Michael Lohan

Gets Off SUPER EASY

in Domestic Violence Case

11/16/2011 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan in jail
It seems like Lindsay Lohan was treated like a mass murderer compared to the sentence Michael Lohan got for allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend last month ... because unlike his daughter, MiLo was NOT sentenced to the slammer.

Lohan -- who was accused of beating the crap out of his ex-GF Kate Major back in October -- appeared in a Tampa courtroom today and pled no contest to 4 misdemeanors ... involving an incident at Kate's apartment last month, in which he allegedly got violent when she refused to perform oral sex on him.

In exchange for his no contest plea, Lohan was sentenced to 2 years probation and ordered to spend 4 months at a residential treatment center. Lohan was also ordered to complete a domestic violence batterer’s intervention program ... and he's been banned from having any contact with Kate.

Meanwhile, Lindsay was sentenced to spend 30 days in jail after she violated her probation in a case stemming from a non-violent crime.

Seem fair to you?

Wonder how long it will be before he's drunk and drugged again. I so wish someone had the video of him jumping out of that building. Now THAT would be worth seeing!

Did you ever think that that judge might have taken in the fact the she Kate Major is as bad as he is...She get throw off of a freaking plane for being drunk and disorderly just coming to Flordia to be at the trial for God's sake....Shes the one that called him first...this is not her first go around.....Yes he's a creep, a Con-artist and just plain nasty assed person but look who calling the kettle black a big black pot thats who...they should have both been hailed in that night and both charged with domectic violence....
But on the other hand I have no doubt Micheal got to skate with a little helps from friends in high places .
As for Lindsay getting of worse...TMZ you conveniently forget that she been in CONTENT trouble with the law for the last 4 yrs...she is not a simple miscmeanor anymore, she is a REPEAT OFFENDER. and and convicted theif....GET THAT .................she got off so freaking often its reduclious....break after break after break....She need to service all 270 days of her sentence in a jail cell with general population and no special privilages...

It seems fair to me. If he ***** up those conditions, THEN he'll get the book thrown at him. Personally, I don't think he can handle all of those conditions. Hence, he'll get what's coming. Besides, that chick he's been harassaing... if she would stop letting him "in" then all this drama would go by-by.

Clearly the judge credited the 4.5 seconds Lohan was airborne towards time served.

Wow, I wish Lindsay got off as "Super Easy" as Michael. He sat in jail for a bit. And take into consideration that Kate Major is a complete psychopath. Compared to his daughter, they were pretty hard on him.

He did get a jail sentence: 4 months in a residential treatment center, which is just an alternative jail cell, just as Lindsay got several times. The difference is that the prisoner pays the whole bill. He also got 2 years probation, and if he violates - he will most likely find himself in a regular jail cell for a while partly because he's male and partly because of his record.

Most people in most areas of the country with Lindsay's record of multiple DUIs, carjacking, and grand theft would have spent real time in a real jail cell by now. But when judges gave Lindsay jail sentences, they knew very well that the actual amount of time would be much less because of the crazy situation in LA. So when she got 30 days for her latest probation violations, the judge knew quite well she could be out in minutes, and would spent maximum 6 days in jail. That's more than fair. Likewise with her previous antics - the judge knew she wouldn't spend much time in jail (what was it, two weeks or less?). They sentence her to jail as a wakeup call, which she clearly still needs. The only sentences that have stuck have been mandatory rehab and mandatory community service and mandatory therapy. My guess is that the judge in Michael Lohan's case is thinking similarly - that rehab might help, couldn't hurt, and at least he'll have to stay there for the required time rather than being let loose at the whim of the sheriff. Plus whenever Kate Major is involved, the situation is unfortunately very murky. I personally think Michael is a thug, but so is Kate Major. And they're both big time liars. Who knows what actually happened?

You folks who constantly scream about how "unfair" it is to sentence Linnocent Lindsay, the poor nonviolent criminal (who only risked a bunch of other people's necks in a wild ride under the influence, got two DUIs in a very short time, thumbed her nose repeatedly at the court by violating probation and lying to the judges, and boldly stole a $2500 necklace from a merchant) to any kind of a jail term must think the judges are always astonished when she skips out the jail door so soon. They know the drill, and they know she won't spend much time in jail. In most communities, a judge can sentence a person to 3 days and expect them to stay in jail for 3 days. But not in LA. The sentences have to be higher in order to have any kind of impact at all on the scofflaws, because only a tiny fraction of the sentence will actually be served. But no judge has gone beyond the legal guidelines in Lindsay's cases, they've actually been rather kind.
--
The people who write these TMZ stories are idiots and nobody should actually believe their silly take on events. Who wrote this one, Dina Lohan?!? Are we supposed to believe that Michael Lohan's sentence has anything to do with Lindsay's multiple sentences? And are we supposed to believe that people who steal $2500 worth of retail merchandise are supposedly to be gently admonished rather than suffering legal consequences? And are people who violate probation supposed to be told "That's all right, dear. You go ahead and do what you want." What planet do the TMZ staffers live on?

F.U. TMZ, Lilo spent a couple hours in jail after TWO DUIs and all the f*ck else she did and if she ever slaughters someone while driving jacked up I hope they sue the f*ck out of the city, the state, every judge who ever let who go easy, etc.

I don't think Michael Lohan got off easy. He had to spend two weeks in jail. And now he's been sentenced to two years probation, a four month rehab, and an intervention class.
