Kiefer Learns to Fluff & Fold!

12/7/2007 2:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After a little more than 24 hours, Kiefer Sutherland is adapting well to life behind bars. We're told he woke up around 8:00 AM this morning and ate his prison-issue breakfast. After that, he is scheduled for laundry duty. "We had a pretty busy night last night, so Kiefer will probably have a lot of laundry to do today," Glendale PD PIO John Balian tells TMZ. Um ... busy?
Kiefer Sutherland in Jail

In his first full day in the can, Jack Bauer learned how the jail's laundry process works; washing sheets, pillowcases, blankets and towels -- then drying and folding them. Kiefer enjoyed a processed turkey sandwich for lunch (deelish)-- and returned to laundry duty. "He's been very cooperative, doesn't complain about the duties," says Officer Balian. "You can tell he is not happy to be here, but he's accepting responsibility. He wants to do the time and get all of this behind him."

Sutherland has already taken his first jail shower -- by himself. He is not being kept in isolation, but he has little contact with other inmates. Today he is scheduled to serve lunch and dinner to fellow arrestees, bringing a little Tinseltown glamor to an otherwise glum mess hall.

In his un-free free time, Kiefer has been reading and watching TV. So far, he's had no visitors.

i'm a fan of kiefer's and i respect who he is and what he's dealing with.

MANY, MANY, MANY other people of that status and celebrity and in that industry have done so much worse than sutherland and walked away without so much as a wrist-slap. at the very least, he's taking it like a man and moving forward, paying his karmaic duties as he goes, so to speak.

good for him.

No one's visiting, Kiefer! How mean! I'll meet with and slip him some whiskey. The DTs are probably getting to him.

Why is it ok for certain female celebraties w/the exception of Paris staying for only hours when the male celebraties have days?

They're keeping him away from the other prisoners because the guards know they'll want his a**.

whether in them or behind them, obviously the Kiefster has probelms with bars of all types...

I think any man should be cautious to refer to their jail term as "putting things BEHIND them'.. Any refernce to your pokey, while in the pokey is no jokey...

Hey tmz , do you know what the word 'redundant' means? 8:00 AM in the morning? Are you guys retarded? Learn how to write or hire someone who knows.

Yes law enforcement does call inmates by first names if the names are known.

Anyone want to chip so we can buy Candace Kane (#5) a 2nd grade English textbook so she can learn to formulate a proper sentence?

That said, Kiefer is doing his time without complaint. I'm sure he could have pleaded not guilty and ended up with another slap on the wrist but he decided to do the right thing. I'd be more than happy to visit him!

Oops, I forgot the word "in" in my comment above. "Anyone want to chip IN"? How ironic LOL

Hi. Mr. Panther No. 9 it's Candace Kane M.D. I have no time to look at his show , but I've seen enough drunks in my career that I know he needs big time help. Let's hope he gets it. I did not mean any disrespect regarding his acting. Written by C. Kane M.D. Addiction Research Foundation
