Lindsay Lohan sentenced to 30 days in jail
Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 30 days in jail after pleading guilty to violating the terms of her probation.
The Mean Girls star appeared before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner on Wednesday and confessed to skipping 14 of her 19 court-ordered therapy appointments.
The actress had been ordered to complete 120 hours of community service and undergo counselling following a necklace theft conviction earlier this year, while she was already on probation for a 2007 DUI incident.
However, Lohan repeated failed to show up for her community service term at the Downtown Women’s Shelter in L.A., and she was subsequently booted from the programme.
On Wednesday, the star also admitted that she had not fulfilled the terms of her therapy requirements, prompting Judge Sautner to hand down the punishment and order her to report to jail by 9 November. Unlike earlier this year, she will not be eligible for house arrest.
The judge also demanded Lohan serve out the remainder of her community service at the Los Angeles County Morgue, where she has been putting in time following a probation progress hearing last month.
The actress must complete all of her probation requirements by 29 March. If Lohan fails to do so, Judge Sautner warned she would issue a warrant for her arrest and throw her behind bars for an additional 270 days.
A relieved Lohan appeared content with the sentence and was heard muttering “Thank God” under her breath as she walked out of court.
