Lindsay Lohan was back in court today to face the Judge because of a probation violation. She was kicked out of her community service program at the Downtown Woman’s clinic and she wasn’t full filling all of her court mandated obligations.
Lindsay admitted to violating her probation and in sentencing, the judge decided to do what she called “putting the keys to the jail in the defendant’s hands.” She faced 300 days in jail but as a deal, the judge sentenced her to 30 days, to start in one week. The judge has also set forth some pretty strict rules that Lindsay must follow. If she doesn’t follow them – back behind bars she goes and for a much longer time. She will begin to serve 30 days beginning November 9th or sooner. She is not eligible for house arrest or an early pardon.
Judge Stephanie Sautner gave Lindsay a strict schedule on completing the rest of her probation — by December 14, she must have completed 12 days at the morgue and 4 psychotherapy sessions. By January 17, another 12 days at morgue and 4 psychotherapy sessions. And so on. Everything must be completed by March 29 — or she goes directly to jail for 270 days.
The morgue?? Again? That’s some hard justice. On December 14th, she’ll appear before the judge and if she completed the work, then the remaining 270 days she still needs to serve will be stayed for another month. In the meantime, she can’t leave the country and can only leave California for work or family reasons. If she violates probation at any time though, a warrant will be put out for her arrest.
Lindsay will serve 20% of the 30 days in jail – aka, 6 days in jail. As long as Lilo can follow the rules above she will be a free woman as of March 29th. Can she do it? Hopefully she’s learned that she can’t take her legal issues so lightly.
