Lindsay Lohan goes to jail!
Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab at yesterday’s court hearing in Beverly Hills.
Lindsay got emotion when the sentence was announced and just couldn’t hide her tears.
LiLo was sentenced for violating her probation by repeatedly missing court-ordered alcohol education classes (turned out she missed 7 of them).
In her statement Lohan tried to persuade the judge she wasn’t aware of violating the terms of probation and had to miss classes because of work.
I just wanted to take a minute to say that, as far as I knew, I was being in compliance with my programs. When I asked to leave town, [the alcohol ed program] would give me permission to leave town.
I wasn’t expecting any special treatment aside from the understanding that I have to provide for myself, I have to work. My schedule is, unfortunately, very different. Having said that, I did do everything I was told to do and did the best I could to balance jobs and showing up.
I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life, it’s my career, something I have worked for my entire life. I’ve learned from my experiences, I take responsibility for my actions, I’ve tried to do the best I can. I wasn’t missing classes just to hang out and do anything – I was working.”
As the judge announced the sentence and Lindsay broke down in tears, her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley requested that Lindsay had some time to prepare herself for jail. Originally Judge Marsha Revel asked that Lohan surrender herself immediately.
Now Lindsay Lohan is set to go to jail at 8:30am July 20th. She’ll serve her time at the Century regional facility in Lynwood, exactly where Paris Hilton served her time. The Judge said Lindsay would be “kept away from the general jail population for the safety of everyone involved.”
When her jail sentence is completed, Lindsay Lohan will start the in-patient substance abuse program and remain on probation. Before July 20th, she’ll have to keep on wearing her SCRAM alcohol-monitoring bracelet.
Hollywood is officially Lindsay Lohan-free for the next six months!
In case you forget, Lohan’s been on probation after two DUIs in 2007.
On May 26, 2007, she crashed into a hedge along Sunset Boulevard. About two months later she was arrested in Santa Monica on suspicion of drink driving. In 2007 LiLo spent 84 minutes in jail and was placed on three years probation that was later extended for a year after she’d missed some alcohol-education classes as she was shooting a movie in Texas.
In May this year she failed to visit a scheduled court hearing because she was partying away at Cannes International Film Festival. Her legal team claimed Lindsay couldn’t come back to the States as her passport was stolen in France.
When Lohan finally made it to court four days later she was ordered to wear a SCRAM bracelet and undergo random drug testing. Sources claim, Lindsay violated her bail by drinking alcohol at 2010 MTV Movie Awards after party in early June.
