Lindsay Lohan Jail-Time Likely To Be Fraction Of Sentence

Despite Lindsay Lohan's emotional display upon hearing her sentence in court today, she might take some comfort in a report from the LA Times noting that in all likelihood, she will only serve a small fraction of the 90 days. From the Times:

Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said women sent to jail for nonviolent crimes generally serve 25% or less of their sentence due to overcrowding.

Whitmore said the exact time served can depend on the wording of the judge's order and the level of overcrowding in the jails.

.

The Times goes on to note that Paris Hilton was released from jail after 4 days of a 45-day sentence.
