If recently convicted star Lindsay Lohan shows signs of good behaviour during her stint in jail, her sentence will be greatly reduced.
A spokesman for the L.A. Sheriff's office stated that it's likely that the 'Mean Girls' star will serve only 14 days of her 90-day sentence.
L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told PEOPLE: "She is scheduled to be released on either Aug. 1 or 2 for overcrowding issues and good behavior."
It's the long-standing policy of the L.A. County jail system to release nonviolent misdemeanor offenders early due to the severe overcrowding of the prison system in the state.
The 24-year-old actress/model is serving her time alone in a 12-by-8 cell for violating probation in her DUI case.
Shawn Chapman Holley, who resigned as Lohan's lawyer after her July 6 sentencing, represented the actress at the hearing.
She has since returned to the case when the starlet decided she did not want famed O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Shapiro to represent her.
"She's stepped up, she's accepted responsibility," Holley said about Lohan's sentencing. "She's scared as anyone would be, but she's as resolute and she's doing it."
