Lindsay gets 1 day in jail

Lindsay Lohan will not stand trial for DUI. The rehabbing actress struck a deal by pleading no contest to two counts of DUI. By law, Lohan is considered a second offender (with two DUIs) and must serve a minimum of four days in jail. Lohan also pleaded no contest to two counts of being under the influence of a controlled substance (two separate incidents) and reckless driving - all misdemeanors. This afternoon a judge ordered Lohan to serve 36 months probation and to attend an alcohol education program for 18 months for the first DUI. As for the controlled substance plea, Lohan was ordered not to use controlled substances and required to enroll in a drug program. She's also required to stay for an unspecified amount of time at the Utah facility where she's currently in rehab. As for the second DUI plea, Lohan was ordered to serve four days or 96 hours in jail, but the sentence was reduced to only 48 hours by the end of this afternoon's hearing. The judge then gave her credit for one day in jail for time already served on the day of her arrest. Lohan must serve the remaining 24 hours by January 18, by which time she must show that she's successfully completed rehab. The actress was also sentenced to 10 days of community service and ordered "not to associate with people with controlled substances." Jail is the new black!
