Lindsay Lohan Makes a mockery of the Criminal Justice System: Checks in and out of LA County jail

7 Nov

Lindsay Lohan was released from a Los Angeles County jail early Monday, less than five hours after she arrived at the suburban women’s facility to serve a 30-day sentence for violating probation.

Lohan was booked into the Century Regional Detention facility in Lynwood at 8:50 p.m. Sunday, in what was expected to be a short stay because of jail overcrowding. This allows her to make a mockery of America’s criminal justice system… having things her way and them serving little to no jial time!

Deputy Tony Moore said Lohan was released early Monday, but didn’t have an exact time. News crews staking out the jail said she left at 1:40 a.m. in a black Cadillac Escalade sport utility vehicle, and that she was in her Venice home by 2 a.m.

Lohan had until Nov. 9 to report to the jail.

It’s Lohan’s fifth jail sentence since being arrested twice for drunken driving in 2007.

On Wednesday, a judge ordered jail time because Lohan recently violated court orders by getting booted from a community service assignment at a women’s shelter.

The judge imposed a complicated sentence, telling Lohan that she will now have to perform all of her community service at the county morgue or risk serving an additional 270 days in jail.

The sentence also requires Lohan to undergo psychotherapy sessions and appear monthly at court hearings between December and March.

The judge also said Lohan can no longer leave the country and needs the permission of her new “no-nonsense” probation officer to travel outside California.

Jail overcrowding has led to significantly shortened jail terms.

In 2007, Lohan spent 84 minutes at the jail before being released, and in the past she has served about 20 percent of her sentence, which is roughly six days.

Lohan will have to serve 423 hours at the county morgue, where for nearly two weeks she has been mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms and washing dirty sheets.

Lindsay Lohan Sent Back to Jail

2 Nov

Here we go again….

A judge sentenced actress Lindsay Lohan on Wednesday to 30 days in jail and warned the actress there would be plenty more time behind bars if she violated further court orders.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, California Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner imposed the complicated new sentence, telling Lohan she would have to serve more than 400 hours of community service at the county morgue, undergo counseling sessions and report to court frequently to avoid further jail time.

In all, Sautner sentenced Lohan to 300 days in jail for violating a court order, but said the actress would only serve the additional 270 days if there was another violation.

The actress has until Nov. 9 to report for her jail term, and Sautner ruled she cannot serve house arrest, as she did previously this year.

Lindsay Lohan Ready to Plea Bargain

2 May

The Associated Press is reporting that Lindsay Lohan wants to enter a no contest plea to end a criminal case filed over a $2,500 necklace reported stolen. The  information  was received from a source close to the actress on  Saturday. 

The source close to Lohan says the actress wants to end a misdemeanor theft case filed after a jewelry store reported the actress took a necklace without permission. The source, who is familiar with Lohan’s criminal case but was not authorized to comment publicly, said the actress wants to put the case behind her so she can focus on her career.

A court date has not yer been set for Lohan to enter the plea. but she’s scheduled to return to a Los Angeles court for a pretrial hearing on May 11. But that may be to long to wait–the source said the actress is hoping to resolve the case before then.

By pleading no contest, Lohan would not be admitting guilt, and it was not immediately clear if she would face any additional penalties.

The actress already has been sentenced to four months in jail for a probation violation related to the theft case.

Currently, she is free on bail.

Prosecutors in February charged Lohan with felony grand theft on allegations that she took the necklace from Kamofie & Co., a jewelry store near the actress’s home in Los Angeles’ Venice neighborhood.

The charge was reduced last week by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner. Authorities allege the theft occurred roughly three weeks after Lohan, 24, was released from court-ordered rehab at the Betty Ford Center.

Lohan’s assistant turned the necklace in to authorities after police obtained a search warrant to retrieve it from Lohan’s house, but before detectives were able to conduct the search. Sautner said during an April 22 hearing that she thought Lohan’s actions were brazen, but that she did not think the case warranted a felony prosecution because many other cases involving more serious allegations are reduced to misdemeanors.

Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers said she thought the ruling was an “abuse of discretion” and her office may appeal it, but no challenge has yet been filed.

A little over a week ago, Sautner sentenced Lohan to 120 days in jail and nearly 500 hours of community service for violating the terms of her probation by taking the necklace.

Lohan was on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case. She was released to pursue an appeal but has not yet filed a formal motion to try to get the sentence reduced. In all likelihood, Lohan would serve a small fraction of her four-month sentence — possibly as little as three weeks — due to jail overcrowding.

The source said Lohan’s intention to plead no contest was aimed at making good on her statement to Jay Leno earlier this week that she wanted to take responsibility for her actions.

The plea was first reported Saturday by celebrity website TMZ.

The actress’s career has been mostly stalled for the past year as she struggled to deal with the terms of her sentence in the drunken driving case.

She recently accepted a two-picture deal to appear in a pair of mob films, including a biopic of the infamous Gotti family. She will portray the wife of John Gotti Jr. in the film “Gotti: Three Generations” that also stars John Travolta and Joe Pesci.

In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Lohan said she hopes the role will help her return to being known more as an actress than a tabloid mainstay. “I’m really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do,” Lohan said about her new roles.

Lindsay Lohan Is Sentenced to 120 Days in Jail

23 Apr

A California judge has had enough of the Lohan–sentencing her to 4 months in the slammer.

Judge Stephanie Sautner just threw the book at Lindsay Lohan for her probation violation, sentencing her to 120 days in county jail after she was arrested for stealing a necklace.

After sentecning, Lindsay Lohan was remanded into custody and taken to the basement of the courthouse for booking. Lindsay’s lawyer has said she’ll appeal, which means Lindsay is entitled to post bail.

Lohan was also ordered to complete 480 hours of community service — 360 of those hours must be performed at the Downtown Women’s Center. The remaining 120 hours will be served at the Los Angeles County morgue.

Judge Sautner explained that Lindsay should have called the store and notified the owners about the necklace sooner. She waited several weeks and returned the necklace after finding out the cops were about to raid her house.

Sautner seemed influenced by the surveillance video, which she saw for the first time in court today. Sautner agreed with Danette Meyers, who argued Lindsay used her friend Patrick as a decoy to distract the clerk.
