Looks Lindsay Lohan’s 30-day jail sentence is pretty much meaningless and she’ll be out of the slammer almost immediately after reporting, sources say.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, if someone receives a misdemeanor sentence of 90 days or less, they are routinely processed and then released. 

As one official, “She’ll be out without even having to change her clothes.”

How is that even possible for a repeat offender like this train wreck?!

Here’s the deal. Judge Stephanie Sautner sentenced Lohan to serve 30 days in jail, adding that the only way to shave time off the sentence is if it’s required by law.

Misdemeanor inmates often serve less than their actual sentence due to overcrowding, but it’s become SO bad, those sentenced to less than 90 days are out on the spot.

There’s a federal court order on overcrowding that “trumps everything,” and that order has been interpreted to immediately release people with short jail sentences.

She’s in trouble for violating probation for a previous, non-violent misdemeanor crime, so Lohan qualifies as someone who will be out on the street ASAP. Ridic.

According to TMZ, Lindsay will get in and out of jail pronto next week … after she’s done shooting her Playboy spread and finds the time to report for booking.

Justice is served.
