Lindsay Lohan is settling into prison after surrendering herself to the Los Angeles courts system yesterday. Earlier this month, the former child star was sentenced to 90 days in prison for violating the probation terms of a 2007 conviction for drug possession and driving offences and Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the sheriff's office, has told Us magazine that, since handing herself in, everything has been "going smoothly" and that Lohan "has been extremely cooperative". Whitmore added that Lohan is being kept in a private cell, "She will be kept away from general population," he explained.
Despite her 90-day sentence, provided she behaves well Lohan is expected to be released on 2 August, serving just 13 days, WhatWouldTylerDurdenDo.com reports. "Non-violent offenders typically serve 25 percent of their sentence," they write. "So Lindsay's 90 days was expected to be 22." However, Lohan's projected release date is 2 August, according to her booking document. "I don't know exactly how long the jail will keep her," Judge Marsha Revel remarked previously. "I can only impose the sentence." Officials had previously predicted Lohan's sentence would be just three weeks due to the strain on prison accommodation.
