Lindsay Lohan has been found in violation of her probation and sentenced to 90 days in jail. Judge Marsha Revel said Lohan was in violation of probation in a 2007 drug case, and blew off nine court-ordered alcohol education classes.
LiLo was sentenced by the judge on three separate charges, each carrying a 30 day sentence. She’ll also have to spend 90 days in rehab once she’s released!
The judge ordered Lohan to report to the courthouse on July 20 at 8:30 a.m. to turn herself in to start her sentence. She’ll also have to wear her court-ordered SCRAM bracelet until then.
Before sentencing, a tearful Lohan addressed the court, saying “as far as I knew I was in compliance with my programs.”
“I wasn’t trying to get special treatment,” she said. “I have to provide for myself. I have to work. Having said that, I did everything to balance my jobs and showing up. I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life. It’s my career…I take responsibility for my actions. I’ve tried to do the best I can. It’s been such a long haul, I don’t want you to think that I don’t respect you.”
But the judge wasn’t buying it. “It’s like someone who cheats but doesn’t think it’s cheating if they don’t get caught,” Revel said, referring to LiLo’s denial over her drug ‘n’ booze problems.
Realistically, LiLo is unlikely to spent the full 90 days in the slammer. I guarantee you she’ll be out before then – she’ll probably only do a quarter of the sentence. And the even bigger question: Will she redeem herself after being in rehab and the pokey?
Ultimately, if she sorts her crap out, the sentence could be the best thing that happened to her.
