Lindsay Lohan; Gets Jail in DUI

Lindsay Lohan will serve at least 24 hours in jail in her drunken-driving cases under the terms of a plea deal reached Thursday.

Through her attorney, the actress pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of cocaine and pleaded no contest to driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher and reckless driving.

Prosecutors dropped two counts of driving under the influence, which are which are seen as lesser offenses than the charge of driving with a .08 or higher

"Lohan received the same sentence that anyone else with a second DUI conviction would get. She got no special treatment," said Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers.

Lohan did not attend the hearing in Beverly Hills.

Although she faced a mandatory minimum of four days in jail, she was given credit for one day already served. Prosecutors also agreed she could serve 10 days of community service instead of two days in jail.

Lohan, who was also placed on three years probation and ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol education program, has until January 2008 to serve her jail sentence.

Earlier in the day, she dodged felony charges, with prosecutors filing misdemeanor counts after tests found she possessed insufficient amounts of cocaine, authorities announced.

The actress was charged with seven counts, including two counts each of driving under the influence, driving with blood alcohol of over .08 percent, being under the influence of cocaine, as well as reckless driving, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office says.

The charges stem from two separate DUI incidents, one in May in Beverly Hills and one in July in Santa Monica.

In both incidents, police found Lohan in possession of cocaine. But in each case, the amounts tested were below the .05 grams required by office policy for felony filing.

The 21-year-old actress is currently in rehab at the Cirque Lodge program in Utah.

Lohan was arrested on July 24 after allegedly hijacking an SUV with two men inside, and recklessly chasing another SUV driven by the mother of her personal assistant through the streets of Santa Monica, Calif.

She was booked for DUI, possession of cocaine, transporting a narcotic into a custody facility, and driving on a suspended license. Officers found a container on Lohan that tested at .02 grams of cocaine, according to the DA.

Lohan was previously arrested for DUI after crashing her Mercedes-Benz in Beverly Hills just two months prior. Tests showed that the substance found in her purse was .04 grams of cocaine powder.

On Aug. 14, Tracie Rice, a passenger in the car Lohan was allegedly chasing, filed a lawsuit for an undisclosed amount against the actress.

Rice "thought she was going to die that night," her attorney Paul Hoffman told PEOPLE, "and Ms. Lohan needs to be held accountable."

Lindsay Lohan issued a statement shortly after her lawyer negotiated a plea deal for the actress in her DUI cases on Thursday, taking responsibility for her actions and saying she suffers from drug and alcohol addiction.

"It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs," she said in a statement.

"Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case. No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself. I thank God I did not injure others. I easily could have.

"I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so. I am taking these steps to improve my life. Luckily, I am not alone in my daily struggle and I know that people like me have succeeded. Maybe with time it will become easier. I hope so."

I love her.

Honestly, it sounds bad, but I don't think she's any more out of control than any other Hollywood or rich kid. They're spoiled. They're screwed up. They're brats. They don't know limits. The drugs have got to stop, but there are so many 20 ish year olds across the country who are arrested for DUI's.

I agree she needs help. I just don't think she's any more out of control than any other rich 21 year olds. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but...I dunno! It's how I feel.

I know where you're coming from.

Lately, Britney is my new charity case. Some of these trainwrecks just need some direction.

Well Nicole Richie served 84 minutes of her 90 hour sentance. Do you think that means LiLo will spend 24 minutes of her 24 hour sentance?

This sickens me. My brother got popped for the same offense once and he got 5 months. She bought her way out of a sentence just like Paris and Nicole. Just sickens me.

What is going on with the Lohan family! Lindsay just copped a plea and will likely serve approximately one day in jail, and now In Touch Weekly is reporting that, last Friday, younger sister Ali was in a traffic accident in Long Island! 13-year-old Ali was allegedly sneaking out of her family's home to be "with her friend, a 16-year-old boy who has a learner's permit." Oh, and he took the car without his mom's permission. An insider says about Ali: "Luckily, she was not hurt."

Ali's currently in Utah visiting Linds. Boy, let's hope she doesn't pick up any more of her elder sister's bad habits!



LOL. This family is so screwy.
