I almost hate to do a report on celebrity drama but in this case I have to. Lindsay Lohan seems to be spending more time in court, these days, than on the set of films.
I’m betting that, in 10 years or so, we’ll be seeing Lindsay on an episode of “Where are they now”, laying in a gutter somewhere, covered in a mixture of feces, vomit and cat litter with an empty bottle of Night Train and half a dozen reclaimed cigarette butts next to her. For now, though, we get to sit back and watch the roller coaster that is her life.
Ms. Lohan earlier today pleaded not guilty, through her attorney, to felony theft…a charge stemming from allegations that she light-fingered a $2500 in January from a store in Venice Beach.
Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz warned Lohan that she’s in a different situation now that felony charges have been filed against her and commented that “Everybody else has to follow the law. You’re no different than anyone else. So please, don’t push your luck.”.
While Lindsay could spend up to 3 years in state prison if she is convicted I, for one, am more than a little flabbergasted that she’s not in prison already. I’ve known of people that have spent a month in jail for 1 DUI conviction and 4 years for a single drug possession charge, let alone numerous probation violations with new cases attached.
It boggles my mind that the likes of Lohan, Hilton and others of their ilk manage to stay out of prison based, in my opinion, solely on the fact that they are famous.
Didn’t we learn our lesson with O.J.?
