Lindsay Lohan's speedy sentence

Lindsay Lohan served just 84 minutes of her 24-hour jail sentence yesterday (15.11.07). The 'Mean Girls' star handed herself in to Los Angeles County's Lynwood Jail at 10.30am to serve the remainder of her DUI (driving under the influence) sentence and was released at 11.54am. Nicole Richie served 82 minutes in the same prison for a DUI conviction in August, while earlier this year, Paris Hilton served 23 days at Lynwood for driving with a suspended licence. Lindsay was sentenced to the mandatory minimum of four days in jail after pleading no contest to two DUI charges. Prosecutors agreed to reduce this to just two days if she served 10 days of community service. The 21-year-old actress had already served one day after the authorities gave her credit for the time she spent in custody following her July arrest. Lindsay - who checked out of Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab centre on October 5 after a stay of over two months - was also placed on three years probation and must complete an 18-month alcohol education programme as part of her plea bargain. The 'Freaky Friday' star began her community at a Los Angeles American Red Cross blood services facility blood donor centre on Monday (12.11.07).
