Lindsay Lohan Sentenced to Jail- the best thing to ever happen to her?

So the verdict is in, as of July 20th Lindsay Lohan will begin her 90 day jail sentence.  Although she had a criminal lawyer by her side, Lindsay Lohan’s defense just didn’t cut it for the judge.

Her criminal defense attorney told the judge that she didn’t think Lohan has been given special treatment, and that they are overlooking what good she has done.  She proceeded to say, that it doesn’t matter why Lindsay started to change her actions, whether it be because she needed to clean up her act because her probation was revoked or for other reasons, the fact is she cleaned up her act.

I am no criminal lawyer, but that to me is a decently ridiculous argument.  In serious situations like this, the logic behind why someone started to clean up their act matters just as much as,  if not more than realizing that you have a problem.  If someone changes their actions just to clear up their record for a probation, than that means that they don’t understand the harm they are doing to their life.  So chances of a relapse or not living a fulfilling live are pretty great.

Lohan’s defense summed it up by telling the judge that she is “generally” in compliance with the program she was dealt having, missed 7 weeks of a 27 week period.  She continued to defend her saying that she thinks Lindsay Lohan complied with a strict program to the best of her ability while still juggling her life and career.

After all was said and done, Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in Jail followed by an additional 90 days at in-patient rehab.  Although she must be terrified or shook up by the judgment, this is one of those things that could be the best thing that ever happened to her if she lets it be.  Sometimes people need extreme situations to make them stand back take a look, re-evaluate and re-gather themselves to make something of their lives.  Hopefully she can see this as a blessing in disguise and use it as time to really get grounded.
