Lohan Sentenced to Jail, Rehab

Lindsay Lohan was sentenced Tuesday to 90 days in jail and 90 days in a residential substance-abuse program for violating her probation stemming from two separate 2007 cases of driving under the influence of cocaine and alcohol according to the Associated Press.

Lohan will surrender on July 20 and serve her sentence at the Century Regional Detention Center, followed by rehab. This is where Paris Hilton served her jail time for 23 days in 2007 after she was found guilty of driving on a suspended license and in violation of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless-driving case.


Despite the fact that Lohan’s jail sentence will delay production of "Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story," in which the 24-year-old actress plays the starring role, Writer-Director Matthew Wilder stands behind the actress.


“"We are proud to have this remarkable artist work on our film," he said.


Lohan’s jail sentence may also prevent her from promoting her new fashion line, “6126,” as well as, adversely impact a civil case filed against her after her second arrest in 2007 which is scheduled to begin trial a week after Lohan surrenders.


It is possible for Lohan to serve less than her 90-day sentence due to jail overcrowding and a state program that credits inmates for good behavior according to Los Angeles Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore.
