Lindsay Lohan Sentenced to Jail, Out on Bail by Bedtime

Lindsay Lohan é condenado à prisão, em liberdade sob fiança por mal tempo

Face a judge in court, get sentenced to jail, file an appeal (apresentar um recurso)and bail yourself out early... all in a day’s work for actress Lindsay Lohan.

Late Friday night in Los Angeles, after no more than five hours behind bars, LiLo was liberated from her latest jail sentence. So, what was she in there for this time? (VIDEO:TMZ)

“A judge said she violated probation in connection with her necklace theft case. But the judge reduced a charge from a felony to a misdemeanor.(crime de contravenção)

In court, she denied stealing a necklace from a Venice retail store earlier this year. She walked out wearing it, without paying. Lohan says it was an honest mistake, but the store owner says she stole the jewelry worth $2,500.

Some observers call it luck. She got out of a felony charge and out of jail before bedtime. But, HLN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell calls it celebrity treatment.

“I believe in compassion, but I believe in compassion across the board. I don’t believe in selective compassion. If we’re going to start being compassionate as a society lets be compassionate to everyone, not just this gorgeous starlet(estrelinha) who goes into court with a low-cut top.( peça de vestuário tem um decote assimétrico e muitocavado sem abertura)And that’s where I draw the line."

Lohan is familiar with the arrest gig, to say the least. She’s been in similar situations four times.

But a legal analyst for ABC says Lohan got the standard treatment for cases like this.

DAN ABRAMS, LEGAL ANALYST: “Because the reality of it is, when you file a notice of appeal on something like this, the standard, ordinary course of business is that you become eligible for bail. Bail in this case was $75,000. She put it up. She’s been released, for now. That doesn’t mean she’s not going to go to jail.”

So, maybe Lohan isn’t being treated like a privileged celebrity this time around, but is she acting like one? The prosecuting attorney says yes, because the legal problems are having no impact on her behavior.

“She’s not taking this seriously. I’ve tried to impart that on four judges, and obviously, they feel a different way.”

Lohan’s next court date is in May. In the meantime, the judge wants her to start doing nearly 500 hours of community service.
