L.A. County Sheriff

We Got Room for Lindsay in Jail

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.

Hey Lee Baca, your one to talk! How much are you really hiding from us? Let he without sin cast the first stone! It's real easy to do Mr. Baca! Let's see ALL the county files that you let SLIP away! Justice is coming! The people have spoken (see them marching in the streets and camping at city hall.) We demand to know the real truth that the county & city refuse to shed light on. Budget crisis, YEAH RIGHT!

Hmm, this would be interesting, having just read several stories in the LA Times the past week about abuse of male prisoners under Baca. Is she under the jurisdiction of LA County or LA City (two different systems)?

This is vulgar that a senior authority of the American justice process would mouth off about a specific celebrity like that for the media. It is not cool. It is for shame. Your tax dollars are paying him to do that. Don't be a foolish lemming.

If you have room in your jail, the police, and judges are not doing their sworn duty. You could.....should be full of illegal immigrants, especially the criminal ones and there sure are plenty of those.

Forget about Lindsey, she is small potatoes compared to the criminal illegal immigrants you people are protecting.

Haranguing Lindsey is a poor excuse for claiming to be doing your job.

This has really become a big joke and she knows it, it would help if the judge would not set bail straight up do the time. 90 days is average for a violation of probation, i didnt show up for court one time one time and i went to jail if it was anyone else they would be put in jail, and stay their, she has the money to post bail, so thats not going to work, don't set bail she's making the judge look like an idiot a big one at that, for example she didnt show up at the morgue issue a warrent go to her house and get her what the problem here somethings up i am starting to think its not lindsey anymore.

Kudos to Sheriff Baca!!! I don't blame him for covering his ass. This discourages Judge Sautner from giving Lindsay another pass. All she has to do is issue the orders and Sheriff Baca has "publicly" assured everyone a space will be set aside for Lindsay. What more can she ask for??? This young woman has been "shielded" from the "harsh" realities of life as an addict far too long!!! If she's smart, she'll do her time, then write a book and do a TV series about her experiences as a young starlet living "on the edge" in Hollywood. There's certainly an "upside" to being a "high profile" criminal!!!
