No Get Out of Jail Card, Special Treatment in Lindsay Lohan’s Future

Lindsay Lohan

Think Lindsay Lohan will get out of most of her 90 day jail sentence?  Think again.

“It’s County Jail.  If she were a regular Jane Doe, she might get processed out in 23, 30 days.  But the county knows it’s going to be looked at.  They don’t want people to say she got out too fast,” believes leading Hollywood-based celebrity attorney Debra Opri.  She considers it more likely that the trouble-plagued starlet will serve 60-70 per cent of her sentence for violating the terms of her probation on counts of driving under the influence and reckless driving.

“It’s going to be hell on earth,” adds the lawyer known for numerous high profile clients including the Jackson Family and James Brown.  “I don’t think there’s going to be any special treatment, but they will take steps to protect her.  Many people in there would like to say, ‘I beat up Lindsay Lohan’” – or worse.

Opri is definitely part of the camp that believes Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel’s harsh sentence will ultimately prove beneficial for the 24-year-old, who flouted the law by missing seven court-ordered alcohol counseling sessions (not to mention the obscenity she had painted on her middle fingernail at her hearing this week). “In my opinion she will survive this and will be like Robert Downey, Jr.  She is too good of an actress, too good,” says

Opri, who’d love to see Downey meet with Lohan.  “I believe she is going to overcome the addictions and thank the judge eventually.  If it weren’t for this, the system’s tough love, she would die of addiction.  She was headed for death in a matter of years.”

When Lohan went through rehab in 2007, her one-time movie mom, Jamie Lee Curtis, told us that “I have great confidence in her talent, and I have great confidence in her intelligence and in her ability to make good choices.”

Jamie Lee herself went through her own lost period with cocaine and booze – though certainly never as publicly or with the severity of Lohan.  She has talked about bonding with her father, ‘50s matinee idol Tony Curtis, by doing cocaine together over a period of time.  When she realized the habit had become destructive and decided to quit, their closeness evaporated for years – but she became wildly successful in both her personal and professional lives.  Here’s hoping Lohan looks to her example.

About Stacy Jenel Smith

I grew up in the San Fernando Valley when it was a kids' Shangri La in the 60s and we had Fabulous Eddie's miniature golf and trampolines on Ventura Boulevard. My big brother frequented The Third Eye psychedelic shop back in the day, but he wound up turning out anyway. Dad was an NBC video man who worked on "Laugh-In," Dean Martin's show, and specials by everyone from Sinatra to Fred Astaire. Mom was a first class home maker and PTA and GCA volunteer. They're still doing great. Anxious to get going in life, I quit college and jumped into journalism when I was still a teenager, and was writing for the New York Times syndicate and People magazine before turning 20. But that was a long time, many adventures, lots of traveling around the world and thousands of interviews ago. I go back to the very last days of hot type and getting to talk to Henry Fonda and Bette Davis, and Sammy Davis at the old Brown Derby...What a ride. That's in no small part thanks to my amazing writing partner, Marilyn Beck, one of the grand old-school Hollywood columnist stars -- a true star -- who knows how to do it right. I'm lucky, for sure. Now is fun, too. I love going out to events with my 17-year-old daughter (Jonas Brothers!). Seeing everything fresh through her eyes renews my excitement about the game. In-between I went back and finished school -- University of Redlands -- married, divorced, and at long last found my true love. My favorite things outside of the show business realm are being with my family, my faith and spiritual growth, learning new things (from doing Qigong to uploading stuff on Facebook), and running. See you on the trail.
