If there's one person who understands Lindsay Lohan's plight, it's her father, Michael.

"I know that jail didn't do anything for me with my addictions," Michael, 50, said Tuesday on Larry King Live. "[Lindsay] needs help. … The last thing I wanted in the world was for my daughter to go to jail."

Calling jail too "harsh" for a "young lady like Lindsay," Michael expressed his faith that his daughter will get her act together. "When she puts her mind to something, she can do anything in the world," he said.

Lindsay's mom Dina also disagrees with her daughter's 90-day jail sentence. "This is so not fair to do this to my child," Dina told Popeater.

Lindsay also has received support from Kim Kardashian. "Sending positivity your way @LindsayLohan Love you!" the E! reality starlet Tweeted Tuesday, after the sentencing. "Everyone please send LL your sweet prayers. U never know when someone really needs it."
