Lohan To Serve One Day In Jail

LATEST: Troubled actress LINDSAY LOHAN will serve one day in jail and perform 10 days of community service after pleading guilty to two of the seven misdemeanour charges against her. The Mean Girls star had been charged with driving under the influence and being under the influence of cocaine in relation to two drink-driving arrests in Beverly Hills, California and nearby Santa Monica in May and July of this year (07). Police allegedly found cocaine in the star's possession on both occasions, although officials say the amount of the drug was below the 0.05 grams required for a felony offence. Under the terms of plea agreement, reached at a hearing in Beverly Hills on Thursday (23Aug07), Lohan must now serve a 24-hour jail term, after the judge cut a mandatory four-day jail sentence in half and ordered her to carry out 10 days of community service. A further day was then taken off the sentence because of time Lohan has already served during her arrests. The 21-year-old, who is currently seeking treatment in a Utah rehab clinic and didn't attend the hearing, has issued the following statement: "It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs. "Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case. "No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself. I thank God I did not injure others. I easily could have. "I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so. I am taking these steps to improve my life. "Luckily, I am not alone in my daily struggle and I know that people like me have succeeded. Maybe with time it will become easier. I hope so."
