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.

...WOW...the coroners office talking too the press, the jail people, the judge making off the cuff remarks..( clearly she is into the press)..u'd think she was some hardened criminal..something just doesn't seem fair here..with that said..she should be treated according too the laws, but..all this press talking from the " professionals" just seems a little self serving and UNprofessional..

While I appreciate Lee Baca saying he'll incarcerate Lindsay, this is the guy who gaver her house arrest last time and whatever other slap on the wrist she got away with. It shouldn't be Baca deciding who does time and who doesn't: IT SHOULD BE THE JUDGE. Both the probation department and the sheriff's department have screwed up on this one. It's only because is so effin obviuous that Lindsay is a criminal that the sheriff feels the need to do something.

Lee Baca is a huge Scientology supporter so I hope he gets locked up with the criminal cult management some day. Travolta has already tried getting LiLo in to the stupid Purification Rundown program.

All I have to say is bullsh**. Because if a regular person didn't do there community service they would be behind bar and there would be plenty of room for them in jail.

Satan has spoken. Let her clean up the mess of the dead first. This is getting absurd. Let her go. What crime is worth all this?

The only reason he is opening his mouth is because he is trying desperately not to get fired for all the inmate abuse by his correctional officers.

Yes, he is currently being investigated and they are desperately trying to fire him for major correctional officer inmate abuse.

Isn't this Baca guy the same idiot who let Pari******on go home in the middle of her sentance due to "health concerns" and then had to go and get her again when the public revolted and nearly threw him out of office? I guess he's a quick learner.

Lindsay needs to go to a Psy Hospital for a good year. Jail is a joke. This Sheriff running his mouth should be locked up for slander.

Just because you tweet something doesn't make it true. I get so annoyed with her tweets about innocence. Just because you type it doesn't mean it's factual. Ugh.
