Should Lohan share a Hilton cell? Seriously....

Wi_maxim_lohan_070517_msOthers will always cover celebrity sentencing much more fully than I ever will (such as this site).  Still, I cannot help using the news of Lindsay Lohan's latest serious troubles to wonder here whether she might get (Paris) Hilton accommodations.

Seriously, many persons surely develop perceptions of the criminal justice system based on the treatment afforded to repeat-offender celebrities like Robert Downey and Snoop Dogg and Hilton and Lohan.  When these stars repeatedly violate serious laws and suffer few serious consequences, it is no surprise that polls still show that, despite severe sentencing laws, the public often asserting that sentencing judges are generally too lenient.
