Accompanied by the effervescent Shawn Holly, Lohan arrived to the Lynwood Jail at 5:02 AM this morning to check in -- where she was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet. She was quickly sent home to her pad in Venice, CA and we're told she'll spend roughly 35 days in confinement.

According to the booking sheet, 24-year-old Lohan was listed at 5'7" and 117 lbs.

The sentence stems from Lohan's legal troubles involving a necklace she allegedly stole from a Venice jeweler. Lohan pled no contest in the case.

In addition to the house arrest, Lohan was also ordered to complete 480 hours of community service – which includes a stint at the L.A. County morgue.

There is no drug or alcohol screening, and there was no booking photo, according to the news reports in LA. She is confined to the interior of her home, and can not go outside. It is expected to end June 29th. Her next progress report/court appearance is July 21st.

The sentence reduction in home confinement, due to the same issues argued in sentence reduction for jail time is perverse. There is no over crowding in home confinement.

I doubt she will survive the entire 35 days without issues. One last point: she looks heavier then 117, just saying.

Oh you are so, so right, Pablo. I must remember to call my lawyer for parking too close to the curb...or putting my dog's poo into the public trash can...or using too much water on my lawn during the restricted water months. How we lawbreakers must stick together and do everything we can to get ourselves out of our dastardly deeds.

Sparced --

jail and prison overcrowding has nothing to do with her house arrest being shortened so much, or that they didn't set restrictions upon it, like a SCRAM, no visitors, etc.

---

If the alternative is non violent offenders turning down plea deals for lengthy house arrests, because they know if they go to jail they'll be free and clear in 35 days with time off for overcrowding...then it most definitely contributed to overcrowding at the jail.

Offering house arrest with time off for overcrowding provides an incentive to take the house arrest deal, instead of opting for going to jail and getting it over with MUCH more quickly.

Given the cir***stances i just don't see what the big deal is. So someone is serving the same sentence they would have at the jail, but at home instead because they are a non violent offender and they need the jail space for violent offenders.

Big deal, who cares...

Pablo --

It is immoral and unAmerican to have a multi-tiered justice system that depends on status and bank account. Lady Justice wears a blindfold for a reason.

Red Cloud,

I have no problem with you wanting to kiss puffy duck lips, stroke a balding head of hair, touch her rough, orange skin, kiss those filthy dirty nails or tickle that pale, coke-bloated chin...but please...don't expect us to enjoy it.

Agreed. No way Lindsay is 117, unless she suddenly shrunk to 5'.
