L.A. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said Lindsay Lohan will be released earlier than 23 days into her 90 jail sentence:
"She is scheduled to be released on either August 1 or 2 for overcrowding issues and good behavior."
It’s the long-standing policy of the L.A. County jail system to release nonviolent misdemeanor offenders early due to severe overcrowding, except Lindsay committed a felony, so the question is whether she is getting treated like everyone else, or like a celebrity?
The Los Angeles legal system has just guaranteed that Lindsay will be in the same desperate need for help when she gets out of jail and rehab as she was when she went in, except for her trouble she will make a minimum of $500,000. That’s nothing to cry about. In fact, she’ll probably write a book on the experience, and it will be a best seller.
Kiefer Sutherland served 48 days in jail, and although he’s a celebrity he is also male, and in a sexist legal system men serve longer sentences, and are punished more severely, because they are men, and they are expected to take responsibility for their actions, which is not expected of women these days.
