Lindsay Lohan pleads guilty! Sentenced to one day!
FROM TMZ.COM

Lindsay: "I Am Addicted to Alcohol and Drugs"
Posted Aug 23rd 2007 5:47PM by TMZ Staff
Filed under: Celebrity Justice, Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan issued the following statement to TMZ:

"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."


Lindsay Lohan's lawyer pulled off one of the biggest legal feats in recent memory.

Lohan faced years in prison if convicted and charged with a felony. But mega-lawyer Blair Berk was able to negotiate with the D.A. and literally turn Lindsay's jail sentence into a revolving door. Lindsay could theoretically walk into jail at 11:30 one night and leave first thing in the morning.

It's not that the deal is that unusual, but getting it to stick, given the high profile of the case and the political pressure, makes it all remarkable.

Lindsay Lohan will not stand trial for DUI.

She just struck a deal by pleading no contest to two counts of DUI (driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher). By law, Lohan becomes a second offender (with two DUIs) and must serve a minimum of four days in jail. But the judge cut that in half by ordering her to perform 10 days of community service in lieu of two of the days. He also gave Lindsay one day credit for time served when she was busted. That means she gets a grand total of one day in jail.

Lohan also pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of a controlled substance (two separate incidents) -- both misdemeanors. She also pleaded no contest to reckless driving.

The judge said Lohan will serve 36 months probation and attend an alcohol education program for 18 months.

As to the controlled substance plea, Lohan was ordered not to use controlled substances. She's also required to enroll in a drug program. She's also required to stay for an unspecified amount of time at the Utah facility where she's currently in rehab.

Lohan was also ordered "not to associate with people with controlled substances."

On January 18, Lohan must show she's successfully completed rehab.

PLEASE tell us you're kidding.


Anyone else would be looking at a year in jail minimum.

TWO DUI's, reckless driving, "chasing" someone at 100 MPH, possession of cocaine, etc.

Although it's a celebrity thing not a racial thing, expect Al Sharpton to protest that blacks have received much longer sentences for MUCH fewer crimes.

I hope her one day in prison is in the local County Lesbian Massive Rape Jail.

Cunt.

Well if anyone is interested in her getting better... this seems like a better deal...

I doubt jail would teach her much when the problem is being addicted to drugs and alcohol

Personally, I think a lot of this is because of her lazy ass parents who just wanted to cash in their daughter

She's barely old enough to buy alcohol and is an alcoholic at age 21...??


With all the revenue shortfalls, she should be fined millions after getting off this easy.

Lindsay can afford a good lawyer, and giving the judge puppy-dog eyes doesn't hurt either. But if an average Johnny LunchPail or Jane Six-Pack tried to do the same thing the judge would throw extra years on for annoying him.

California justice strikes again.

Can't you vote on judges and DA's in California? Is this the justice system you want? One that caters to the rich and famous? Others will get pounded down like Rodney King.
