Lindsay Lohan ordered to 30 days in jail
Lindsay Lohan returned to a Los Angeles court today – her 7th appearance this year – and a judge ordered her back to jail for failing to complete her community service assignment at a women’s shelter.
Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked Lohan’s probation at a hearing nearly two weeks ago. Today, the judge said, “The sentence I’m going to impose is known in our circles as putting the keys to the jail in the defendant’s hands.”
She ordered Lohan to 300 days in county jail. She must serve 30 days in county jail now, and must surrender within one week. The judge added that she is “not eligible for house arrest, electronic monitoring or any other early release other than that required by law.”
TMZ reports the Sheriff’s Dept. says Lohan will serve 20% of the 30 days — six days in jail.
When Lohan, 25, gets out, she must report to a new probation officer, and her remaining 270 days will be stayed as follows:
Between now and Dec. 14, when she must return to court, Lohan is to perform 12 days of community service at the morgue and attend four psychotherapy sessions of 45 minutes each.
The judge said she must follow the rules of the morgue. “They have had an issue with your tweeting. I can’t order you to stop tweeting, but if it’s one of your rules about not tweeting, don’t tweet about them.”
Lohan tried not to smile and nodded. Her only words throughout the appearance were, “Yes, your honor,” when the judge asked if she understood.
Sautner, who is the fifth judge that Lohan has faced since her first arrest in 2007, gave Lohan deadline dates each month thereafter. By Jan. 17, she has to perform 12 more days of service and complete four more sessions. By Feb. 15, 12 more days and four more psychotherpay sessions. And by March 29, 17 more days at the morgue and 6 psychotherapy sessions.
Lohan, in the meantime, who has been busy posing forPlayboy, getting her teeth whitened and reporting to the Los Angeles morgue for community service, was ordered not to leave the state or the country, without permission from her probation officer.
“First time you violate,” said a stern Sautner, “you’ll do the remainder of the 270 days.” But, she said, “If you do all of this, then by March 29 … No more mandated therapy, no more community service.” And, she added, “We don’t have to see each other again.”
