She's In,

She's Out!!!

8/23/2007 8:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0823_richie_bn_3Just 82 minutes after Nicole Richie checked herself into Lynwood jail, she left a free woman. Hard time her ass!

According to the official website of the L.A. Sheriff's Dept., Richie checked in at 3:15 PM and was released at 4:37 PM. She was assigned to a cell for only 35 minutes! It takes longer to watch an episode of "The Simple Life" ... and it's more painful!

A Sheriff's source tells TMZ Nicole was routinely processed and released according to normal operating rules.

One of the more brilliant moves by Nicole's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, who snuck Nicole in and out while everyone was focused on Lindsay. Well played!

WHAT THE???!!! What sort of justice system has the USA got? What does this tell young people? Obviously it wouldn't happen to you or me, we'd have to serve the COMPLETE sentence. What a farce!!!!!

Happy for her! She rocks. At least she was honest about the whole thing and didn't act like a spoiled baby like Paris did.

Of course she's out....she "serviced" the judges, and now she's free to go.

Her baby is going to need valtrex just to live in her house.
