The mid-2000s were a time when celebrity DUIs were the norm. 2007 saw Lindsay Lohan in jail for 84 minutes after she pleaded guilty to “drunken driving and cocaine-possession,” per Reuters. Besides spending minimal time behind bars, the troubled actress was also “sentenced to 10 days of community service, three years probation and 18 months of an alcohol-education program.”
Fast forward to 2010, when the starlet was hit with the truth that she’d be a jail bird again. As ABC News reported, Lohan was charged with violating her probation for failing to attend her alcohol education classes. As the judge read the verdict of 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab, the Mean Girls star sobbed theatrically.
Lucky for Lohan, the tears were for naught, as she only served 14 days out of her sentence. Per The Guardian, the actress was released due to “overcrowding” and “good behavior.” While prison officials said she was “treated like any other inmate in her classification,” other inmates dished to Daily News about rumors of her “special treatment.” Debra Sickels, another inmate, noted that Lohan had a special room with “a regular hospital bed, a TV and a dresser for her new clothes and socks.” If that wasn’t enough, others revealed the celeb was “paying for special food and new clothes … and access to a private phone.” Granted, Lohan was no violent offender, but that doesn’t exactly sound like hard time.
