Lohan Gets 1 Day in Jail

Celebrity justice continues as Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to ONE day in jail for her SEVEN misdemeanors.

Lohan pleaded no contest to two counts of DUI (driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher), two counts of being under the influence of a controlled substance (cocaine; 2 separate incidents) and she pleaded no contest to reckless driving.

Because it was her second DUI offense, she was required by law to serve four days, however, the judge gave her one day credit for the time served after her bust(s) and cut the four in half by "ordering her to perform 10 days community service."

Lucky Lohan will serve 36 months probation and must attend an alcohol education program for 18 months. For the controlled substance plea, she was ordered to not use controlled substances (you don't say?!), must enroll in a drug program and is required to stay for an unspecified amount of time at the Utah rehab facility she is currently in.

If Nicole Richie's 82 minutes are any indication, Lohan won't even serve a full day.

January 18 is "D" day for her. She must show she successfully completed rehab.

Lohan released a statement to TMZ:

"It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs.

Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case. No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself. I thank God I did not injure others. I easily could have.

I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so. I am taking these steps to improve my life. Luckily, I am not alone in my daily struggle and I know that people like me have succeeded. Maybe with time it will become easier. I hope so."

You know they'll have her in there for a shorter period than Nicole. Nicole was given 4 days and Lindsay was given 1. Unbelievable. Looks like the L.A. justice system wants someone to die (an innocent victim like that Prison Break guy killed) again.
