The ACLU wants Lindsay Lohan's help shedding light on the deplorable conditions in L.A. County's jail system.
In an open letter to the Herbie Fully Loaded star, the ACLU asks her to use her celebrity as a vehicle to expose the atrocities facing inmates behind bars. The ACLU specifically mentions prisoners facing embarrassing group strip searches, verbal harassment, and refusal of necessary medications.
Lohan's experience will differ slightly from the general prison experience because she's being isolated from other inmates. But the ACLU sees this as an opportunity for Lohan to start rebuilding her reputation -- and to bring attention to an issue this isn't often covered by the media.
