Linday Lohan went to LA County jail on Thursday to serve time for her seven misdemeanor counts relating to two drunken driving charges. Because of a plea agreement that she made in August, Lindsay was sentenced to serve one day in jail.
The 21-year-old Lindsay checked in at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California at 10:30 AM. Just 84 minutes later, at 11:54 AM, she was released because the overcrowded LA jail system allows early release for non-violent offenders to make room for the hard core offenders–like Paris Hilton, who had to spend 23 days in the slammer earlier this year.
According to People magazine, a prison spokesperson said, “Lindsay was fingerprinted, photographed, and put in a holding cell, but was let go due to our early release policy.”
Was Lindsay given special treatment? “Absolutely not,” said spokesperson Steve Whitmore. “This is what we do for mostly everybody in this position. In fact, 30 to 50 women are granted early releases from the facility every day.”

Now Lindsay can return to the more important things in life that she is so good at, like partying.
