Troubled actress LINDSAY LOHAN’s parents have spoken of their “sadness” after the star was ordered to serve one day in jail for drink-driving.
The Mean Girls star will also perform 10 days of community service after pleading guilty to two of the seven misdemeanour charges against her.
Lohan had been charged with driving under the influence and being under the influence of cocaine in relation to two drink-driving arrests in Beverly Hills, California and nearby Santa Monica in May and July of this year (07).
Lohan’s mother Dina has branded the sentence “sad”, adding, “Something bad is going to happen, I’m afraid.”
Her ex-husband Michael – who has served time in jail himself – says his daughter was “a victim of her own celebrity”.
He says, “She is a little girl who has been used by everybody around her because of her celebrity and that’s what’s landed her where she is. Now, she needs a helping hand, not a sentence.
“I’m against it. Jail would probably harm Lindsay more than help her.”
Lohan must now serve a 24-hour jail term, after the judge cut a mandatory four-day jail sentence in half and ordered her to carry out 10 days of community service.
A further day was taken off the sentence because of time Lohan has already served during her arrests. (LJ/WNWE/SH)
