Lindsay Lohan’s prison sentence has been reduced from 90 to 12 to 10 days — and now her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, says they are fighting to reduce it even more!

Lindsay Lohan has been having a tough time in prison, but according to her lawyer, her hardships are almost over: the hard-partying starlet might be released from the slammer even earlier than expected!

“[The hardest part about being in prison is] she obviously wants to see her family. It’s hard for her not to see her family,” Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, told exclusively July 26 outside the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif.

Lindsay‘s attorney – her first visitor since ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson on July 22 (she wasn’t allowed visitors over the weekend, having used up her weekly allotment during the week) said that the 24-year-old actress is doing “good” and that they’re hopefully she’ll be released earlier than July 30, as now anticipated.

“We don’t know [when she’ll be let out] yet, we hope to know something later today,” Chapman Holley said, adding when asked if Lilo would be discharged even earlier this week, “Hope so! My fingers are crossed [and] so are hers!”

Unfortunately for Lindsay, the Sheriff’s Dept. says it has no plans to decrease Lindsay’s time in jail more than it already has.

“Nothing has changed,” Sheriff’s Dept. spokesperson Steve Whitmore told “Lindsay is still scheduled to serve the same amount of time. It hasn’t been decreased.”

Leaving the jail about an hour and a half after she had arrived,  Chapman Holley denied that Lindsay has been crying in her jail cell at night, saying, “She’s fine [and that is] not true.” She also dismissed the rumors that Lindsay was being teased for her sexual preferences, as well as reports that she has bruises on her arms.

Lindsay started her jail sentence on July 20; although she’s currently meant to serve a paltry 10 days, she was initially slated to spend three months in the slammer.
