Locked Up: 10 Celebrities Who Have Spent The Most Time In Prison

When we think of celebrities in jail, who do we think of? Lindsay LohanAmanda BynesParis Hilton and other celebrities being tried for DUIs (driving under the influence)? For most celebrities, such a charge is easy to brush under the rug. Take Paris Hilton for example, who was sentenced to 45 days in prison back in 2007 for violating her probation. After 23 days, the heiress was released on “good behaviour”.  Macaulay Culkin  had been detained for possession of marijuana and two controlled substances back in 2004, although he bailed himself out of jail after a couple of hours and for the fine of $540. He also received three suspended one-year prison terms, which was also enough for him to avoid being taken in by the police again. Amanda Bynes has been ticketed and detained in police custody for DUI-related offences and got out of most of the charges through financial settlements, probation and finally, psychiatric evaluation and commitment.

Those arrests were mainly for drug and alcohol-related offences. In the fantasy world of Hollywood, being apologetic and having enough money can be enough to insure that you can, at least, go home that night, in spite of the possibility of a trial. A trial for a famous celebrity like Hilton, Culkin or Bynes means probation, suspended sentences or psychiatric commitment, which is pretty minor in the grand scheme of things.

Although even famous Hollywood celebrities have skeletons in their closet that they can’t just walk away from after apologizing and paying a fine. These crimes have landed them in prison for sentences that span years, and even take away the possibility of bail or parole. Although what about the more serious crimes? Ones that involve drug trafficking or murder? What happens to celebrities then? Is money, fame and good behaviour enough to help reduce their sentences?

Our focus in this list is on the celebrities who have spent more than a month in prison, ranked from the least amount of time spent in jail to the most amount of time spent in jail.

10. Tim Allen: Served 2 years and 4 months in prison

Tim Allen

Before his success as Tim Taylor on Home Improvement, Jason Nesmith in Galaxy Quest and Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story trilogy, Tim Allen was a struggling comedian who resorted to less than reputable means to pay the bills. By that, we mean that he was arrested in Kalamazoo, Michigan for drug trafficking (possession of 1.4lb of cocaine) in 1978. He was sentenced for 3 to 7 years because he pled guilty and cooperated with the officials by giving up names of other dealers, but was paroled early after 2 years and 4 months in a Minnesotan correctional facility. Since then, he’s only had a year’s probation for a DUI in 1997. Otherwise, he’s known to behave as a model citizen.
