VIDEO: More on Lohan's Courtroom Drama
It just wasn’t Lindsay Lohan’s day. As we reported earlier, Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in prison followed by a 90 day stint in rehab.
Judge Marsha Revel sentenced LiLo after an incredulous prosecutor, Danette Meyers, told the judge that Lohan has been thumbing her nose at the court.
The evidence was loud and clear today — Lindsay violated probation by failing to attend her alcohol ed classes based on the schedule set by the judge. There were lots of excuses, but ultimately they didn’t fly.
The judge said there was a pattern of violations since Lindsay was placed on probation in 2007 following her plea bargain in her DUI case.
Lindsay broke down as she addressed the court, telling the judge, “I did the best I could.”
Lindsay dissolved into tears when the judge imposed the sentence.
Lohan must surrender on July 20 in Judge Revel’s court.
UPDATE: Sheriff’s spokesperson Steve Whitmore just explained … generally, a female inmate in Lindsay’s situation only serves 25% of their sentence … which means LiLo will most likely spend around 23 days behind bars. [TMZ]
Now, before you start saying that the 25% thing is celebrity justice, know that this is just par for the course in SoCal. I have seen this first hand, and it’s a joke. So I’m betting that Lohan won’t serve 20 days. Maybe a week. If that.
