Lindsay Lohan's Jail Stint: 2 Weeks, Prescription Drugs Included

Lindsay Lohan may be behind bars, but according to reports, she's not without the comforts of home.

According to, Lohan will be allowed to take prescription medications in jail, including the attention deficit disorder drug Adderall. A probation report released earlier this month revealed that Lohan had a valid prescription for Adderall.

While the law may allow her to pop pills, her estranged father, Michael Lohan, isn't pleased.

"She's got to get off prescription drugs," he said on CNN's "Larry King Live" Tuesday night. "I don't think jail is going to change her; I think she needs to change herself."

Lohan began her jail sentence Tuesday at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, California. Though she was sentenced to 90 days of jail and 90 days of in-patient rehab for violating her 2007 probation July 6, her stint in the slammer could be as short as 13 days.

On Tuesday, L.A. County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told the Los Angeles Times that because of good behavior, Lohan only needs to serve 51 days in jail. Whitmore noted that female, nonviolent prisoners do about 25 percent of their sentence because L.A. jails suffer from overcrowding, which brings Lohan's total time down to 13 or 14 days.

Ten minutes late, clad in sunglasses that couldn't hide a steely glare, Lohan marched past a throng of photographers and glitter-throwing fans Tuesday for a preprison court hearing.

She sat through a brief courtroom discussion before Revel ordered that all cameras be shut off for Lohan's handcuffing. The actress stood, placed her hands behind her back, and let two deputies cuff her and lead her out of the courtroom without making a scene.

Not so for her estranged father. Michael Lohan shouted, "We love you, Lindsay," as she was escorted out. Lohan's mother, Dina, and younger sister, Ali, also watched as she was taken into custody.

From the courtroom, Lohan went to a courthouse holding facility before shipping off to the Lynwood facility. Before leaving the courthouse, she swapped out her jeans, sleeveless top, cropped jacket and corset belt for her new, albeit temporary, wardrobe: an orange jail jumpsuit.

Shawn Chapman Holley, who resigned as Lohan's lawyer after her July 6 sentencing, represented the actress at the hearing. She addressed reporters afterwards, saying that she stepped back into the Lohan case when the actress decided she did not want famed O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Shapiro to represent her.

"She's stepped up, she's accepted responsibility," Holley said about Lohan. "She's scared as anyone would be, but she's as resolute and she's doing it."

Lohan's surrender came two weeks after her tearful sentencing hearing, in which she sobbed as Judge Revel handed down her sentence.

Lohan will serve her time at the same facility that housed Paris Hilton in 2007 and will be segregated from the general jail population.

At a news conference outside the Lynwood facility Tuesday, Whitmore said Lohan "has been extremely cooperative" so far.

"As with any inmate, Lohan was treated just like any other," he added, noting that most inmates don't draw throngs of paparazzi. "Inside it's business as usual."
