Things have gone from bad to worse for Lindsay Lohan, who reportedly has violated the terms of her probation and has to head back to court next month to face the judge and will most likely have to serve time in the slammer. Lindsay was placed on three years’ probation and ordered to complete an alcohol rehabilitation program after pleading guilty to cocaine use and driving under the influence in August 2007, but has not yet completed the alcohol education course the judge slapped on her. She should have attended the course once every 7 days, per judges orders, or gone into rehab but Lindsay has done neither which could see her behind bars.
Judge Marsha Revel made it clear to Lindsay late last year, she must attend alcohol ed courses once every 7 days. The only exception — if she was in inpatient rehab. And the judge was explicit … if Lindsay did not comply with the terms of probation, she was going to jail.
The school in which Lindsay enrolled is required by state law to inform the court only if the student is MIA for 21 days. So here’s the disconnect: The school has not reported an attendance violation … because Lindsay frequently waited until the 21st day to attend classes.
Bottom line — Lindsay met the school’s requirement, but squarely violated the judge’s order.
Judge Revel has made it clear to Lindsay — no more chances. If probation is violated, she’s going to jail … and probation was repeatedly violated.
Seriously – the girl can’t make one meeting a week? She has no work whatsoever! As a result, she is likely to face jail at a court progress hearing scheduled for May 20th on the grounds that she habitually violated the judge’s requirement. If the judge sticks to her word Lindsay is going to be in jail one way or another soon. Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, is denying she has a probation problem.
“We have received no negative written report from the program and contend Ms. Lohan is therefore in compliance.”
Guess that means no more nights out stumbling down and no more Twitter wars with ex Samantha Ronson. Maybe it would do Lindsay good to get a bit of perspective and some time away from the party scene. I say throw the book at her … and then throw away the key!
