Actress Lindsay Lohan is to begin her 90-day jail sentence Tuesday, July 20, 2010, for violating her probation from a 2007 DUI charge.
Lindsay Lohan reported to Beverly Hills courthouse this morning to surrender to serve her jail time. There was a swarm of photographers, reporters and fans awaiting Lohan’s arrival outside the courthouse.
Lohan is expected to be booked into the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California today.
L.A. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore has said Lohan would likely be segregated from the general population “for her protection as well as the jail staff.”
Lohan is apparently still in denial about the jail sentence and thinks she will somehow avoid it.
Her hearing with Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel was to take place at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 20. Judge Revel is not allowing cameras in the courtroom for this hearing, where Lohan is expected to be handcuffed and taken into custody.
“The only ‘bookings’ that i’m familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that i’d be “booking” into Jail… eeeks,” Lindsay Lohan posted on Twitter Monday night.
It is unclear who will be representing Lohan in court today. Lohan’s previous attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, resigned shortly after Lohan was sentenced for her probation violation. It was said that Lohan hired former O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Shapiro last week, but but Holley never signed the substitution paperwork filed with the court on Friday, according to Los Angeles Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini.
Lohan is expected to serve only 1/3 of her 90-day sentence due to overcrowding. Judge Revel has ordered her to enter a substance abuse rehab program within 24 hours of leaving jail.
Lohan’s father, Michael Lohan, arrived at the courthouse just before her scheduled court appearance.
Via Twitter, Lohan wrote Sunday night, “I don’t want Michael Lohan Sr. anywhere near me, no matter where I am. I am in a great place and he only brings negativity in my world.”
