Judge Gives Lindsay Lohan More Jail Time
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation, which stemmed from DUI and theft cases.
Lohan Wednesday admitted that she violated the terms of her sentence to Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner, who revoked Lohan’s probation at a hearing nearly two weeks ago.
Lohan will have to serve 30 days in jail in addition to completing 53 days of community service at the county morgue and 18 45-minute psychotherapy sessions by March 29, 2012. Officials say Lohan will likely be released from her 30-day sentence almost immediately due to overcrowding at the jail.
KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz reports.
However, if Lohan violates the terms of her new probation, a warrant will be issued for her arrest and she will be forced to serve another 270 days in jail.
“You need a structure, and this is a structure,” Sautner told Lohan before the actress accepted the terms of her new probation.
Lohan, who will also have a new probation officer, was ordered to turn herself into the Lynwood Correctional Facility by Nov. 9.
Sautner had sentenced Lohan to 120 hours of community service back in April, but she was dropped from the downtown women’s shelter after she failed to show up nine times.
Lohan told the probation officer it wasn’t fulfilling. Since then, she has volunteered several times at the county morgue, despite being turned away when she arrived late on her first day.
Sautner also advised Lohan to stop Tweeting about her community service at the morgue and asked officials there to no longer hold news conferences about her.
Lohan is not allowed to leave the country and can only leave the state for work or family-related purposes.
