Lindsay Lohan checked into jail last night and was released early this morning. A 30-day sentence cut down to less than five hours - way to go, justice system!

The train wreck stealthily checked into the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., last night at 8:48 p.m. PST to begin serving her sentence.

She was released at approximately 1:30 a.m. this morning. Brutal!

While Judge Stephanie Sautner recently handed down what looked to be a real punishment for her repeated probation-violating ways, LiLo has done it again.

She can thank jail overcrowding. Misdemeanor, non-violent criminals sentenced to 90 days or less are often sprung almost immediately in the Los Angeles area.

With nowhere for them to go, the system has no choice but to prioritize, allowing riffraff like Lohan - who could use a good month or two in a cell - to skate.

So it goes. Lohan does face 270 days in jail if she screws up the terms of her probation again, although she'd likely find some way to weasel out of that too.

What a joke.

Troubled star Lindsay Lohan will be calling a jail cell home for a bit.

Appearing in court today to face the wrath of Judge Stephanie Sautner, she was sentenced to 30 days behind bars for repeatedly violating her probation.

Hoping for mercy, Lohan admitted she violated probation by not attending therapy and getting kicked out of community service at the Downtown Women's Center.

The judge was unmoved, so off to jail the train wreck goes ... again.

Lindsay Lohan will trade in this polka dot dress for an orange jumpsuit.

Sautner has her on a tight leash to ensure she completes that probation, too - all of her community service must now be done at the L.A. County Morgue.

She must put in more than 30 full days at the morgue between now and March, or else she'll pay. As the judge put it, Lindsay holds the keys to a jail cell.

Lindsay must adhere to a tight structure or have a warrant put out for her arrest. If that happens, she'll be serving AN ADDITIONAL 270 DAYS in jail.

As for the 30 days Lindsay got today, Sautner made it clear that there will be none of the house arrest nonsense we saw however. There will be a cell.

The Sheriff's Dept. says due to overcrowding, she may be let out after serving as little as 20 percent of that sentence, but that's still six days minimum.

LiLo, who was also told to quit tweeting about life at the morgue, walked out of court saying, "Thank God," under her breath. It could be a lot worse.

What do you think of Lindsay Lohan's punishment?

Lindsay Lohan was handcuffed and led off to a jail cell today after a judge revoked her probation. She'll be free on bail shortly, pending a Nov. 2 hearing.

On that date, Judge Stephanie Sautner will determine how much - if any - time behind bars the train wreck will serve for her repeated probation violations.

Sautner Lohan is completely responsible for being thrown out of the Downtown Women's Center, where the judge told her she had to complete probation.

The last straw for Sautner came when LiLo's probation report quoted her as saying she didn't community service "fulfilling." That's when this happened ...

Lindsay Lohan Handcuffed

Lindsay got kicked out of the Women's Center after no-showing nine times, and Sautner also doubted Lohan has been seeing her psychiatrist as required.

The judge dismissed Shawn Holley's argument that Lohan had to leave town to work, and that's why she missed a number of community service dates.

Sautner recalled all the screw ups Lindsay has had in her court cases, reminding Holley that compared to being in jail right now, "Probation is a Gift."

Before Lindsay was taken away in cuffs today, the judge said she must complete 16 hours at the morgue before the Wednesday, November 2 hearing.

Lindsay could get nearly a year and a half in jail then, though Sautner said that's unlikely do to overcrowding. Still, this judge is not playing around.

What do you think? Should Lohan do hard time?

Looks like Lindsay Lohan's teeth aren't the only thing about her that's stained ... her reputation has been as well, given that this idiot was kicked out of her mandatory community service program for violating the rules numerous times.

A judge ordered Lohan to serve 360 hours at L.A.'s Downtown Women's Center, and to be reliable, professional, and work at least four hours at a time.

Sources say Lindsay blew off NINE visits, however, and when she did show up, she would often bail after working there for only an hour. What a moron.

Lohan: What a Freakin' Mess

As a result, Lohan was terminated from the Women's Center because of the violations and was assigned instead to a community service program at the Red Cross. 

No word on how that's gonna go over with Judge Stephanie Sautner.

That's not even the end of her issues, either. To make matters worse, Lohan has violated the judge's order by not seeing a psychologist at least once a week.

Sautner made it clear to Lindsay that she must see the shrink every week, and that work is not an excuse for failing to comply with the terms of probation.

Lohan has been missing appointmenes, and citing work commitments. Sautner has said that if Lindsay violates any court order, she's going to jail. Period.

To make a long story short, when she appears before Judge Sautner for her progress report next week, we foresee an orange jumpsuit in her future. Again.

What's a week without legal drama for Lindsay Lohan?

According to Elite Transportation Limo and Security Services, the alleged actress owes them quite a chunk of change. Lohan is accused of reserving limos for friends, family and herself many times in 2009, without paying of course.

We sense a theme with LiLo. The bills? About $90,000.

Lindsay Lohan Hangs Out

Lindsay Lohan: What a total boob.

Lindsay's PR rep, who's almost as busy as her lawyer, said "We haven't been served with anything, so we can't comment on a lawsuit that has not been served or seen."

Give it time. The company filed the lawsuit October 7.

Elite claims it took Lohan to airports, the Chateau Marmont Hotel, a Lakers game and drug rehab (obvi), while also providing security for her on multiple occasions.

Court documents claim Lohan's original bill was $32,515. With monthly 5 percent late charges of $58,070.79, the star's total unpaid balance is now $90,585.79.

She may not be cutting herself, but the girl has definitely cut back on expenses ... by NOT PAYING FOR ANYTHING, EVER. We're onto you, girlfriend.

Cue "misunderstanding" defense in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ...

Lindsay Lohan just cannot stay out of legal predicaments.

Her latest debacle? Getting sued by a guy who installed a stereo for her, says he got stiffed, and is ALL fired up, taking shot after shot at the star.

Stephen Clark is suing LiLo for more than $1,100, claiming she stiffed him on an installation in her Venice home while she was on house arrest.

We obviously don't know what went on, but is anyone surprised?!

The correspondence between Lindsay and Clark is ... interesting.

In the first exchange, obtained by TMZ, Clark wrote: "Hi Lindsay! Well, I sent you two invoices and several BBMs and texts. I have never heard back from you."

"I guess you just aren't going to pay for my labor or your equipment."

Lindsay Lohan is being sued. We know, huge shocker there.

This morning's plaintiff is Dawn Holland, the former Betty Ford staff member who got into a melee with LiLo last December, and whose account of what transpired that evening has been murky and ever-changing from the get-go.

According to Holland's lawsuit against Lohan, the star unleashed the fury when she tried to give Lindsay a breathalyzer test at the famous rehab center.

Lohan on the Loose

New legal drama for LiLo ... for the first time all week!

Dawn claims Lindsay Lohan was "combative and violent" when confronted after sneaking off site - allegedly to go boozing - then returning after curfew.

In the lawsuit, Holland claims Lohan grabbed her right wrist, "twisting and pulling it for 8-10 seconds," which caused her to seek medical treatment.

Holland alleges "mental, physical and nervous pain and suffering" from the attack she says Lohan committed, and is demanding $1 million. Minimum.

Lindsay Lohan tested positive for alcohol earlier this month, according to reports, and will appear in L.A. County Superior Court today to face the music.

The Probation Department reportedly wants her in jail, and will ask Judge Stephanie Sautner to yank her out of house arrest and throw her in the clink.

Guess "sentencing" her to do time in a beachfront condo didn't work out.

Lindsay Lohan With No Bra

TMZ says Lindsay was tested twice last week, with one test coming back positive for alcohol and the other negative. She tested negative for drugs on both.

One of the tests was administered after her rooftop party.

Members of the D.A.'s office, which is handling the DUI probation part of Lindsay's criminal saga, will appear today to drop the hammer on Lohan.

The L.A. City Attorney is handling Lohan's necklace theft case, which she pleaded no contest to. The "jail" time she's doing at home is for violating probation.

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.

Whatever Shawn Chapman Holley is billing Lindsay Lohan (probably close to $1,000 an hour as it is), she should ask for a raise, because she's a legal wizard.

Lindsay dodged another huge bullet today, avoiding jail in her theft case.

Moreover, she'll be off probation when she completes her community service after pleading no contest to a charge of misdemeanor theft. So effing weak.

Skin Tight Dress

Holley entered the plea this morning. Lindsay wasn't in court.

Her alleged necklace theft had already been lessened in severity after Holley proved the merchandise was not valuable enough to be considered a felony heist.

Judge Stephanie Sautner doesn't believe Lindsay's problem is substance abuse, but that her issues are more deeply rooted and she self-medicates as a result.

As a result, Sautner is not requiring LiLo undergo substance abuse counseling or serve time behind bars. She'll be required to serve 120 days for her probation violation, but she'll be able to do so at home with the ol' ankle monitor.

In reality, the 120 days will amount to 14 days due to good behavior and overcrowding (nonsensical since she's at home), but she cannot leave home. At all.

Lohan must undergo psychological counseling and attend a shoplifting alternatives class (seriously, this exists) but after that and 480 hours of community service, her probation will end, meaning she's off the hook for everything.

Tell us: Did Lindsay Lohan get off too easily?
