Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 30 days in jail. That's a pretty stiff sentence. That's nearly half a Kardashian marriage.
LINDSAY LOHAN was back in court yesterday and the judge sentenced her to 30 days in jail for failing to complete her community service assignment at a women's shelter. Actually, Lindsay got off extremely easy because with jail overcrowding she'll likely be in and out in a few minutes. The judge gave Lindsay a week to surrender, which she has Hugh Hefner to thank for. Apparently Playboy wasn't entirely happy with Lindsay's million-dollar nudes and wants her to sit for another photo session and her lawyer explained to the judge that if Lindsay didn't pose this week, she'd be in breach of contract. The judge also told Lindsay that between now and her next court date on December 14th, she has to perform 12 days of community service at the morgue and attend four psychotherapy sessions. The judge also told Lindsay to obey morgue rules because they apparently had an issue about her Tweeting on the job. As for the rest of Lindsay's community service, she won't be going back to the women's shelter and she won't be working at the Good Shepherd homeless shelter. When a judge asked the shelter if they'd accept Lindsay as a volunteer they declined saying she was a "bad example."

A stranger approached a 22-year-old woman in Jersey City and used his best pickup line of, "What's up, girl? Let me talk to you for a minute." Needless to say, the woman ignored the dude, who followed up with: "Come on girl, don't be like that. I'm from around here. Let's talk." Unfortunately the guy didn't steal her heart, but he did get angry after being shot down and stole her $500 cell phone.
