Sorry, Lindsay! A Lawyer Says There Is Slim To No Chance Of You Getting Out Early This Time!

Judge Elden Fox is holding Lindsay Lohan in custody without bail for 28 days…and LA-based criminal attorney Steve Cron tell us she’s going to serve every single day of her sentence!

Lindsay Lohan has a history of weaseling her way out of jail and rehab sentences early, but she won’t be getting off so easily on her most recent trip to the slammer. Judge Elden Fox is currently holding the 24-year-old actress in custody without bail until her Oct. 22 sentencing — and leading LA-based criminal lawyer Steve Cron tells HollywoodLife.com that Lilo doesn’t have a prayer of being released before then!

“The case is calendared for Oct. 22,” Cron says. “There is nothing that could come up in the next four weeks that would change that. I can’t foresee any reason why that would change.”

Cron — who correctly predicted the outcome of today’s courtroom drama — thinks Judge Fox will NOT put Lindsay back in jail after her custody.

“I think he will release her once she gets back to court, continue her on probation and order some type of substance abuse treatment or monitoring, whether it’s AA meetings or back into a rehab facility,” he says. “There will be something to help her curtail the use of drugs, but these 28 days in jail should be adequate.”

If Lindsay fails to abide by her probation rules again, Cron thinks Judge Fox will not hesitate to put her back in jail for a much longer time.

“There’s going to be another stern warning,” Cron explains. “Judge Fox will say something to the extent of, ‘If you test dirty again, we’ll go through all of this again. You either stop using, or this is what is going to keep happening.’”

Do YOU think Lindsay deserved 28 days in jail?

YES!!!! FINALLY!!! SHE GETS WHATS SHE DESERVES!!!!! im sorry every sentence she has gotten she never did because she got “Special Treatment” cause she is famous, screw that. she should get another 90 days mandatory once she goes to the violation hearing. any joe shmoe would get 90 days mandatory for violating as many times as lindsay has, heck normal people with be getting 6 months at this point because of all the times she ahs screwed up. i got 6 months for my first violation. she deserves this, she should be treated just like anyone else. movies stars should not be given any special treatment. also she should be in general population with all the normal people. there putting her in protective custody, the same places the put the child molesters and rapests. shes no one special why should she get special treatment. and from now on her probation and rehabs and treatment center should treat her like anyone else, she messes up she gets punished, must do the full sentence no early releases anymore. if we would have to do it then she should to.

a month are you for real!!! she should have at least bitten the bullet= a year
she has been given more than enough chances to prove herself. and
time again has failed. i mean really people do we need to wait for the act of vehicular manslaughter to be committed for this spoiled brat to learn her lesson.
for an innocent person or the family of the victim to suffer for the rest of their lives for this idiot to finally understand!!! !!!

eduardo, i don’t disagree with you in theory, but you don’t understand that the legal system has to operate under very strict procedures. she was not SENTENCED to a month, she’s merely being held without bail until her sentencing hearing. she has not in fact been sentenced yet, something the judge no doubt did to insure that she’d be guaranteed incarceration for the full 28 days. as soon as she’s sentenced by the judge, in 28 days on 10/22, if she goes to jail, it’s all out of the judge’s hands and the sheriff’s department can release her whenever they see fit, more or less, because of the overcrowding issues. in any case, your point is accurate though- because even when she’s sentenced, it’s not going to be for 30 days. people are predicting he will not sentence her to any additional jail time above this 28 days. but, you’re right, that a year in lock down either in jail or rehab would be the best thing for the safety of the people around her, and herself.

It’s about time! Lindsay Lohan has been giving the justice system the finger for the last three years. Kudos to Judge Revel!

sorry foreva! i know you have been against her incarceration all along… but, look at it this way, at least she’ll be clean, safe, and out of trouble for a month. don’t you think that lindsay needed to be taught a lesson at least? even if you don’t think she’s a substance abuser (i think she is, but no need to argue), she has blatantly flouted every law and judicial order placed before her. doesn’t she at the very least need to be taught that she has to play by the same rules as everyone else?

this is incredible. i only wish that judge revel could’ve been around to do this b/c she did all the non-rewarding groundwork that got it to this point where judge fox gets to look like he’s the only capable one. revel deserves the credit here, too. in any case, kudos to judge fox for using the oportunity in front of him to put lindsay in the only place she will stay clean for awhile. a month in jail is a long time. let’s cross our fingers for her that this actually has some positive effect on her behavior in the future.
