Kiefer Sutherland Jailed, Begins 48-Day Sentence

by at . Comments

Actor Kiefer Sutherland surrendered on Wednesday to begin a 48-day jail sentence for his most recent DUI arrest. His mug shot appears below.

Sutherland was processed into the jail in Glendale, Calif., a Los Angeles suburb, at 5:46 p.m., according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

"Mr. Sutherland is very polite and humble. He was very cooperative during the booking process," said jail spokesman John Balian. "He will be issued an orange jumpsuit, and will be housed alone in a cell, since he'll be considered a long-term inmate."

Kiefer Sutherland will be assigned to laundry and kitchen duty, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to the other inmates at the facility. As an inmate worker, he will be allowed the roam the jail "about 75 percent of the time."

The actor was sentenced in an L.A. courtroom earlier in the afternoon for the DUI arrest and for violating probation. The "24" star was spared from the much harsher L.A. County facility by the judge in his case.

Judge Stuart M. Rice also sentenced Sutherland to five years probation, and the actor must complete an 18-month alcohol education program and attend weekly therapy sessions for six months after he gets out of jail.

Unlike certain celebrities - Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie - who somehow get sprung after an hour or so, Sutherland is expected to serve his entire term.

"Sutherland will be serving the 48 days in the Glendale City Jail, with no early release and no good time/work time credit, so we expect that he will serve the entire 48 days in jail," a statement from the court said.
