article imageLindsay Lohan sentenced to jail for probation violations

Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 300 days in jail and ordered to serve 30 days of the sentence after a judge ruled the troubled actress violated the terms of her probation when she was terminated from a community service position at a women's shelter.
Judge Stephanie Sautner chastised Lohan for failing to attend a number of court-ordered therapy sessions and for cancelling eleven appointments scheduled at the Downtown Women's Center, where she had been assigned to complete her community service requirements, according to progress reports posted online by TMZ.
Lohan must surrender herself to the Los Angeles County Jail by November 9, but in all likelihood her sentence will be "significantly shortened because of jail overcrowding, according to the AP. Inmates serving serving sentences for misdemeanor crimes are required to serve 20% of their time, which translates to 6-nights in jail for Lohan.
Judge Sautner went on to tell Lohan, who has acknowledged the violation of her probation, that she was "putting the keys to the jail in the defendant's hands." The judge warned she would not hesitate in ordering the 'Mean Girl's' star back to jail for the the remaining 270 days of her sentence if she continued to violate the terms and conditions imposed by the court.
Sautner said she was not eligible for house arrest or early release, "except for that required by the law."
TMZ reports that because of a federal court ruling on jail overcrowding, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials say Lohan will not spend even one night in jail. Inmates sentenced to less then 30-days are routinely processed and released by the facility. This will work in Lohan's favor, returning her to the streets in just a few hours.
Judge Sautner ordered Lohan to continue her community service work at the LA County Morgue where the Disney actress has completed 32 hours of janitorial work. She has until March 29 to undergo eight mandatory psychotherapy session and to complete the remaining 88 hours of work at the morgue or she could be sent back to jail by the the no-nonsense judge, who said Lohan desperately needed structure in her life.
Lohan has been in the news recently after it was announced that she had accepted a deal worth almost a million dollars to pose nude in Playboy. Lohan's father Michael has had his share of troubles after being charged with three felony's stemming from a domestic dispute that includes a charge of false imprisonment.
