Was Lindsay Lohan’s Jail Sentence Unfair?

/ July 7, 2010

For all of Dina Lohan’s faults you can’t say that she never stands up for her children.

With her daughter Lindsay Lohan heading for jail, a “flabbergasted” Dina told PopEater that she felt that Lindsay was unfairly targeted:

This is so not fair to do this to my child.

The 24-year-old actress was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab after she was charged with violating her parole stemming from a 2007 DUI case in which she drunkenly raced after a former assistant in a friend’s car. Once Lindsay was caught police allegedly found cocaine in her pocket. Now on parole, Lindsay was charged with continually missing her required alcohol education classes and violating other terms of her probation.

While Dina may find the sentence “unfair,” a lawyer tells Hollywood Life that Lindsay’s punishment wasn’t out of the ordinary or unfair by any means:

I personally have known [Judge Marsha Revel] and she’s a very tough judge. [In Lindsay], she sees somebody who has repeatedly flaunted the orders of the court and has multiple parole violations; I think she thought it was the proper sentence. Lindsay is not getting a better deal than anybody else.

Even though she will be heading for the slammer, Lindsay will probably only serve 25% of her sentence since Los Angeles jails are overcrowded and most inmates serve 25-50% of their sentencing.
