.

  36. shadty

    will someone just put her away forever

  37. the litte bitch get fuck in jail ha ha,

  38. haha, wtf… only one day? well that’s meaningful

  39. dsfdsfds

    dont worry guys….36 months probation, lol. she’ll total her car drunk at least 4 more times in that time period

  40. dsfdsfds

    dont worry guys….36 months probation, lol. she’ll total her car drunk at least 4 more times in that time period

  41. lambman

    Can anybody explain why charges were never filed for her first DUI until now? She got arrested, went through rehab, got out, got another DUI went back to rehab and still no charges filed until now?

    Well here’s the thing, Paris didnt do any time until she violated probation…Linday just started probation today….so if she screws up again in the next 3 years she will do time.

  42. MiCheDa

    she’ll be back…what a tool

  43. Lindsay Lohan picsssssssss…

  44. Hahahah…now Nicole Richie checks herself into jail to serve her time….

    …and gets out in about 30 minutes. Ahh, Los Angeles, Land of Justice. Don’t break the law here boys and girls or else there is 20 minutes of hard time in store for you.

  45. HankTheDwarf

    Yes but what is the judge going to do about the HERPES COVERING HER FACE AND SHOULDERS.

  46. Lovely

    “No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself.”

    So were they her fucking jeans or not- I’m so confused

  47. #45, nahhhhhh…..only if yer famous!!!
    Get a parking ticket there and they send you to prison if yer a nobody.

  48. The only reason she got off light is that I gave her my get out of jail free card from my Celebrity Monopoly game. She owes me big time!!!!!

  49. RichPort

    ONE FUCKING DAY IN JAIL?!? Seriously, that’s not nearly enough time to adequately sample the local talent ( or be sampled, in my case ). I mean, why bother getting all sexed up by the mens when you will probably be released after 20 minutes anyway?
