    Default Lindsay Lohan gets 1 day in jail on DUI plea

    Lohan gets 1 day in jail on DUI plea
    By SANDY COHEN, AP Entertainment Writer
    6 minutes ago

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Lindsay Lohan reached a plea deal Thursday on misdemeanor drunken driving and cocaine charges that calls for her to spend one day in jail, serve 10 days of community service and complete a drug treatment program.

    She was also placed on 36 months probation, is required to complete an 18-month alcohol education program, pay hundreds of dollars in fines and must complete a three-day county coroner program in which she'll visit a morgue and talk to victims of drunken drivers.

    "It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs," Lohan said in a statement released by publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnik.

    She said she did things she was ashamed of. "I broke the law and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case."

    "She's getting what everyone else would get," Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers said after an hourlong hearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge H. Chester Horn Jr.'s courtroom. Terms of the plea bargain were worked out in chambers.

    If Lohan were to be convicted of another DUI, she would receive a mandatory 120-day jail sentence, Meyers said.

    "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," Lohan's statement went on.

    Lohan was charged earlier in the day with seven misdemeanors stemming from two drunken-driving arrests in the last four months. More serious felony drug charges were not filed, prosecutors said, because tests showed there wasn't enough cocaine on her to warrant them.

    Attorney Blair Berk entered pleas on Lohan's behalf: she pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of cocaine; no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above .08 percent and one count of reckless driving. Two counts of driving under the influence were dropped.

    Lohan was arrested on May 26 in Beverly Hills and on July 24 in Santa Monica. In each incident, the amount of cocaine tested was below the .05 grams required for felony charges, according to the district attorney's office.

    Each of Lohan's arrests were followed by trips to rehab.

    Lohan's legal problems come on the heels of two other high-profile celebrity DUI cases that resulted in jail time. Paris Hilton served 23 days behind bars after she was found guilty of driving on a suspended license while on probation for an alcohol-related reckless-driving case. Nicole Richie was ordered to serve four days in jail stemming from a December DUI arrest.

    Lohan crashed her Mercedes-Benz into a tree on Sunset Boulevard in May and fled the scene to seek medical treatment. Police tests revealed that a white powder found in Lohan's purse was .04 grams of cocaine.

    Lohan checked into the posh Promises rehabilitation facility in Malibu after the incident. She left the facility July 13 after six weeks of treatment. She was photographed wearing an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet after her release.

    Lohan was arrested again on July 24 following a 911 call by Michelle Peck, the mother of Lohan's former personal assistant. Peck told police she was being chased by an SUV. Police later said Lohan was the driver.

    Lohan's blood-alcohol level was between 0.12 and 0.13 percent when police found her, officials said. Police also found a white powder in her pocket that was determined to be .02 grams of cocaine.

    She was enrolled in a drug rehab center in Sundance, Utah, attorneys confirmed in court Thursday.

    Lohan started 2007 in rehab at the Wonderland Center in Los Angeles.

    Lohan's latest film, "I Know Who Killed Me," opened in July to lackluster response.

    "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," Lohan said in her statement. "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."

    Well...I was actually kind of excited and following the hype of Lindsay possibly going to jail but one day? One freakin' day?

    And bullshit! This is so not what anyone else would get...

    The brain doesn't need blood. It just needs to be kept wet.

    She probably won't spend that one day in jail, cause that one day/night that she spent at the officers headquarters counts as one day already served. Just a guess.

    WTF is up with that? One day? God, she was arrested twice!

    And we all know she probably wont end up going at all because of "good behavior" or some load of crap like that..

    This is relatively fair. Not many people do real time their first couple offenses. I'm satisfied.

    I'm kinda wondering what defense attorneys in LA county will do with the precedent.

    If I'm defending a kid from Inglewood facing the same offenses I'm arguing my client deserves the same deal.

    Robert Smigel who makes those animated films for Saturday Night Live (TV Funhouse), has really got to make one about Lindsay, Paris, Nicole and Britney.

    I agree. Around here you don't do time until your 4th or 5th drunk driving offense, and as far as having cocaine on you, if it is less than a gram they consider it personal use. It's worse to have more than 1 gram because that is considered possesion with intent to distribute, and even then, your not going to jail on your 1st or 2nd offense.

    No matter how much people will complain about the injustice again, this is a perfectly normal sentence.
