All the lawyers in the world couldn't prevent Lindsay Lohan from serving time in jail. After spending time in a sober living facility, Lohan headed to L.A. court on the morning of July 20 to surrender, and begin her 90-day jail sentence for violating probation resulting from a DUI. Wearing a gray T-shirt under a black jacket, she was accompanied by her mother, Dina Lohan, and lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley (famed O.J. attorney Robert Shapiro visited the judge on Monday, to confirm that he would not, in fact, be representing the troubled starlet when she turned herself in).
Michael Lohan appeared on the courthouse steps after Lindsay surrendered Tuesday, but said little; his laywer told the press that Lilo's dad spent the morning praying for his daughter and does not believe she deserves incarceration. (Dina breezed out of court without a statement.)
When news first broke that Lohan was facing jail time after setting off her alcohol-monitoring SCRAM bracelet and failing to attend court-mandated alcohol-education classes, 67 percent of iVillage readers voted that the actress needed to spend time behind bars.
So, now that Lohan is doing just that, do you think her time there will help her? Or does her latest tweet on the eve of jail -- in which she said, "The only 'bookings" that i'm familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that i'd be 'booking' into Jail... eeeks" -- prove that LiLo isn't taking her situation seriously? Here's what iVillagers have been saying about the situation:
"She needs to go to jail. She has a problem that many in our society have: They are unable to own up to their faults. I call it the blameless generation. She needs to learn there are consequences for all actions and that just because she is famous doesn't get her off the hook."
"She is not going to jail for help, she's going because she repeatedly broke the conditions placed on her by the judge. She was pretty much flaunting her disregard for the orders. She needs to grow up and take responsibility for her juvenile behavior. It's a shame her mother is such an enabler."
"Once she gets out, she'll go back to doing the same she was before. She knows who she is, what she has and what she can do. If she lost everything, I can see higher chances of changing. As of now, nothing will change."
"Sorry to say, she thinks she is a queen, but now she knows the law is the law. Just maybe, this could be a wake up call. For her sake I hope she can change her ways."
