Lindsay Lohan Goes to Jail

July 20, 2010

Lindsay Lohan is in jail. The troubled actress showed up to court today where she was handcuffed and led away to begin her 90-day sentence.

Lindsay Lohan’s court appearance this morning was drama- and tears-free, though the actress did arrive a little late. The 24-year-old kept her composure as she turned herself in. Judge Marsha Revel addressed the court, saying, "Unless there's anything else, I'm going forward with remanding at this time.” Lohan was then handcuffed and escorted to a waiting unmarked silver police car.

About an hour after appearing in court the actress was then driven from the Beverly Hills courthouse to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California. Once Lohan arrives at the jail she will be forced to wear a prison-issued orange jumpsuit. Lohan will serve her sentence away from the general prison population. According to Steve Whitmore, a spokesperson for the L.A. Sheriff’s Department, Lohan has been “extremely cooperative.”

Lindsay is unlikely to serve her entire 90-day sentence. According to experts she is likely to serve two weeks to a month due to the Sheriff’s Department's “long-standing policy of releasing nonviolent offenders early due to overcrowding.” Once she is released from jail she will have to enter rehab.
