Lindsay Lohan’s 90-day jail sentence seems intense, but a lawyer who knows the judge personally tells HollywoodLife.com the starlet wasn’t treated unfairly
Although Lindsay Lohan sobbed like she lost a loved one when Judge Marsha Revel sentenced her to 90 days in jail, in addition to 90 days in rehab July 6, Los Angeles-based criminal lawyer Steve Cron assured HollywoodLife.com the 24-year-old starlet wasn’t given a harsher treatment just because she’s a celebrity.
“I personally have known [Judge Marsha Revel] and she’s a very tough judge. [In Lindsay], she sees somebody who has repeatedly flaunted the orders of the court and has multiple parole violations; I think she thought it was the proper sentence,” Cron — who’s defended many celebrity clients — said.
“Lindsay is not getting a better deal than anybody else. The jails in LA are really overcrowded. The general rule is that people are getting 25-50% of their sentencing. Needless to say, that is still a bitter pill for Lindsay Lohan to swallow.”
A bitter pill indeed. Not only does Lindsay have to report for her 90 day jail time July 20 at 8:30 a.m., the former Mean Girl is required to continue wearing her alcohol-monitoring SCRAM bracelet in the meantime. After completing jail time, Lilo will head to a state-monitored rehab facility for another three months.
As Steve Cron aptly put it, “No matter how much or how little time Lindsay serves, this won’t be a walk in the park. “
