Lindsay Lohan Starts Reduced Jail Sentence
Actress Lindsay Lohan who was sentenced to 90 days jail for violating her probation, has entered the penal system today.
Lohan who was visibly shaken during her trial and upon discovering she was actually being sentenced to jail, handed herself in to authorities to start her sentence. Good news greeted the stricken young actress in the form of a reduced jail sentence.
What has been described as a major reduction of time served, it has been disclosed that Lohan may only serve around 14 days now. This shortened term was accredited to her not being a violent offender and also to prison overcrowding.
It seems that the well known movie star will be released around the beginning of August as stated by a spokesman in the Sheriff’s Department.
Lohan who has been lawyer jumping in recent times changed her attorney to Robert Shapiro straight after the well publicized sentencing. Shapiro who made a name for himself defending O.J. Simpson was pushing for his new client to serve her time in rehab rather than jail.
But when the young starlet handed herself in, she was once again accompanied by Shawn Chapman Holley, her original trial lawyer. If this manoeuvre with lawyers achieved the desired consequences is only known to the parties involved.
One fact that is known for sure is that Lindsay Lohan will now no longer have to serve out a long 90 day jail sentence but a very short 14 days, which can only be great news for Lohan and her family.
