Default Lindsay Lohan gets 90 days

Judge sends Lohan to jail for probation violationAssociated Press - 10 minutes ago

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - A judge sentenced Lindsay Lohan Tuesday to three months in jail and a rehab program after finding the actress had violated the terms of her probation in a 2007 drug case.

The actress immediately burst into tears after the ruling.

Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued the sentence after listening to testimony from employees of a court-mandated alcohol treatment program.

Lohan missed numerous classes seven since last December which led to the judge's harsh rebuke of Lohan moments after the "Mean Girls" star offered a tearful apology.

"I did do everything I was told to do and did the best I could to balance jobs and showing up," Lohan told the judge. "It wasn't vacation, it wasn't some sort of a joke."

Revel said she found Lohan's apology insincere, comparing it to "somebody who cheats and thinks it isn't cheating if she doesn't get caught."

Lohan was not immediately taken into custody and will be permitted to surrender on July 20. She will have to wear an ankle alcohol monitor until then.

Los Angeles County district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison said it was not uncommon for judges to allow defendants to turn themselves in at a later date so they can get their affairs in order.

The sentence tripled the monthlong jail sentence prosecutors had sought for Lohan.

The actress' father and younger sister also burst into tears after the sentence was issued.

Revel revoked Lohan's probation and ordered her to wear an ankle alcohol monitor after the starlet missed a court date in May. She was promoting a film project at the Cannes Film Festival at the time and claimed her passport was stolen.

The monitor issued an alert after the actress attended the MTV Movie Awards and after-parties last month. Revel said the device registered a .03 blood alcohol level at the time.

Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, urged the judge to place the actress back on probation, saying she had learned her lesson and had improved.

Prosecutor Danette Meyers disagreed and urged jail time for the star.

"When you ordered her to go every week, it didn't catch her attention," Meyers said in a closing statement.

Lohan spent 84 minutes in jail in 2007 after she pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and one count of reckless driving.

The plea came after a pair of high-profile arrests earlier that year. Lohan was sentenced to three years of probation but had to ask for a yearlong extension in October after she failed to complete her alcohol-education courses on time.

She needs some discipline. She's been worse than Jamarcus Russell.

Well, probably only about 20 days...

Lindsay Lohan to serve a fraction of 90-day jail sentence due to jail overcrowding

Even though a judge sentenced Lindsay Lohan to 90 days in jail, the actress probably will serve only a fraction of that time behind bars.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said women sent to jail for nonviolent crimes generally serve 25% or less of their sentence due to overcrowding.

Whitmore said the exact time served can depend on the wording of the judge's order and the level of overcrowding in the jails.

"A person [of] such notoriety will be kept away from the general population," Whitmore said outside of court.

Lohan will serve her time in Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood. She is scheduled to begin her sentence on July 20.

In 2007, Paris Hilton generated headlines when she was released from custody after less than four full days in jail, despite a promise that she would serve 23 days of a 45-day sentence.

Most states are operating on a 5 to 1 jail time ratio.

I'm going to watch Access Hollywood tonight for more coverage on this. I wish I could be part of the strip search when she goes into the joint.

90 days in Texas is around 20 days, if you don't fuck up.

They should make her pick up trash and hoe weeds on the freeways. That's what they did to Kelsey Grammer when he got a DUI. I knew one of the Caltrans guys who supervised him, and he said Kelsey was totally cool. He wore jeans and a T-shirt, rode in a van with the other guys, brought his lunch in a lunchbox and did everything they asked him to.

Somehow...I doubty she'll be as co-operative


I'd rather see her do something more nasty like cleaning the sewers or something

And if you think that's bad, apparently Naomi Campbell may be appearing at a war crimes trial

If anyone else had been given Blood Diamonds when they knew damn well what they were they'd be in the Hague right now, it's not fair that she gets off

So Lindsey Lojack gets 90 days. So the fuck what! If her name was Lindsay Lopez that worked at the local Liquor store, she'd get 3 years in the slammer. 90 days for all the shit she's done isn't even close to what she really deserves.

If she even goes to jail at all. She might wiggle her way out in a week... and the jail she goes to will be a celebrity country club where she gets to walk around freely. It's not like she'll be sharing a cell with Freda the Female Fingerer.

This girl is just asking for it. The judge didnt really seem like one to take her shit. I wonder if she will see this as an insult to her?

Lindsay is an idiot and her parents are even worse as they are enablers and bad examples. She's Hollywood's version of a professional athlete, pissing her talent away and acting stupid.
