Kiefer Sutherland is currently in the Glendale clink as of today, considerably earlier than originally agreed to by the court. But that was before the writers’ strike caused producers to postpone 24‘s Season 7.

According to Yahoo News, Kiefer was anxious to start his sentence, which was formally handed down two hours prior to his 5:30 pm arrival at Glendale jail. By 6:10 pm, he was in a holding cell for fingerprinting and photographing. A look at his mug shot has given rise to the rumor that the picture was taken by Annie Liebowitz. This man is no Nick Nolte, mug shot-wise.

Kiefer will soon learn which of the facility’s 96 beds he’s assigned to in the 32,000 sq. ft. Glendale City Jail. He’ll be spending the entire time behind bars; no house arrest, no ankle thingie, no time off for his job on 24. There is no job at the moment, thanks to the strike.

He’ll be in a double cell, 8 x 10 feet, but probably by himself. This is no luxury accommodation. It has only a toilet, washbasin and water fountain. He will have to go to their day room to take a shower. One can only hope TMX doesn’t have spies there with cameras.

He’ll have no gourmet dinners, not that Kiefer Sutherland eats that way. He likes junk food and he’ll get plenty of it. Two hot meals a day and one cold. Corn flakes in the morning and macaroni and cheese at night, maybe with meatloaf, maybe not.

There’s a touch of nobility about Kiefer, who arrived 15 minutes early for hearing and sentencing. He will also get 5 years probation, ordered to enroll in an 18-month alcohol education class, and must attend AA every week for six months, plus a fine of $510.

How Kiefer is handling this is very classy, very honorable, and very Jack Bauery.
