Sometimes celebrities aren’t the best role models. They make some pretty big mistakes and because of how famous they are everyone sees the fallout. It turns out that not all celebrities are above the law. When they mess up, they may be able to afford some really good lawyers but, if they are guilty, they usually get punished. Sometimes the judge wants to make an example of them. This week Teresa Giudice went to prison for some pretty serious crimes and it got us thinking about all of the other reality TV stars who have broken the law and were sent to jail. Here are 9 of them!
9. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan has had so many brushes with the law. In 2007, she was busted for driving under the influence twice. Both times, police found cocaine on her person. She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor cocaine use and driving under the influence that summer and was sentenced to an alcohol education program, community service, one day in jail, and was given three years probation; however, she only ended up spending 84 minutes in jail.
Unfortunately, the reality star’s legal troubles didn’t end there. In May of 2010, she found herself back in jail when a judge determined that she had broken the terms of her probation after she missed several of her alcohol education classes. Although she was sentenced to 90 days in jail, she only served 14. In September of that same year, she found herself in jail again when her probation was revoked after she failed a drug test. 2011 wasn’t much better for Lohan. She was charged with theft for stealing a necklace and was sentenced to 120 days in jail. She ended up serving the sentence under house arrest. She had to serve more jail time that year when she failed to perform her community service. Hopefully this is the end of her legal troubles!Everett Collection / Shutterstock.com
