Lindsay Lohan: Placed Under House Arrest!

by at . Comments

Lindsay Lohan began serving her jail sentence this morning - at her Venice, Calif., townhouse - after turning herself in to the Lynwood Jail hours earlier.

"She is now confined to the interior premises of her home at all times," L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said after her 5:02 a.m surrender.

She showed up to begin her 120-day sentence, but it was determined that, as a non-violent offender, the actress was eligible for home confinement.

Locked Up (At Home)!

One day, LiLo may appear somewhere other than court or jail. But not today.

She was fitted with an electronic ankle monitor and released. No new celebrity mug shots today or Lindsay Lohan photos for the forseeable future!

Despite being handed four months in jail after she pleaded no contest to stealing a $2,500 necklace, jail overcrowding, good behavior and budgetary constraints all potentially could lessen that sentence to a matter of just a few weeks.

Whitmore declined to say whether any exceptions would allow Lohan to leave her home, but the ankle monitor will not test for blood or alcohol this time.

Given Lohan's track record, that's a relief.

Lohan also serving 480 hours of community service – mostly at a downtown women's shelter but also on janitorial duty at the L.A. County morgue.

A judge forbade the actress to attend community service while under house arrest, so it looks like she's home until the law says she can leave.

No rush, law.

Gee, serving her jail time in the comfort of her million dollar home! I feel sooo sorry for her...NOT! Bitch should serve her time in real jail like any other person should. How the hell do they expect celebs to learn from their mistakes if they get special treatment?! I recommend sending her to that tent prison in the desert in Arizona!
