(Newser) – At least one person is somewhat happy with Lindsay Lohan’s sentence: Her estranged father, Michael. He tells Larry King in the above video he feels “a little satisfaction that she’s going to rehab,” though the jail part of the sentence is “harsh.” More from the land of La Lohan:

  • Friends think the judge should have sent LiLo to jail immediately—some tell TMZ they’re worried she will take her last two weeks of freedom and go completely off the rails.

  • Though she’ll still wear her SCRAM bracelet during those two weeks, she can still legally drug herself thanks to a Dilaudid prescription. The painkiller is stronger than morphine and has even been compared to heroin, TMZ reports.
  • Assuming all goes well, at least Lindsay will have a job waiting for her upon her release from jail. The director of Linda Lovelace biopic Inferno says they are “not moving on, not re-casting, not under any circumstances,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
