Special treatment, indeed.
With officials having already bent the usual visitation rules for Lindsay Lohan, allowing friends and family to see her in jail on weekdays for "the safety of everyone," it now turns out that her loved ones can't participate in regular visiting hours this weekend.
Which might be good news for Lindsay, considering dad Michael Lohan had said he wanted to make the pilgrimage despite not being on the approved-visitors list.
"Inmates are allowed two half-hour visits per week [from family and friends] or one [hour-long] visit per week," L.A. County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore tells E! News. "And if any inmate has already used that, then they don't get anymore."
Those visits do not include professional visits by attorneys.
Mom Dina and sister Ali came to see her together on Wednesdsay, while Samantha Ronson dropped by yesterday. All stayed for about an hour, but presumably it takes awhile to get checked in and cleared through security, etc.
Lawyers can still come and see Lohan, as they can any other day of the week, but don't they deserve some time off as well?
And despite a new report stating that two days have been shaved from her already shortened sentence, Whitmore says he's unaware of any new release date.
