While Lindsay Lohan’s legal team does their best to slash the Mean Girls star's time in jail, one woman knows exactly what mom Dina Lohan is going through — Kathy Hilton.
Kathy Hilton's daughter Paris Hilton was locked up in the Lynwood Correctional Facility — the same jail as Lindsay — for 23 days in 2007 after she violated her probation on a reckless driving conviction.
“I have sympathy for Dina Lohan right now, in fact, I feel bad for any parent whose child is in jail, it can be really tough," Kathy tells Radar Online.
"Those days when Paris was in jail were some of the most difficult of my life — it is hard for any parent to deal with.
“Unfortunately, if you do not follow the rules then this is what can happen — it’s part of the rules of our society.
“I think Lindsay will learn from this experience though. To be in a small cage like that by yourself certainly gives you time to think about things.
“And for the parent on the outside it is very hard too.”
Paris was originally sentenced to 45 days for her offense while Lindsay was given 90 days by Judge Marsha Revel for violating the terms of her probation, although she is only expected to serve 14 days.
