I mean no disrespect to the Lohan family or their supporters but Lindsey should be thanking her lucky stars. Going to jail is no fun for nobody. She's been sentenced to 90 days in jail for probation violation after being caught red handed with cocain...twice! and not being charged. DUI's should be the least of her worries. Do you know how many people in jail right now wish that they could have used "not my pants" as an defense for posession of cocain.


lynne welty   July 20th, 2010 8:30 pm ET

cnn should be focused on missing children not lindsey lohan!!!!!


kathy b   July 20th, 2010 9:03 pm ET

Lindsay got what she deserved. No one else would have gotten away with what she did. Rehab didnt work for her in the past. Enough is enough. Be thankful the little brat didnt kill someone all tanked up behind the wheel!


Nick   July 20th, 2010 9:07 pm ET

I, a person of "color" call for Roland Martins resignation, he now represents the appalling ignorance that this nation endures daily. The irony that is Roland Martin and the NAACP is crippling. Stop perpetuating racism, this issue is about classism.


John   July 20th, 2010 9:08 pm ET

Lindsay doesn't need rehab, doesn't need a sober living arrangement, nor an expensive beverly hills psychiatirst..Lindsay needs AA or CA, she needs meetings, a sponsor, a higher power and the companionship of other strong recovering addicts. No one is talking about this.


vic nashville tn   July 20th, 2010 9:08 pm ET

I am Lindsy Lohan fan its sad she going to jail

We have to control the money don’t let money control us


molly   July 20th, 2010 9:08 pm ET

In some ways, Lindsay Lohan reminds me of Dana Plato ("Kimberely" on Different Strokes) Lindsay is very young. Some jail time may be one of the best things to happen to her.


Vonnie Fuqua Mathiesen   July 20th, 2010 9:11 pm ET

My only child, my son Chad , was killed by a drunk driver and he only got 120 days for taking a life. People have got to learn


Mary_Lakeland   July 20th, 2010 9:12 pm ET

I love your show Mr. King, and have extreme respect for you. My one question is why is everyone wasting so much valuable air time taking about this spoiled brat, Ms. Lohan, when there are so many children and others out there missing?

Thank you for everything you do.


Delilah   July 20th, 2010 9:14 pm ET

ok seriously...who cares what lindsey lohan is eating on her first night behind bars??? the world seriously needs to get a life if this is a real story...


Vonnie Fuqua Mathiesen   July 20th, 2010 9:14 pm ET

OMG
I dont have a son...and she has to wear an orange jump suit, no extensions, no makeup and no electronic devices.

She is lucky to be in jail...and not dead herself or having killed someone else.


Stanley   July 20th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

Ah, no, Larry, not everyone's eyes are on Miss Lohan going to jail.
She is an alcoholic and will only sober up when SHE wants too.


molly   July 20th, 2010 9:19 pm ET

I think the isolation/alone time is O. K. . Many people that are not in jail live in remote areas and are away from other people for long periods of time. She will have plenty of time for self reflection. This is a good thing.


molly   July 20th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

It DOES look nice on the outside!


Connie   July 20th, 2010 9:23 pm ET

The whole Lohan family needs to do some forgiving and get help.


Mary_Lakeland   July 20th, 2010 9:24 pm ET

I am so sorry for Vonnie, the poster who lost her child to a drunk driver. This is precisely why we need to stop glamorizing this whole fiasco for Ms. Lohan, and giving her exactly what she feeds off of, attention! Not all DUI arrests are alcoholics, some are just inconsiderate and irresponsible people.

I am going to go back to looking for a show that is not giving her airtime.


Vonnie Fuqua Mathiesen   July 20th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

I have been building a park to honor my sons memory. I am building a dog park to honor my sons memory. I have established a foundation to honor my sons memory.

These rich, winy people, who have had every opportunity in life...and they blow it, they make me sick. Lindsey is responsible for herself now and Dad needs t o get a job and get out of her shadow. What do these people stand for.

Let me tell my story...read about it...Chad A Fuqua, Hollister, MO Parks and Recreation Director killed by drunk driver on August 18, 2008. City names park to honor is community presense and work. This is what the real people do. Not cry because they wont have hair extensions for a few months.

Get a grip...and honor real people once in awhile.


mike   July 20th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Michael Lohan needs to stay out of Lindsays life. He is NOT helping. She is an adult and will make her own choices.


Judy   July 20th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Here we go again. The more things change, the more they stay the same. If parents want to REALLY help their children, they will create meaningful communication, boundaries, and BE PARENTS, not party buds, or multimedia money machines "in the best interest"of the son or daughter.


Mary_Lakeland   July 20th, 2010 9:27 pm ET

One last comment is that the worst thing about this is she could certainly have afforded a driver to and from her party life, but CHOSE to ignore the law.

Good night all.


ckesling   July 20th, 2010 9:29 pm ET

@vonnie, my condolences for your loss. this is what people need to understand. does she need to kill a child first?


nina1fox   July 20th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

@ Mary_Lakeland July 20th, 2010 9:12 pm ET

Pretty judgmental of you!!! God forbid she might have a problem!!!

She is very beautiful... are you jealous?


Lisa Fennelly   July 20th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

I think Lindsay needed this wake up call but she is a 24 year old. She needs support through this not the public slamming her. Her dad seems like he has ger best interests at hand. Good for him!


Vernette   July 20th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

Lindsay is a washed up has been. She fits the image of the childhood star of the 80's that had issues-but they addressed them. Shame on the adults in her life for allowing a minor to drink and do drugs-that does not fall under positive parenting. And they sit and question why their daughter is in jail?? Hello! Look in the mirror! You can't be a positive role model for you daughter-your expectations for her should be nothing, based on your actions. The fact that CNN and all the major news shows is focusing on this is a joke! Get over the hollywood drama-or move there to be a part of it and to "fix" the fixation!


Joy   July 20th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

This is a total waste of TV time. Lohan is just another Paris Hilton publicity stunt. Oil is leaking in the Gulf, our children are being killed in a war, the economy is in shambles, career politicians are yanking everyone around -and CNN is running after a kid trying anything to be a star.


Larry   July 20th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

This whole Lindsay Lohan thing is a big pathetic joke,,,,,,she,s a spoiled attention seeking little brat who desrves more then the "easy" time she got. Heaven forbid she has to wear that humiliating orange jump suit,,and shower and sleep by herself,,,how terrible and humiliating....! Give the girl what she deserves..put her in population with the other inmates and shower in the open with the others and EAT WHAT THE OTHER INMATES EAT,,,show her what real life is about behind bars,,,maybe, just then maybe, she will open her eyes to a real world..


Ed   July 20th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

If you or I did what she did we would spend at least a year in jail...boo hoo the famous girl has to go to jail for being a criminal!


molly   July 20th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

@Mary_Lakeland, Yes, she could have afforded a driver. Some people like to drive because it gives them a false sense of control. We are not hearing much about the other addicts in Hollywood. Those individuals didn't get a dui because they were smart enough to have a driver. Their addiction continues. Hope that won't be the case for Miss Lohan. That is, getting a driver without addressing her issues.


None of Our Business   July 20th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

@ nina1fox

I agree. There are some people very judgmental on here. The young woman has problems. She needs help. Not to be judged by those sitting behind a computer.


john doe   July 20th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

LARRY, LINDSEY I WILL NOT DRAG THIS OUT HERE ON TV!!! WHEN YOU APPEAR ON LARRY KING, I WILL ASK FOR A EMAIL TO SAY THING'S TO YOU IN A PRIVATE SETTING!!! THIS JOHN DOE HAS YOUR BACK, I'M JUST A VOICE IN THE DARK!!! LINDSEY BEST OF LUCK!!! VOTE NO WAY!!! THIS IS AN AMERICAN OPINION!!! ARE WE LISTENING???


kathleen   July 20th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

Lindsay's dad should respect his daughter's wishes and back off.. between him and Lisa Bloom, it's like stalking. Between Lisa and her mother, Gloria Allred, why don't they get off the stage, it's pathetic how they jump in @ every opportunity like media you-know-what's running interference with their trite opinions. Lindsay is young, has made some mistakes and might have some issues, but the last thing she needs is the added stress of these media mongers tagging along for their umpteenth 15 minutes of fame. Sorry dad, you messed up and are now paying the price. You are doubtless one of her biggest, most glaring issues. Get off the stage.


nettie209   July 20th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

A HOUR ON LINDSAY LOHAN GOING TO JAIL! YIPPY!!!!!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS LARRY????? COMMON NOW LARRY AND WE ARE INTERESTED WHY? AND SHE'S STILL GOING TO GET HER PRESCRIPTION DRUGS WHILE INCARCERATED!!!! WHERE IS THE LESSON IN THAT! I JUST DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO THINK OF THIS WASTED AIR TIME! ...ACTUALLY IT'S BEEN MORE OF A COMEDY SHOW TONIGHT ... THANKS FOR THE LAUGH!


Beachgram   July 20th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

My heart goes out to Lindsay and her family. She obviously has a serious addiction that needs to be dealt with. She has a chemical imbalance in her brain and therefore, does not make wise decisions. She has a lot of life ahead of her and I pray she gets the help she needs because she can change her life. My younger brother commited suicide on the day he was to go to court over an alcohol issue and I grieve every day and wish I had realized his struggles. People need to understand that addictions are not something that the courts can cure. Money or no money, Lindsay is a human being just like you and I and I hope she seeks the help available to her.


RINA from Florida   July 20th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

I could not believe Lindsey friends comments that they believe she should not be in jail....and also that nobody really care about. her.. Well at least the judge did ,and this is absolutely the best thing that can ever happen to her... Now she will be able to pray and be close to God and herself.


mandy   July 20th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

i believe lins will inspire many people. Yes, she has an addiction issue, however, the great ones usually have one or two issues. besides how a person copes with the misery and drama of our current worldly situations is not for anyone to choose. just help the girl get the counsel she needs and all will be well. does she know about "suboxone"? it saved my life! almost six years clean.


Everlast   July 20th, 2010 9:48 pm ET

I keep hearing about the jails overcrowded and that she will be released early, but she is in her cell alone, where is the overcrowding factor come in? Equal justice for all American, PLEASE!


Judy Melchiorre   July 20th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

I have worked for many years with detained and incarcerated adolescents and adults, both male and female. You wear an orange jumpsuit, slippers or sneakers (no laces), no make-up, no jewelry, no internet, no TV. She is not staying in a hotel or on vacation. She needs time to think and sort out a lot of issues.
After she completes her sentence, she should go to alcohol/drug rehabilitation – a structured program, with individual and group counseling and abstinence. Upon finishing that, she will need continued support and counseling, electronic monitoring and random urine screening as well as supervised probation. She will be dealing with addiction for the rest of her life, but she can do it if she makes the commitment. Many others have led the way.


H.D. Gallow   July 20th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

My heart goes out to the parents of Lindsay. My son died last month after struggling with drugs for several years. If you have never had a child on drugs you have no idea what Lindsay's parents are going through. America needs to evaluate the 'drug/alcohol' crisis that is destroying so many lives. I encourage you, Larry King, and the CNN Cooperation to commit today to addressing this crisis. Count me in.


Heidi Berg   July 20th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

Why we so down on addicts we should be crying for them for they are crying inside for something they don't know how to deal with.I feel for anyone who is sick


Mary_Lakeland   July 20th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

You are right, I am judgemental. I lost my best friend and also my cousin years ago, in separate incidents to a drunk driver, at least one poster here lost her only child. They all got the equivalent of slaps on the wrist.

Jealous, no, I have a wonderful life with a great husband and a terrific son that I thank God for everyday. Pretty is as pretty does, and while it comes in handy, it fades, and you are left with what is inside.

I am so glad that Linsey did not get a driver, and risked people's lives so she could find out that she had a problem....are you kidding me?

I should not have come back to this.


molly   July 20th, 2010 10:00 pm ET

Wish Lindsay and her dad well.


La"Von   July 20th, 2010 10:01 pm ET

I have been following this story from the start; my thing is that if she is on any type of drug substance, jail isn't the way to correct the problem. She should have been sent to some type of rehab program. All of us out here, has/have someone in our family that has or is using some sort of drugs and we would want nothing but the best for our family member. I personally don't think that she had the right legal representative, if she did, then they (she) would have requested a rehab program, watching her lawyer on TV doesn't show that she was really fighting for her client. GIVE HER THE HELP THAT SHE NEEDS!


Shani   July 20th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

Oh Boo-Hoo!!!! Really?!?!? Seriously!?!?! We need to feel bad for Lindsay, when as us joe-smoosh's would get stuck in the pookey for a couple of d.u.i.'s, but her as the "star" shouldn't? And by the way Nick "of color" is classism really a word?


None of Our Business   July 20th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

@ Mary_Lakeland

People have all kinds of problems. I doubt if anyone on here is perfect! Its very easy to judge behind your computer. I feel sorry for you. Your anger certainly shows.


Dalton McCOy   July 20th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

Whats wrong with doing drugs? 90% of all people are on one form of drug or another, whether it be marijuana, cocaine, prescription drugs or alcohol. Yes people just because its legal alcohol is still a drug and at one time it was illegal. Its just the goverment brainwashing you to believe only alcohol is safe and thats because the govement controls it. As a casual user of marijuana I believe marijuana is safer then alcohol. Ive seen too many lives ruined by alcohol however far fewer using marijuana. Its about time we legalize it and quit lying to the american people


Mary_Lakeland   July 20th, 2010 10:07 pm ET

@Shani – I agree. Have you noticed that every star who gets caught doing something illegal or immoral becomes and addict and needs rehab? It is an apidemic.


Mary_Lakeland   July 20th, 2010 10:08 pm ET

correction: epidemic...can spell, can't type


Larry   July 20th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

I to have to come back to this,,between watching Larry King and reading the comments on here, i cannot believe what this world is coming to...it seems every time one of these "celebrities" messes up, or some parents kid does something wrong, its because they have an addiction or something of sorts..Wake up people,,these "do wrongers" chose the way they are, and chose what they do .Instead of catering to them , snap them back to reality,,,, a trip to the morgue or intensive care for a peek at the consequences may help orrrrr how bout the good old fashioned "YOU MESSED UP AND NOW ITS TIME TO PAY THE PIPER" You cant do the time...DONT DO THE CRIME


Mary_Lakeland   July 20th, 2010 10:17 pm ET

@None – You don't understand, this started as my issue is with the television networks giving this so much attention. It is just my opinion. This is airtime and attention that could be devoted to many adults and children in serious danger and missing. Apparantly this is what is selling, and I am a bit disappointed in even my favorites sometimes.

I realize no one is perfect, especially myself. Honestly, you are doing a pretty good judgement job yourself.


None of Our Business   July 20th, 2010 10:18 pm ET

A lot of angry people on here tonight! Sounds like some may need help too


None of Our Business   July 20th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

Mary_Lakeland

Celebrities also deserve to receive treatment just like the rest of us! Not to mention they live under a magnifying lens!


Mary_Lakeland   July 20th, 2010 10:23 pm ET

@None

As a mother, I would rather see the time devoted to a missing child.

Again, just my opinion.


None of Our Business   July 20th, 2010 10:25 pm ET

@ Mary_Lakeland

You, like Lindsay Lohan, have the "choice" to change your TV channel!


None of Our Business   July 20th, 2010 10:28 pm ET

If you do not like the topic, then move on! Why are you still here?


Larry   July 20th, 2010 10:39 pm ET

@ None,,,Give the woman a break,,she is just stating her opinion as others are doing,,, not hurting anybody..you, on the other hand, from what i read , would probably try defending a serial rapist,,,saying òh its just an illness or addiction,,,lets get them help.......Try walking on the other side of the street, where maybe something has happened to one of these souls on here,,,They have a right to be angered by the pathetic justice system we have


KENNY   July 20th, 2010 10:54 pm ET

NO ALCOHOL, NO CIGARETTES, NO SEX ,,,,,,,IT WILL BE ROUGH ..BUT SHE NEEDS TO LEARN..MY PRAYERS ARE W/HER..SHE JUST DID NOT HAVE A GOOD START W/HER UNSTABLE PARENTS WHO HAVE BEEN USING HER FOR YRS .....


Meg   July 21st, 2010 12:15 am ET

Lindsay Lohan is in jail where she belongs....the paprazzi, talk shows need to get a new subject to overdose on. Hopefully she'll do some reflecting & realize if she doesn't take this seriously her life is going to continue to be miserable. She's a young woman in her 20's & she looks as if she's gone through the mill. Her parents need to grow up & act like parents. Her mother enjoyed the celebrity life much too much. Once again some people should NOT be parents...this father 7 mother are 2 examples of that.


Mr. Keith Johnson   July 21st, 2010 12:27 am ET

Larry, I don't understand why her attorney didn't file to appeal her sentence or ask for a indicated sentence, that she could of done whereas when she was released, she would be totally FREE and have NO PROBATION or required Sober-Living.

The sad thing about the sentence is, the judge specifically stated NO EARLY RELEASE or Work Release, so regardless of how crowded it is, they wont let her out, because of the judge stipulations. Plus,if she was allowed early release, she Sheriffs would of let her out within 24 hrs and allowed her to pay for her work release. From personal experience, she has access to T.V. because she's in Hi-power confinement for status individuals. Its not a prison, its a simple County jail.Jail is good for someone out of control. I would rather have her do jail time then a funeral and we all know it was coming to that with all the prescription drugs death's lately with influential individuals.

One question, why if the judge ordered no pictures at the sentencing, why do the Sheriffs get to release mug shots. If you go there and ask for a inmate mugshot, they would deny you.

Jesus has turned many individual's hearts to right over and over and over. I'm not a minister, because of that jail time that settled me down to allow Him to speak to me. She was God's child before she was Michaels daughter, so she's in Gods hand and He will visit her there. I can promise you that.

God bless.


Frank   July 21st, 2010 12:31 am ET

Hi. My name is Frank and I'm an addict. The very first thing that Lindsay should do is completely submit to the fact that whatever fear she is refusing to face is self-induced. She can pick her "rock bottom" at any time she wishes and say, "I'm done." Give to her the message of recovery that has saved many from this disease for more than half a century. It works! I'm living proof.


Vick   July 21st, 2010 12:35 am ET

I'm a father who has a son who's currently 15yrs,I've taught my son to accept responsiblity for his actions. If Lindsay father wants the best for his child he needs to stress the importance of life choices. Maybe going to jail and getting rehab is what she needs to get a reality check,If she were injured by someone who was caught for a DUI and never imprisoned,her father and friends would be outraged. If she's a celebrity then she must realize other kids are closely watching her actions,including her own sister. Wish her well,am sure after this experience she won't have anything to do with the law in the future!


maryln48   July 21st, 2010 12:39 am ET

I do agree with the decision that Lindsay decides to ignore her father and that Lisa Bloom. I hate listening to her raspy voice and her stupid advise to everyone. I hope she and her mom would disappear, I wish Lindsay luck she is young and hopefully will learn from this experience.


Jason Baum   July 21st, 2010 12:41 am ET

I am watching the Larry King Show right now and I am truly appalled that Mr. King is giving an entiire hour to Lindsay Lohan. You should be ashamed of yourselves, this girl deserves everything that is happening to her. She has never once taken responsibility and that is why her lawyer withdrew from handeling her. As for her father is is a waste of energy and so his her mother. I am from a family of 7 boys and my mother raised us on her own and did a great job and here are 2 parents that have truly done a terrible job and all they want is the limelight. Her 2 so called friends from the Bravo show please give me a break, they want their 15 mins of fame. And to think that a guest makes a statement that Lindsay opens a film, please tell me what film, she has had bomb after bomb. She needs to realize that she needs to take control of her actions for once in her life instead of lying to everyone around her. I mean really she misses a court appearance while she was in Cannes and has the gaul to say that her passport was stolen, and everyone knows she LIED..After this we should turn our engergies to helping and talking about other issues that are going on in this country instead of waisting ink on Lindsay Lohan. You do the crime and she need's to do the time !!!!


Wendy Kerley   July 21st, 2010 12:45 am ET

Lindsay needs to stay in jail and learn a lesson.Martha Stewart spent more time in jail.Its just not right.


Wendy Kerley   July 21st, 2010 12:48 am ET

I also think that it is not right that her parents and so called friends are making money off of her while she is locked up.They don't need to be on tv.


Eileen Popovich   July 21st, 2010 12:48 am ET

I know exactly how you feel. My daughter went to jail then went to rehab she says it saved her life... My husband and I going through this is terrible. Join Naranon get support for you. Michael she. is sick. I am sooo sorry for you ... You will get through this. She will too.


None of Our Business   July 21st, 2010 12:53 am ET

The Jails in California are like the revolving doors at the Waldorf Hotel. Jails have become nothing more than a place to sober up. It certainly is no deterrent. Denial is like a powerful drug that flows deep within the individual. Only when the person is ready, will they make the change.


JC Seifts   July 21st, 2010 1:05 am ET

My heart goes out to Lindsay. I spent a year in federal prison for pleading guilty to a misdemeanor for a purported crime of less than $100.00. I sat the full year, and was released April 30th, 2010. I too required medication, as I required cyclical care and monitoring for cancer, and more troublesome, chronic panic attacks. When I arrived at Lewisburg, I was stripped searched, and on my second day, was choked by my "bunkie". For me, incarceration has ruined my life, and I am now shackled by the permanent scar of serving time. The financial repercussions are overwhelming. Jail sentences are handed out like candy by agenda driven prosecutors. I hope the medical care at Lindsay's prison is compassionate, and not a mirror image of the nightmare I lived.


Jeannie   July 21st, 2010 2:05 am ET

@JC Seifts

I am truly sorry to hear about your experiences with the justice system. You however, were not handled as kindly as Lohan has been. Any one of us would be facing hard-time for the crimes that she was caught doing. The system would have nailed our butts to the wall on drug charges, car jacking, DUI.... Instead she was partying in Cannes! They gave her many chances. Let her dry out and reflect a bit.

As for her mom and dad – oh, give me a break! Both love the camera and the fame their daughter brings. There has been many other cases of struggling celebrities whose family members cared very much and who did not use the celebs sickness as a business opportunity.

I also don't blame the booze or drugs for the estrangement of their daughter either. Its the other way around. If she had had a close relationship with her parents especially daddy dearest, her life would be a lot different. Instead he keeps talking to the media and humiliating her. That is not love.


pmusson   July 21st, 2010 3:33 am ET

Get over it – she has the world at her feet and she still screws up. Who should really care other than the loser parents. Will the world really miss another brat?


Jake   July 21st, 2010 3:35 am ET

It's so sad for America that CNN and Larry King are wasting assets on Lindsay Lohan, why don't they cover some real news? Sad to say, America doesn't want to hear it. They want the garbage of Reality TV& Movie Star trash.


Sunnie   July 21st, 2010 3:45 am ET

WoW! Lindsay's incarceration is a big publicity bonanza for those photogs.
The woman saying that her girl is soooo talented and focused on her work that she can't be bothered with such minor details as her passport.

Unlike the rest of us minions who are not ceative, talented and focused on our work – just us lazy hacks.

That girl is a coke-snorting, can-huffing, pill-popping, drunken slob who has a supreme sense of entitlement.

that took all of one-minute to say and sum up her life. everyone knows she needs help, but she also belongs behind bars. I'm not about to listen to their excuses when she kills a family of 5 including a pregnant women and her babies while driving drunk!
so....stop the drivel!


JOEY   July 21st, 2010 4:11 am ET

It's up to HER..does she want to change her life? yes or no?..leave her so called career..do volunteer work w/the homeless, war veterans, etc,,,,then maybe her parents will go to WORK,,do they know what that is?...they need to stop USING her money to survive....there is HOPE..but it's up to her..wish papparazzi would leave her alone,,this is not news..with 2 wars still going on,,& children in this country starving..unbelievable ! LEAVE HER ALONE MEDIA,,YOU ARE NOT HELPING HER,,SHE NEEDS TO BREATHE ON HER OWN...


Matt   July 21st, 2010 8:38 am ET

How is it that Lindsay Lohan is being released from prison early because of overcrowding, when she has a cell all to herself?


Danielle   July 21st, 2010 9:54 am ET

If I remember correctly, the Lohan's have a younger son. I hope Mr. Lohan is devoting lots of time parenting him with love and guidance in light of his sister Lindsay's actions.


gerald Jolly   July 21st, 2010 10:09 am ET

We can only hope that the authorities will treat Lindsay for her STD condition while she is incarcerated.

I believe this is why the Sherrif of the jail she went to stated that she will be kept away from the other inmates at that jail.


cynthia   July 21st, 2010 11:40 am ET

From my understanding of the issue, she pled guilty, was given a sentence, then violated parole or violated the judges ruling. Based on that interpretation, if she violated the parole or went against the judge after being sentenced, then, now she serves as a model to all other potential drug addicts. The model is simple: Follow the judges ruling or you will be accountable. That's my interpretation.

I think, in addition, the area she lives in has high crime and legislation to combat crime and drugs leads many cases of the judges where she lives. I don't think the judges want to set any new laws but come up with a law that works in her area. She lives in a large city. There's lots of crime and drug dealings. The legal system has built a system of responding to drug dealers and she falls within the category.

I wish the best for all involved in her recovery.

Re the mosque at ground zero: NEVER FORGET 911. Mosques can be built anywhere, but not ground zero. Don't insult & spit in the face of all americans, Ed Glassel

A while back I did not know who Lindsey was. Now I'm learning. Well she was a actress. They say she was a good actress. I pondered if I wanted to comment here. Thinking the same thing as the others,. She is an out of control rich spoiled celebrity, Which may be the case. And I don't like that just like the others but I have a heart. So even if I think that I got to say watching some of the coverage on Larry's show last night that at least her father cares. And he admired his mistakes. He cares for his daughter. We all would want out parents to care despite if they are divorced.

The judge had no other alternative.. I just read about the things she did with the D.U.I and the things she did at the retail outlet. I don't understand if she is a celebrity why she has to steal things. Unless someone manages her money for her and she is on an allowance.
She seems to be a teen celebrity seriously out of control. She was blessed with looks and talent. But the lawyer on Larry King last night made some good point about being alone. I am not defending for what she has done just though about it some. Sometimes the punishment may make things worst for anyone. Probably having someone she could talk to would help. Someone who would be a good role model. Probably would be someone she does not know and it could be someone appointed by the court. Remember what happened to Micheal Jackson. Drinking & Driving is wrong. The judge made the right decision. Nothing else worked. If she did nothing we would possibly be reading about some crash somewhere. I am sure the honorable judge felt compassion but she had to be the parent of the court. Best she can do is learn and accept that she must change for the better. Wishing you all the best Lindsey.
You were blessed with a talent and you were given a great gift. But that gift requires responsibility. Look to the great managers of life. People who have been married for years and manage their marriage good. Positive role Models/Motivators. problem when you go to another celebrity for that is they are in the same world. Just ordinary people. Perhaps Country folks. Bless you that you may change for the better

Mr. Keith Johnson

Your Jesus is on work release. He has released himself from this Earth so we can on get on with the business of destroying each other or ourselves. You brought your God into it also...now there is a dysfunctional family...of one or of how many, Keith? Isn't the crux of all our prescribed ills our inability to exist or co-exist amongst your God's creations? Or, are we as much of the vibrato as a butterfly fart in a hurricane wind when it comes to demanding salvation be micro-wave ready and handed to us?

SHE IS A TALENTED GIRL, JUST DID NOT HAVE THE CORRECT BEGINNING FROM THE START W/THE "KOOKY" PARENTS..WHO ARE USING HER,PUSHING HER, SHE NEEDS TO BE ALONE, MAYBE CHANGE CAREERS...

@Cajazz
I don't believe anyone speaks directly to you when they speak of Jesus, God, or whatever his/her religion might be. However, you always attack that person. Be who you are but it is disrespectful to criticize one's religious beliefs as long as it is just that and no harm is being inflicted on you or others as a result of his/her beliefs.

@Mr. Keith Johnson,
It sounds as though the experience you had similar to this young lady's has helped you so I hope your life is on a good and productive path.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 21st, 2010 6:49 pm ET

@Chere

It is just as much of a pronounced freedom of a right to, as a right not to. It is as much as a curtailment of the freedom to express free speech and belief's, as it is to be united and yet, muted by one's ideologies. To talk in open forum of your belief's is a freedom, any direction you wish you take or travel in, all simultaneously if you wish. But, to express publicly your belief and devoutness to others and not be opposed by a dissimilar voice is acrimonious to some. So I am offended by your distilled 'spirits' of no voice of dissent...sober up and understand we all have a voice...and opinions.. and differences...I will gladly show you mine..if...you can understand what you read of mine...Where is it written that I have to remain silent when someone manufactures or imagines a cure-all of invisibility to feed everyone his pone recipe...I am starving for mankind to grow a spine and do a reality check and find where his ills and cures are found....and how he can remedy them into a real concoction of sobriety...Again, I missed it..who was Mr. Keith Johnson talking to from the ends of his fingertips? I suppose I should skip the part where he became translucent to all of us...and was in deep consultation with himself..lol

@Chere

If the leader of your perceived faith and belief system was running for the same political post, say Congressman or Senator, in all 50 states would you vote for him based on his free will or his canned ideologies?


Cajazz76:24:8   July 21st, 2010 7:03 pm ET

@Chere

If the pen is mightier than the sword, why are we spending trillions of dollars to fight a war of ideologies....the definition of terrorism? Or will you take the right-wing approach with bombs and guns hot?

I think she is a lucky person for not having an accident and possibly killing someone. If you want to dance, you should have to pay the fiddler. Do your time and quit being a baby

I think the judge should have sent her to a live in treatment center first and then had her do her jail time after. She also should have instructed the sheriff's department to make her do at least half of her time. What she is getting is a tiny slap on the wrist.
Too bad little spoiled one.

I think her father is doing everything he can to get his daughter on a path to healthy living. He knows he wasn't present in the past but he is there now. Her mother Dina is a poster child on how not to parent. Those kids are smart and I'm sure they step up the pressure to get what they want and she caves in so these kids can justify to themselves that the adult in their life approves. Lindsay is a talented young woman and it is possible for her to come back from this chaos. If Robert Downey Jr can do it, it can be done. Hopefully this will be enough of a wake up call.


HOLLYROCK   July 26th, 2010 12:22 am ET

DEAR LINDSAY, SOME OF LIFE'S GREATEST BLESSINGS CAN FEEL LIKE A NIGHTMARE, BUT TRY TO HANG IN THERE LONG ENOUGH TO FIND OUT WHAT THE PURPOSE OF IT ALL IS, KNOWING THAT THEY ARE NEVER DESIGNED TO HURT YOU BUT TO HELP YOU. AND PERHAPS IN WAYS THAT YOU HAVE'NT BEEN ABLE TO HELP YOURSELF. DON'T GIVE UP LINDSAY, YOUR BEST IS YET TO COME. LOVE, HOLLYROCK
