Actress Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to spend three months (without spray tan or hair extensions) behind bars, lindsay lohan, lindsay lohan twitter page, lindsay lohan court, lindsay lohan twitter, court tv . After a day of lengthy testimony in a Beverly Hills courtroom, on Tuesday afternoon, Judge Marsha N. Revel determined that the Mean Girls star was in violation of her probation and sentenced the scandal-scarred starlet to 90 days in the Los Angeles County Jail.
The star will also spend 90 days in an inpatient substance abuse program.
Today’s hearing stemmed from Lohan’s 2007 collar on drunken driving and cocaine possession charges. The actress spent 84 minutes in jail that year as part of a plea bargain and was given three years probation. Judge Revel remarked that a court order sentencing Lohan to weekly alcohol education meeting was made very clear to the star — adding that Lindsay did not adhere to the terms of her probation. The angry judge bellowed that she would not accept excuses for Lohan’s lack of compliance.
“She knew [the prosecutor] would be asking for jail time and yet still after all that, she didn’t comply with the court order and the court does find her in violation of her probation,” Revel said at today’s probation violating hearing.
Lohan, who turned 24 on Friday, dressed demurely in a black top and dark pants, listened as an official from her alcohol education program testified that the once promising movie star sent in excuses for missing her court-ordered classes that ranged from the death of her uncle (whose funeral she did not attend) to being stuck in North Carolina.
“I believe she had nine absences altogether” between December 2009 and July 2010, Cheryl Marshall co-owner of the Right On program testified at today’s probation violation hearing.
An emotional Lindsay cried as Judge Revel sent down her ruling.
“I wasn’t expecting any special treatment, except that I have to prove for myself,” Lindsay said between sobs. “I did do everything that I was told to do and did… I’m not taking this as a joke, this is my life and my career… It did wake me up, it scared me.”
Lohan has been ordered to surrender by 8:30AM on July 20. She will be allowed to remove her SCRAM alcohol-monitoring device at that time.
Sad — but this is the kind of thing that happens when we mere mortals develop a “Jesus Complex” and forget that rules apply to everyone. Here’s to hoping Lindsay gets the help she needs. We’d thoroughly enjoy watching her recapture the talent that dazzled us in family-friendly flicks like Mean Girls and Freaky Friday.
