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

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

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.”
