In case you haven't heard, Lindsay Lohan is scheduled to go to jail today (and if you haven't, we want to know what state of obliviousness you've been in; we may want to visit).
Lohan's sentencing may very well go exactly according to Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel's plans, blacked-out cameras and all, but at this point, anything can happen.
So in an attempt to keep you informed, we plan on updating this blog with pertinent bits of information from Lohan’s sentencing.
The 24-year-old actress, who tweeted, “the only ‘bookings’ that i'm familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that i'd be ‘booking’ into Jail... eeeks,” is expected to arrive for sentencing Tuesday morning.
11:19 a.m. Lindsay's dad, Michael has arrived at the courthouse, even though she tweeted earlier, "I don't want Michael Lohan Sr. anywhere near me, no matter where I am." According to CNN staff on the scene, he's "somber."
11:31 a.m. Lindsay’s expected to arrive in court around 11:30, so proceedings should kick off soon. Can you imagine being 24 and having the entire world watch as you head off to jail?
11:37 a.m. Here comes Lindsay.... Didn't get a look at what she's wearing, but lots of black. And sunglasses.
11:39 a.m. The media crush outside the court is intense.
11:40 a.m. Apparently someone threw gold glitter on Lindsay on her way in...but for what? Good luck? So she'll stay shining on her way to jail?
11:42 a.m. Judge Revel says Robert Shapiro wanted to inform the court that he wouldn't be the attorney on the case. The court tried to contact Lohan and Shawn Chapman Holley to let them know.
11:43 a.m. Holley said that Shapiro acted as a consultant, but wasn't the attorney on record. Apparently there was some ambiguity, the Judge said.
11:44 a.m. Lohan looks a little surprised, but otherwise she looks ok.
11: 45 a.m. Actually, take that back. She may be on the verge of tears; Judge Revel is ready to remand her.
11:46 a.m. Or maybe not. No tears from Lindsay this time around. Cameras are now blacked out.
11:47 a.m. CNN's Alan Duke says that Lindsay showed little emotion as a deputy put her in handcuffs.
12:00 p.m. Another CNN reporter on the ground said that as Lindsay was leaving, her dad shouted, "We love you Lindsay!" The actress has since gone to the holding area for inmates. Some of you have already given your "see you in 90 days" farewell to Ms. Lohan, but according to CNN reporter Alan Duke, Judge Revel said she has no control over how many of the 90 days she'll be kept in jail. However, Lindsay will have to begin her 90-day stint in rehab within 24 hours of leaving jail, Judge Revel added.
12:02 p.m. Michael Lohan seems to be preparing for a press conference - albeit as someone yells out "loser father!" to him.
12:04 pm. Lindsay didn't head off to jail without some support: There's at least one fellow out there with a "free Lindsay" sign.
12:06 p.m. Lisa Bloom, Michael's attorney, said that his reaction to his daughter being incarcerated is: He spent the morning praying for her, and he's devastated that she's going to jail. He loves his daughter very much and will continue to pray for her. He thinks she didn't deserve to go to jail.
And with that, we conclude this live-blog.
