Jailed! Lindsay Lohan Sentenced to 90 Days For Probation Violation; Star Breaks Down in Tears

by at . Comments

Lindsay Lohan's day of reckoning has arrived, and an orange jumpsuit will soon follow - she'll be doing 90 days in jail for violating probation, followed by rehab.

The troubled actress must surrender July 20.

She's beaten the rap before, but from the very beginning today, the star's attempts to evade jail for skipping mandatory alcohol education classes were doomed.

She has now made good on the classes, but that wasn't true in May, when she bailed on her last hearing and ended up free on bail wearing a SCRAM device.

Whether she remained free or not rested with no-nonsense Judge Marsha Revel, who sentenced LiLo after incredulous prosecutor Danette Meyers took it to her.

Hard core.

UP AGAINST IT: The evidence against her too strong and the judge no pushover, Lindsay and lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley were unable to defy the odds again.

Court proceedings began with a victory for the troubled star. Revel ruled out the matter of the SCRAM device going off after the MTV Movie Awards June 7.

The hearing was thus exclusively about whether Lindsay Lohan violated probation by not attending enough alcohol ed classes at the time of the last hearing.

Not that she was out of the woods by any means.

The Office Manager at the Right On program testified that the program knew the judge wanted Lindsay to attend class once a week, which she did not.

Co-owner Cheryl Marshall testified that she violated the program by failing to attend the classes and coming up with a variety of excuses throughout.

The program determined in both May and August 2009 that Lindsay's excuses were "endless and disrespectful" and that she was not in compliance.

Prosecutors are clearly not taking this lightly, running down the list of times - nine total - that Lindsay skipped class, often for weeks at a time no less.

Court adjourned until 1:30 PST, but when it resumed, it was clear that the evidence was piling up against Lohan - she violated probation, plain and simple.

There were lots more excuses, but ultimately they didn't fly. Revel laid the smack down on Lohan and sentenced her to almost three months in the can.

Lohan's probation was contingent upon her attending classes and staying clear of trouble following her 2007 DUI conviction. Suffice it to say, it didn't take.

The judge noted that there was a pattern of violations since Lindsay was placed on probation in 2007 following her plea bargain in her DUI case. Ya think?

Lindsay dissolved into tears when the judge imposed the sentence, then broke down as she addressed the court, telling the judge, "I did the best I could."

Sure thing. Surprising she didn't blame everyone else right there.

Is the punishment just? Tell us: Lindsay Lohan belongs in ...

For some strange reason this young lady thought she was above the law, like so many celebs, and her list of don'ts goes on and on and on. So now she pays the piper, do we feel sorry for her? Not this old woman, she apparently needs a strong person to tell her "no, no Lindsey, you're not to do that" and then follow through for crying out loud. She's pushed and pushed, just like a spoiled brat. And it got her where..........that's what I thought. Hope she gets it together, somehow, sometime, and somewhere. Too bad so sad. Maybe.

Who is this lawyer? Where did Lindsay find her?? She's weeping at the sentence? She literally was coward not to put a muzzle on her client and to demand from Lindsay the dictates of the court or she'd walk! I mean she acted like a fan.

Marsha Revel and Danette Meyers deserve no praise. Their first priority is not protecting the public welfare, but rather looking good and protecting their personal fiat sphere at the expense of dealing with negative citizen behaviors.

Lohan needs to pay a large fine and remain on probation. Should she violate terms of probation, she should pay a much larger fine. This can be repeated until, she either complies or runs out of money. Only then do we you spend limited resources locking her up. This would be obvious if courts were themselves compliant with the law and forced to be fiscally disciplined as the public welfare demands they be.
