L.A. County Sheriff

We Got Room for Lindsay in Jail

10/20/2011 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If Lindsay Lohan is sentenced to jail next month, she WILL do time behind bars -- this according to L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca.

Baca just told FOX 11's Good Day L.A. ... the overcrowding problem will not keep Lindsay out of jail.  Lindsay, he says,  is a "sick" drug addict who needs jail to beat her demons -- and if the judge decides to sentence Lindsay for a probation violation, he'll make damn sure she serves time.

According to Baca, Lindsay needs at least 60 days in the slammer to be properly rehabilitated.

Judge Stephanie Sautner made a comment on the bench yesterday, suggesting that sentencing Lindsay to jail was futile because it's become a revolving door. But Baca is now giving her assurance to the contrary.

I don't think lock up cures addiction but at least she'll be clean while she's in there

Watch her blame it on her attorney, SCH, you know....the black lady...

I can't stand this girl. And anyone with vision can see she was on drugs when she was in court. Her bloodshot and crazy eyes were a dead give away, along with her really screwed up makeup and filthy hands again....

Uuugggghhh, she won't learn anything till she hits rock bottom with no safety net. And from the looks of her these days, it doesn't appear to be that far away.

Ok I am no Lohan fan but come on TMZ lets not turn this into a witch hunt. We dont need Bacca being interviewed about how he is going to see to it Lindsay do her time. We all saw what he did with Hilton. There should be plenty of room for Lindsay in jail as she is in a special section and only takes up 1 cell. The GP area is overflowing with POOR inmates who cant afford to make bail therefore many are held on minor offences until they plea deal out. Although I will say this I hope he is telling the truth and this criminal junkie will have to finally pay for all her misdeeds once and for all.

What a dumb ass. If she's a sick drug addict she needs treatment, not a cell with abusive ********. No wonder our jails are so #@#$%! up!

You guys are all wrong!

Dina said Lindsay is "great", "wonderful," "really on" her community service and "supposed to be an actress". In fact, Lindsay is doing a photoshoot or something in Milan right now.

Haters!

E HAS TO TREAT LINDSAY THE SAME AS ANY OTHER PRISONER. THIs is just some political BS by an elected sheriff. I still think
th,e judge will let her slide, and if she doesn't than it will be home arrest or a week or two in jail. The sheriff can't be extra hard on Lindsay because she is a celebrity.

No, jail would not set her straight in just 60 days. What she needs is 6 months in county and then send her to a long-term (at least 12 months) treatment center far, far away from Hollywood, her "friends", her parents and prying eyes (TMZ included). If not, she will die...period!

Enough    

60 days isn't near enough. It would simply be a temporary bandaid and she'd be pulled back into her previous lifestyle, again. She needs 6 months to begin to find the inner strength to remove herself from the influence of her "business contacts and friends" and to find the inner strength to stand up for herself and tell them, "NO!"

cos    

lot of haters in the world I guess... can someone not just save this girl already? she has to be close to her breaking point. Then all we will hear is "why didn't anyone do anything" and "what is wrong with hollywood?". Some please just tackle this girl and ensure she receives the help she is obviously so desperately in need of. PLEASE
