Lindsay Lohan reportedly has a television in her jail cell – perhaps she wants to see how entertainment news will survive without her.
Debra Sickels – a recently released prisoner in contact with other inmates at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California, where Lindsay is serving time – claims the troubled actress is receiving special treatment.
“The girls said they cleaned a special room for Lindsay,” she shared. “It had a regular hospital bed, a TV and a dresser for her new clothes and socks.”
And Debra revealed that “some inmates were getting p**sy over it.”
It has also been claimed that Lindsay is paying out for even more perks such as special food, new clothes, a female guard and private phone access, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has denied the actress is being treated differently to other inmates. But is any of this really that surprising?
A spokesman for the Sheriff’s Department said: “She’s being treated like any other inmate in her classification. There’s no special treatment at all.”
Linsday – who was sentenced to 90 days incarceration for breaching the terms of probation set for her 2007 driving under the influence (DUI) conviction – is already facing criticism after her family was allowed to visit her outside of official visiting hours.
Visitors are usually only accepted on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
However, it is believed the decision for her to have the private meeting was for safety reasons.
Law enforcement officials said: “Lindsay might get visitors after the official visiting hours are over for the other inmates for security reasons. It’s for the safety of everyone.”
