Are 7 Misdemeanors But No Felonies Letting Lindsay Get Off Too Easy?

Official charges against Lindsay Lohan were filed this morning for her two DUIs last spring. Considering the circumstances, she got off pretty light - seven misdemeanors but no felonies, which means the maximum sentence she can serve is four days in jail. Considering the large amount of trouble LL has created for herself and everyone around her, we're pretty shocked the courts weren't harder on her. What do you think - did Lindsay get off too easy?

Yeah stop throwing them in for insignificant crimes is what I said. Hey, if YOU want to foot the bill for keeping someone in jail for drugs then do it but if it were up to me I wouldn't. If we had to jail everyone who takes drugs then there'd only be a third of the population on the street! I hope you make enough money to keep the rest of them in jail! LOL. Oh and since when is harrassment punishable with jail? Try thinking in terms of how the government and jail systems run and then turn your brains on and think about it. Damn people are so naive.

I don’t care how bad the freeways are in California. We are all taught the rules of the road. If you cannot follow them then you should not have a license to drive. And if you are caught then you should be jailed. Brandy killed someone. If it wasn’t for her then that woman would be alive to be a daughter, sister, wife, and mother. But because of Brandy’s wreckless driving, that innocent woman is dead. So I agree with the other posters. Brandy is getting off easy just like the rest of them, when all of them need to be in prison. A fancy rehab center to lessen your sentence and make you seem goody goody is not acceptable to me. They ALL need to be in prison so that they can learn a lesson. They don’t need to hear other residents saying “goodnight” and then they close their personal door and go to sleep in their decorative room. What they need to hear is an armed guard yell out “Light’s Out!” He closes your cell door, and locks it shut after it slams loud as hell with an echo on them. They need a thin hard as* mattress and low grade meals just like any other criminal. And they don’t need to be in Prissy Prison…I said a real Prison Dam*it! With real hard as* criminal that have done worse on the outside and will threaten them daily on the inside. These celeberties need to be scared the right way, so that they can remember how to act the right way. If they want to act like children and / or criminals then we should treat them that way.

I actually feel bad for Paris Hilton right now. She served her sentence and has handled post-jail relatively graciously even tho she's still a vapid whore, she's at least nice to her fans. To me, what Lindsay did is far worse but I bet the civil suits that follow when everyone else involved sues her, the results will be different.

As someone said earlier, she herself said that she's a celebrity and she's not supposed to get in trouble...well, apparently in Los Angeles, where being a celebrity out trumps public safety...well then she's right!!!

WTF! She is getting off way to easy! That girl has no morals or princples. She only thinks about herself and not the lives of others. If that was anyone of us we'd be in jail for a very very good long time. It just goes to show how our legal system work in our "great " country.

No wonder she pleaded Guilty to everything. None of them do any time, anyway. Someone please teach this girl a lesson. She's been in rehab 500 times, and does the same thing over and over again. Facing real jail time would make her really think twice about getting behind the wheel intoxicated.

And since when is it insignificant to carjack, drive recklessly under the influence, harass and menace someone, and put several lives in jeopardy?

Someone said they should stop throwing people in jail for insignificant crimes?! What?! Tell that to the little boy in my child's kindergarten class that's father was KILLED by a drunk driver in January! That child cries EVERY day over what he lost. Drugs are killing so many people EVERY day. I live in a small town but the number of meth labs busts is amazing. I'm glad to know that in 2007 some people are so ignorant that they think it's ok to drive drunk.

i don't know why it seems like everyone is getting special treatment nowadays. the girl needs some jail time before she kills someone. or herself.

So, basically if you are a rich actress you get away with committing crimes? I bet she could go out and kill someone and get off!! This is such bulls*it!! I wonder who she slept with to get that kind of a sentence. What a fair and impartial justice system we have. NOT!!

Good, it's about time they stopped throwing people in jail for insignificant things like drug possession and started increasing convictions and jails terms for worse crimes like murder. Gawd, who cares if she gets on the charlie sometimes? Big deal, there's so many more worse crimes that are barely punishable because the jails are clogged up with people who were arrested for misdemeanors.

If I did the same crimes she did, I'd be in jail for the maximum. Such special treatment.

Someone mentioned Brandy in their comments. Brandy wasn't drunk or high when she was driving and it was her hitting someone who hit someone else that caused that woman's accident. Have you ever driven on the 405? When I lived in LA I would take the streets just to avoid that freeway. Paris, LL and Nicole all chose to drive under the influence. I found it interesting how the prosecutors wanted to try Brandy for manslaughter instead of just ruling it an accident but bent over backwards to let the other women off. Note that race had something to do with it - and yes I know Nicole is biracial - but a lot of people don't know that and may make assumptions based on appearance. Anyway the stench of their hypocrisy obviously has had some bearing in the DA's office. Too bad they didn't throw the book at LL. Kidnapping and carjacking as well as the drug possession and driving under the influence. It's pathetic!!

SHE STOLE A CAR. Why is that not a felony? She ran over someone's foot, chased someone down, menaced and harrassed the woman and there's NO felony charge? That's it for me.

she had coke in her car twice and she was chasing someone down. the fact that she is not being charged with some kind of felony is bs.
