Lindsay Lohan has barely settled into her 12-by-8 cell at a Lynwood, California jail and already she’s making plans to head home.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Steve Whitemore told CNN that “unless something unusual happens” the troubled actress - who was remanded into custody to begin her jail term yesterday - will likely serve 13 to 15 days (or 25 percent) of her 90-day sentence.
Whitemore adds that this is routine for an inmate like Lohan, who was convicted of misdemeanor probation violation in a DUI case and, in the state of California, is eligible for "good time/work time" credit (when an inmate serves their time in an acceptable manner).
According to People, the 24-year-old star will likely be confined to her cell for 22 hours each day during her stay at the Lynwood facility. She is denied access to the Internet and a cell phone, has to use generic grooming products and is not allowed to smoke.
It’s not all bad, however. “They watch 'I Love Lucy,' 'Wheel of Fortune,' and a local news channel all day long,” a jail insider told the magazine.
