Any news of if Keifer is serving his time during the strike, rather than the end of December after filiming was supposed to fininH?
post #1956 of 2010
FYI - Read in the Washington Post or LA Times that Fox may "blink" and broadcast the 8 completed episodes in the Spring, the rest in the Fall, assuming the strike ends in time. (Same with Lost.) Makes sense - otherwise they literally lose the entire season.

Well . . . I guess Kiefer Sutherland can go ahead and serve the full jail sentence. 24 has been axed. (Indefinitely postponed, actually). Maybe next year? That is IF Sutherland can keep out of jail.

Kiefer Clocks in to Jail

Now that 24 is on hiatus, Kiefer Sutherland is apparently anxious to get this show on the road.

Barely two hours after being formally sentenced to 48 days in jail in connection with his September arrest for driving under the influence, the Emmy winner reported to Glendale City Jail to start serving his time, E! Online has confirmed.

Records show that the 40-year-old actor arrived at 5:30 p.m. and 16 minutes later he was in a holding cell waiting to be photographed and fingerprinted.
Prisoner 1085109 was then issued an orange jumpsuit and assigned to one of the jail's 96 beds which he'll be calling his own for the next six weeks.

"Mr. Sutherland is very polite and humble. He was very cooperative during the booking process," jail spokesman Officer John Balian said.

Sutherland, who had already agreed to the sentence30 days for a DUI-related charge, 18 days for probation violationbefore today's hearing made it official, chose to be locked up in the smaller Glendale facility as opposed to the massive Men's Central Jail, aka the Twin Towers, in downtown Los Angeles.

The 32,000-square-foot Glendale City Jail offers a pay-to-stay program for well-heeled inmates who have committed lesser offenses.
Per the terms of his plea deal, Sutherland has been ordered to spend the entire time behind bars, meaning no house arrest, ankle bracelets or time off for work.

"Sutherland will be serving the 48 days in the Glendale City Jail, with no early release and no good time/work time credit, so we expect that he will serve the entire 48 days in jail," the L.A. City Attorney's Office said in a statement.

The Young Guns star will be cooling his heels in a double-occupancy 10-by-8-foot cell (although he'll get to fly solo, like Paris did) containing a toilet, washbasin and water fountain. Showers are located in a nearby day room.

Prisoners are allowed no more than two 15-minute visits per day and visiting hours are from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Three mealstwo hot and one coldare served daily, with options ranging from corn flakes in the morning to mac-and-cheese and meatloaf at night.

Sutherland will pull laundry and kitchen duty to pass the time, meaning he'll be allowed to move about the jail freely for much of the day rather than be confined to his cell.

On Oct. 9, Sutherland pleaded no contest to driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal California limit of 0.08 percent and subsequently accepted the fact that he'd have to serve some time. In exchange, prosecutors dropped a charge of driving under the influence.

Sutherland was on probation stemming from a 2004 DUI conviction when he was pulled over Sept. 25 after leaving a Fox-hosted event.

Eschewing the tardiness favored by many of his fellow celebs, Sutherland arrived 15 minutes early for his Wednesday afternoon hearing, during which he was also sentenced to five years' probation and ordered to enroll in an 18-month alcohol education class and attend weekly AA sessions for six months. He must fork over a $510 fine, as well.

Sutherland had no comment as he was leaving the courthouse, but he voiced his remorse earlier this year, saying in a statement: "I'm very disappointed in myself for the poor judgment I exhibited recently, and I'm deeply sorry for the disappointment and distress this has caused my family, friends and coworkers on 24 and at 20th Century Fox. I appreciate the support and concern that has been extended to me these last weeks both personally and professionally."

While it was originally the 24 producers' intention to shoot around the star's incarceration, it currently isn't an issue thanks to the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike. Fox has postponed the premiere of 24's sixth season because only a handful of episodes were ready before the writers walked out, and it will wait until a "whole day" is ready to unfold on a weekly basis.

"Sutherland, who had already agreed to the sentence30 days for a DUI-related charge...."

Funny how stars get to "Agree" to their sentence. "Nope, don't like that one. Give me what's behind door number 3"

Jack Bauer sneers at the puny Glendale City Jail. He will take a guard hostage and be out in minutes, after which he will commandeer a police car and lead authorities on a miles long high-speed chase thru the streets of LA, smashing many collateral vehicles in the process. He will then prove that it wasn't he who committed those foul deeds, but his alter ego, the weak, sniveling Kiefster, whom he will then torture into confessing, just for the heck of it. And he won't eat or go to the bathroom while doing it, either.

Film crews are standing by around the jail facility to record whatever happens, "reality show" style when Jack busts out. This will be the rest of the season's production, created unscripted on the fly without the need for WGA writers. See it all in January on FOX!

He's going to kill and torture so many people in jail...its going to be glorious
post #1965 of 2010
I guess he had an interesting choice to make. He could go to the big jail with lots of really nasty people, but he would probably be released early for good behavior/overcrowding. Of course he could also be passed around as a prison bride.

His other choice was to go to the private jail with non-violent offenders, but know that he'll have to serve the whole sentence.

Still yet...he's a star...he had a choice. I don't think you nor myself would get the "choice".

Maybe President Palmer will step in and commute his sentence, and then pardon him on his way out of office.

If you were a non-violent offender willing to pay for the private jail, you probably would have that option.

Now if you killed your ex-wife and her boyfried, or just your ex-wife after going to dinner, you had better be a celebrity if you want to get away with it.

If you kill your girlfriend at your house, you might get away with it if you're a famous music producer. That hasn't been completely determined yet.

Sure we would. I don't know about you, but I tend to avoid driving drunk. As a result, I get to go home at the end of the day.

I wonder if these "cells" have HDTV or instead they make the poor inmates watch everything in stretched SD as punishment for their crimes.

Oh come on now. Sure, it's easy for you, but do you know what it's like to be a celebrity? Don't you know the pressure they're under to drink heavily, do drugs and not get a cab or hire a driver?

You just take the easy way out. Sheez!

Ah, but I'm under constant pressure to be as highly intelligent, good looking and as much of an all around benefit to society as I am.

Of course, that's nothing compared to how extremely humble and truthful I have to be....

This season - the crossover you've all been waiting for:

Prison Break and 24!

The cast of Prison Break appears in hour one to break Jack Bauer out of Glendale Jail for being wrongfully accused. In hours 2 through 24, Jack evades law enforcement while searching for the real criminal - his evil twin.

All I want is Kiefer to come out of jail with a big shaggy beard like he had in the first episode of the last season. Or at least a somewhat shaggy beard like he had in the first episode of the second season.

You might be thinking, "Hey, that sounds like pretty good grub!", but I'm sure they overcook the meatloaf so it's as hard as a rock, they undercook the mac-n-cheese so it's all runny, and those sadistic prison guards make sure the Corn Flakes sit in milk for 15 minutes so they're all soggy by the time the prisoners get them.

I want to see him get in front of the camera for the first time after getting out and say "I don't know how to do this anymore....."

Typically, if you're going to plead guilty to something and skip the trial process, the district attorney would negotiate the sentence with you (via your attorney). Nothing special about this him being a star from what I can see...

Talk about punishment, just to screw with his head, someone there should get one of those big LED digital clocks with that bleeping seconds sound-- on the hour, every hour-- and put it right outside of his cell.

Even Jack Bauer flinches at the prospect of such ruthless torture. Soon, he will remember his captivity at the hands of the Red Chinese with wistful nostalgia.

How about not letting him eat, sleep or go to the bathroom for 24 hours, just like on the show?
