She may be the prettiest inmate at L.A. County Jail, but Lindsay Lohan will get no special treatment when she starts a 90-day jail sentence on July 20, followed by an in-patient drug-rehab program. In fact, a Beverly Hills judge ruled on July 6 that the Mean Girls star—on probation for various drunken-driving charges—had a particular disrespect for the law. “It’s like someone who cheats, but doesn’t think it’s cheating if they don’t get caught,” said Judge Marsha Revel. Alas, Lindsay isn’t the first member of high society to run into trouble with the law—or to think she can get away with it. From Paris Hilton to Martha Stewart, a photographic history of the times when money and fame failed to earn a GET OUT OF JAIL FREE card.
