Lindsay Lohan to Spend Nine Days Behind Bars

Lindsay Lohan might spend just 9 days in jail

After originally punished for a 90-day sentence and was eventually reduced to an estimated 23 days, it looks like that actress Linsay Lohan will be out of the jail earlier than expected.

This after the Los Angeles Country Sheriff’s department said that there’s a possibility that the actress, who began serving his sentence on Tuesday, will be released after nine days due to overcrowding and Lohan’s cooperative demeanor.

"The sentence keeps shrinking. The new estimate is she will be released after nine days if she behaves herself. “A jail source said regarding Lohan’s sentence.

”The latest sheriff's documents are saying 14 days but she can knock a few more off that. I expect her to be out shortly after next weekend."

Lohan was sentenced after violating the probation rules she received in 2007, which stated that the Hollywood star should attend alcohol education classes. She was on probation after committing consecutive alcohol and drug-related incidents.

On the other hand, the actress was prevented from smoking cigarettes while in jail, but she was allowed to take her prescription medicines like Adderall for her Attention Deficit Disorder, and Ambien, which is a sleeping pill. This ruling was criticized by Lohan’s father, who believes that those medicines were the reason why his daughter got into a lot of troubles.

"She's got to get off prescription drugs. I don't think jail is going to change her; I think she needs to change herself." Michael Lohan said in an interview with Larry King of CNN.

Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley also released a statement saying that the actress is having a difficult time adjusting with the environment she’s currently on.

"Understandably, Lindsay's having a difficult time adjusting, as it would be for anyone. She's trying to make the necessary adjustments to an extremely stressful and difficult situation. There were some tears." Holley said.

    Its a real shame when once again, someone in hollywood will in the end not be punished for there crimes. I dont think spending 9 days in jail will change her, her habits or out look on crime and punishment. There has to come a time when no matter who the person is, they must be punished. They are human beings like anyone else, they provide nothing more then anyone else in there field. Its a shame that when people reach this much success in life with fame and money, still go down the same road of self destruction. Ive reach the point where im not that much of a fan of anyone famouse anymore because the result of drugs and early death seems to loom over them. I would think that people would learn that doing drugs and drinking 24/7 simply because they can afford it will only result in death.

    I think she should have to serve her full 90 day sentance and have that exsperiance of what its really like to have nothing more then your 4 walls. I think that exsperiance could change her look enough to say to herself, i dont want to be a statistic in hollywood life. Im not a huge fan of her personally or her acting but it doesnt mean she cant grow as an actor either. If she continues down this road she will quickly hit that paverbial brick wall and no longer be bankable what so ever. We have all seen many actors go down that road and they think they will be rich forever but in that lifestyle many have fallen. Weve seen actors go broke completely and loose all fame and forced back into the blue collor life. So linsey, learn from the actors before you and walk a new road of success and not be that next one buried because the drugs,parties and lifestyle were more inmportant then your career.

    Just my 2 cents
