What Life Is Like for Lindsay Lohan Behind Bars
By PopEater Staff Posted Jul 21st 2010 02:00PM
Lindsay Lohan surrendered herself to authorities on Tuesday to begin serving her 90-day jail sentence. But what will life behind bars be like for the 'Mean Girls' actress?
Her cell at the women's correctional facility in Lynwood, California, is 12-by-8 feet, and she will be separated from the other 1,800 prisoners, according to the Associated Press. Lohan joins a list of famous females who've been housed in the same jail, including Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Khloe Kardashian and 'Lost' alum Michelle Rodriguez.
In a twist of fate, Alexis Neiers, star of E!'s 'Pretty Wild,' is in the cell next to Lohan's. Neiers is currently incarcerated for her part in a string of robberies that hit celebrity homes -- including Lohan's, USA Today reports. Yahoo says Lindsay occupies cell 28, with Neiers in 29.
Although Neiers is behind bars specifically for burglarizing Orlando Bloom, a watch stolen from Lindsay was found at the Neiers' home.
Meanwhile, Lohan's first visitor was her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley. "Understandably, Lindsay's having a difficult time adjusting as it would be for anyone. She's trying to make the necessary adjustments to an extremely stressful and difficult situation. There were some tears," the lawyer told PEOPLE.
For other visitors, there are a few issues: "It's a four-hour wait for visitors, which is totally crazy. Dina and Lindsay's other visitors will have to wait on line with everyone else," a source close to the actress tells PopEater.
The source also adds, "Her father will not be allowed to visit her. She wants no part of him."
She does have some support while inside. When Lohan arrived at the facility, the inmates cheered for her.
"Lindsay was crying when she came in. She was handcuffed but seemed calm. We all started saying 'God bless you Lindsay' and saying 'Hi' to her and then she smiled at us," prisoner Tiffany Hawes, who was being released at the same time, explained to Britain's Daily Mail.
TMZ has the details on her daily routine while she's locked away. She'll be allowed to exercise three times a week, shower every other day, and will be served two cold meals and one hot meal every day.
What will she do with the 20-hours a day she'll spend alone? "Lindsay is going to spend her time in jail writing new songs that she will record the second she gets out. Her emotions are so raw at the moment the material will be her best ever. It will definitely get nominated for a Grammy," PopEater's source says.
If she behaves herself and the jail remains overcrowded, Lohan will only have to spend 12-13 days behind bars for violating her probation from previous drug and alcohol arrests, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said on Tuesday. It's a big break for Lohan, who was given 90 days by a judge and was initially expected to serve about 23 days of that sentence.
Steve Whitmore told reporters that nonviolent female inmates generally serve about 25 percent of their sentence, principally because of overcrowding in the jail system. He indicated to PEOPLE that Lohan would likely be released from Century Regional Detention Facility either August 1 or 2.
At Tuesday's hearing, Beverly Hills Judge Marsha Revel ordered that Lohan must not be released to house arrest or electronic monitoring and also slashed the 24-year-old's transition time between jail and her 90-day rehab stint from 48 to 24 hours.
Lohan was sentenced July 6 to 90 days in jail and a 90-day inpatient rehabilitation program for violating probation on an old DUI and drug case.
