Judge Orders Actress Lindsay Lohan Back To Jail

Long Island Native Also Gets 400 Hours Of Community Service

LOS ANGELES (CBSNewYork/AP) — A judge sentenced Lindsay Lohan to 120 days in jail on Friday for a probation violation after hearing evidence against the actress in a theft case.

Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, said she will appeal the ruling, which will allow the actress to post bail.

Sautner also ordered Lohan to serve more than 400 hours of community service, including 300 hours at a women’s center.

The ruling came after Sautner reduced Lohan’s grand theft case down to a misdemeanor and after prosecutors gave their case against the actress.

It will be Lohan’s fourth jail stint.

Sautner refused to dismiss the theft case against Lohan, but said she often sees more serious cases that get reduced to lesser charges.

“I see the intent here,” Sautner said. “I see a level of brazenness with `Let me see what I can get away with here.”‘

Sautner ruled that prosecutors had shown that Lohan violated her probation, but also said in reducing the charge that she was going to give the actress “an opportunity.” Lohan entered a not guilty plea Friday.

The “Mean Girls” star arrived at the courthouse wearing a black long-sleeve shirt, blue trousers and a scarf.

Lohan has been a courthouse fixture since last May when she missed a hearing in her drunken driving case. Since then, two judges have sent her to jail twice and rehab, also twice.

On Wednesday, Fiore Films announced it had cast the actress to play the wife of John Gotti Jr., the son of the infamous mob boss dubbed the “Teflon Don,” in a biopic of the family. The project, title, “Gotti: Three Generations,” is scheduled to begin shooting later this year in Lohan’s native New York.

In an interview with the AP, Lohan said she was eager to put her court cases behind her and once again be known as an actress.

“I’m really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do,” Lohan said.

“I think in the past, I had a lot of distractions,” she said. “I’ve learned a lot. I’ve lived a lot. When I’m on set, it’s about the film.”

    I’m trying so hard to put my usual vexatious religious spin on this one, but I can’t. Ahh, the agony of the mundane!

  3. LG says:

    Actress??Really?? The only time I would like to see her in a movie would be one where she gets drilled by Lexington Steel.

  4. HUGO says:

    Lohan is a major F-UP. She deserves to serve all 120 days.

    1. michellefrommadison says:

      But, she won’t.

    These demonstrations of the treatment of the wealthy and famous in our justice system are a constant reminder about what is considered scared in this country above all else: money. Lohan is no different than all the others who are treated as another class here. And so it follows with everything else in America, it’s why the rich don’t pay their share of taxes and the poor go to jail.

    She says she hate her Dad meanwhile she’s just like him.

  8. Ron Paul 2012 says:

    She will walk in 2 weeks.

    If that were you, you would be in jail since day 1.

  9. dico j. says:

    “THE PARENT TRAP”…….She should be arrested for destroying that movie alone.

  10. THEHUGEONE says:


  11. Jon says:

    She needs to do community as a prostitute in Shanghai.

    1. dico j. says:

      Doesn’t she already do that?

  12. caseyorourke says:

    She’ll be back. She will mess up again, go before another judge and hopefully this time the judge will have some BA!!S and make her do some hard time.

  13. Gambino Valente Inc. says:

    Ah shucks, this jailing idea is just a prelude to the Gotti film publicity.

  14. michellefrommadison says:

    What a slap in the face to the courts again. She’ll be protective custody, will watch TV all day, have some access to weights and stuff, served meals she doesn’t have to prepare herself or do the dishes for, have her laundry done for her, piece of cake and the Judge should be removed from office immediately.
