Lindsay Lohan apparently got a break on that “30-day sentence” she received last week for a probation violation. The troubled actress checked into jail around 9 p.m. Sunday and was out a little more than four hours later, People magazine reports.
The quick release was attributed to a federal mandate related to jail overcrowding, which has nonviolent offenders routinely being released “after serving only a fraction of their sentences,” the story reports. The quick stop at jail reportedly took place at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif.
Lohan was sentenced last week to 30 days in jail after admitting she violated her probation in connection with a DUI case and that infamous necklace theft, as previously reported. Word surfaced at the time that she was allowed a few days before reporting to complete a nude photo shoot for Playboy.
Lohan still has a potential 270-day jail sentence hanging over her head if she fails to live up to the terms of her probation. The People report adds: “She must now walk an extremely thin tightrope, working an additional 53 days of janitorial duty at the L.A. morgue and attending 18 more psychotherapy sessions, all by the end of March.”
