What Will Life Be Like for Lindsay Lohan in Jail?

From plenty of alone time to prison chic, find out what the actress has in store during her incarceration

Lindsay Lohan will be serving a 90-day stint in jail, but is prison time for a celebrity exactly like incarceration for everybody else? The answer: yes and no. According to legal experts and former inmates who've spoken to news outlets including the New York Daily News, here's what the troubled 24-year-old actress has in store for her: 

Lots of alone time. Because Lohan is a high-profile inmate, she'll be separated from the general population and confined to a cell by herself. She'll probably be allowed out for just one hour a day.

Cafeteria food, but worse. According to one former inmate, prison food specials include "teri-yucky" (teriyaki), "mystery meat" (baloney sandwiches), "erasers" (chicken patties) and "s**t on a shingle" (ground beef and potatoes on toast). They do, however, sell candy bars at the commissary, so she'll still be able to satisfy her sweet tooth.

Early wake-up calls. Forget sleeping in. Lohan may be notoriously bad at showing up on time for film shoots, but that won't be an option in prison: the PA system wakes everyone up at 5 a.m. sharp.

No cute underwear. Along with her dark blue prison uniform, Lohan will be required to wear prison-issue (i.e. used) bras and underwear. Make-up is also forbidden. On the plus side, at least dark blue is a better color for her than bright orange.

Time off for good behavior. Most celebrities seem to serve a significantly shorter sentence than they were given -- partly because it's so time-consuming and expensive for state prisons to keep them isolated and protected. Paris Hilton served 23 days out of 45; Michelle Rodriguez served 18 days out of 180; and Nicole Richie served only 82 minutes of a four-day sentence. Unless Lohan is a problem inmate, she may end up serving just a fraction of her court-ordered time. She might be back to sleeping late and eating well in a matter of weeks.
