Somewhere, a bunch of hardened women in a California jail are really disappointed. Because Lindsay Lohan has just been put under house arrest, serving her jail sentence in her Venice Beach home.
Lohan began serving her arrest Thursday morning after surrendering herself to the Lynwood Jail at 5:02 a.m. L.A. Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore said:
"She is now confined to the interior premises of her home at all times."
I know it might not seem like punishment, because you'd love to be at home all day. But Lohan's career is now based entirely on unflattering photographs of her getting in and out of cars or losing her bikini in the ocean. How is she supposed to do that from home?
Upon entering the jail, Lohan was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet and then released. No booking photo was taken. After pleading no contest to the whole necklace thing, Lohan was sentenced to four months in jail. But because of overcrowding, she was allowed to serve from home.
Good news for Lohan, too, because if she's good, she might be able to reduce that sentence to two weeks or less.
And she's not completely getting away with her alleged theft. She's also serving 480 hours of community service, frequenting a downtown women's shelter and also serving janitorial duty at the L.A. County morgue.
