A Beverly Hills judge was adamant that Lindsay Lohan serve jail time for violating her probation, ordering the actress to 90 days behind bars and 90 days in an inpatient rehab facility earlier this month. “It’s like someone who cheats but doesn’t think it’s cheating if they don’t get caught,” Judge Marsha Revel said about the troubled star’s behavior at the time.
On Tuesday (July 20), only hours after Lohan turned herself in to begin her sentence, it was reported that her bid would be reduced to a possible 14 days due to prison overcrowding.
According to the Los Angeles Times, a spokesman in the Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the former Disney star has a projected release date of August 1 or 2.
Because Lohan is a nonviolent offender, she is eligible to serve only 25 percent of her already reduced time of 51 days, which was brought down from 90 days because of overcrowding, Steve Whitmore told the Times.
Lohan changed lawyers after her sentencing, and new attorney Robert Shapiro , who represented O.J. Simpson during his 1994 murder trial, reportedly said he would push for his client to be placed in rehab instead of prison. When it became clear the actress would have to serve jail time, though, she returned to her original lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, who accompanied Lohan to court Tuesday morning, where the “Mean Girls” star turned herself in.
