Lindsay Lohan who was taken into custody yesterday after a court hearing and was denied bail. But today she was granted bail.
Looks like L.A. County Superior Court Judge Patricia M. Schnegg came to Lindsay Lohan’s rescue and said she can leave jail and avoid 30 days in the can if she she posts $300,000 bail. She is also expected to be back on SCRAM bracelet. This is the third time she is going to get it.
Yesterday, Beverly Hills Judge Eldon Fox had ordered Lohan jailed without bail until an Oct. 22 hearing on whether she should be incarcerated for drug use. Judge Eldon Fox was clearly not impressed with Lindsay Lohan progress and her recent failed drug test for cocaine made matters worse.
Lindsay Lohan is expected to agree with the bail terms and go ahead.
Lohan lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley said outside court she believed Fox’s ruling was legally incorrect because it involved a probation violation for a misdemeanor conviction.
“The case law is clear,” Chapman Holley said. “She is entitled to bail.”
Lohan has twice been sentenced to jail time, but both times she got out early because of overcrowding in the county’s women’s jail in Lynwood.
