The star of “Mean Girl” Lindsay Lohan has been slammed with these charges because she violated the terms of her probation following the DUI arrests back in 2007. Lohan has been found with cocaine in her car and she has attempted Rehab several times, only to continually fall off the wagon. It appears as though Revel was tired of Lohan not following through on her promises.
Because of that Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail by a Lon Angeles Judge on Tuesday. Judge Marsha Revel sentenced her with the 90-days in jail, to be follow by a mandatory 90 days in an in-patient rehab facility. This is a much heavier sentence then the “slap on the wrist” Lohan was reported to be expecting to get.
Although the judge was strict and Lindsey was tearful, there is debate as to whether she will serve the 90 days or not. This is not Lohan’s first time behind bars. She got a 24-hour sentence at the women’s Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, CA 3 years ago. She only served 84 minutes of that sentence.
Stan Goldman, a Loyola law professor, said Lohan’s celebrity status clearly helped get her many second chances not given to other offenders in the court system. Goldman said she dodged probation violations for several years as her attorney managed to keep her out of jail despite her probation being extended for failing to complete alcohol education classes in a timely manner.
