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.
