Lindsay Lohan Taken Into Custody For Violating Probation
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Lindsay Lohan has been ordered taken into custody after a judge has ruled the actress violated her probation in the theft of a necklace from a Venice jewelry store.
Lohan, whose grand theft case was just reduced to a misdemeanor charge, has been fighting the accusation that she stole the necklace from the store, Kamofie & Co. Lohan has claimed she borrowed the $2,500 necklace with the knowledge of the store’s owners.
A judge sentenced the actress to 120 days in jail for violating her probation. She was led from the courtroom by bailiffs.
Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, said she will appeal Friday’s ruling. The judge set bail at $75,000. Lohan was also ordered to serve more than 400 hours of community service, including 300 hours at a women’s center.
It will be Lohan’s fourth jail stint.
A misdemeanor charge carries a potential penalty of a year in jail. A trial for the misdemeanor charge has been tentatively set for June 3.
