Kiefer Still Doing Time -- And Laundry

1/11/2008 6:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Keifer SutherlandTMZ has exclusively learned that Kiefer Sutherland will not be released early -- he's gotta do his full 48 days. He checked in on Dec. 5.

According to officer John Balian of the Glendale PD, Kiefer's not gonna get the Michelle Rodriguez treatment. His release date is scheduled for January 21.

Kiefer is still behaving well, and is considered an A+ type of inmate. He does not complain about anything and is still on laundry duty. He was never assigned to kitchen stuff.

Sutherland has not received visitors throughout his stay in jail -- no one came during the holidays -- or his birthday, but he gets tons of mail from fans all over the world.

Yes indeed we do love that show . You , sir , are in our prayers for your effort to rccover from the drink . Alot' of what problems actors or Celebs have is kinda' creepy to know , i mean , I know much more about them than they ever will of me . But some actors do strick a chord... Keifer being one of them
.Much like my admiration for the Baldwin brothers , who are entertainment sub-genuises as far as I am concerned , do have problems , I , maybe unlike others , try to look at the whole person .
Good luck on your progress . As always ... I enjoy the show to no ends .

I am very proud of Kiefer for the way he has handled this whole situation. He is a perfect example of how to conduct yourself when you make a mistake. Love You Kiefer.

However I believe the court and the guy in charge of the jail there in Glendale should let Kiefer out early. If anyone has every deserved time off for good behavior, it is Kiefer. I'm sure if he was a she, he would be out by now. It's situations like this that make me see how unfair the "justice system is"

I agree. No doubt, he asked his friends and family not to visit in order to avoid the media frenzy, etc. Kudos to Keifer for taking this responsibility seriously and privately, and staying under the media radar. He's no saint, but his actions certainly have class. How unlike Hilton, and the rest of the brat pack media twits.

Rock on, Kief! I've been a fan ever since I saw you play the thug big brother in the movie "Stand By Me." It's not easy, but you're showing all these trashy, whining crybabies how it's done. You're a class act, an adult in a world full of spoiled little brats. We're with you!

I will glad when this is over for Kiefer. He's a great actor and I have been a fan of his for over 20 years. So what if he lets off a little steam every now and then. He got a DUI and did his time without complaining or putting his family and friends through the ordeal of coming to visit him. The photogs and especially TMZ would have been all over them. He's a stand up guy. Love you Kiefer.

Kiefer please note the correct spelling, K*I*E*F*E*R. is a great example of someone who made a mistake but apologised and took the punishment with dignity and grace and without one single word of complaint. He is a shinning example of how one should behave when you’ve messed up. As other posters have stated the reason he didn’t have visitors was because he chose not to have visitors, his choice OK. When Kiefer is released it’s entirely his business whether or not he continues to drink, the only thing he needs to do is drink responsibly and not drive. Drinking isn’t illegal again his choice his life his decision. Do any of us have a right to judge him? Go Kiefer you rock.

Keifer is an alcoholic. He's messed up big time, but the media ignores him. TMZ et al would rather exploit the Hollywood girls' minor indescretions than expose a male star's failings.

Ignores him? They were all over this story when he was arrested idiot. At least he is being a man and doing his time without complaining, which is more than I can say for any of these girls you are talking about. Get a grip, man-hater. Loser.

THe good news is that this guy will actually have to be sober for the entire 48 days, which is probably something of a record for him.

I agree with an eirlier post that said that "the media" follows every move of Paris Hilton or Britney Spears. What a difference between the coverage of Paris's imprisonment and Keifer Sutherland's! And Keifer actually did soemthing really bad with a major DUI.

You know I don’t want to make any personal comments against other posters here, I believe that we can all make our points without resorting to name calling. I think that if Nichole, Paris et al had shown the same integrity and good grace that Kiefer has, they would have earned themselves a lot more respect than they currently enjoy. Kiefer has won a lot of respect and kudos with the media because of the considerate and courteous way he always treats everyone. What goes around comes around and I think the press have treated him in a more considerate way than some others because he is a decent stand up guy trying to do the right thing. We shouldn’t judge someone solely on their mistakes but view the person as a whole. I understand Kiefer is a very hard working, polite, kind and generous person who contributes a lot to society and shouldn’t be compared in anyway to the other whinning celebrities previously mentioned, he is in a different league altogether.
