Lindsay Lohan was in tears this past Friday when a Judge sentenced her to 120 days in jail for violating her probation by getting busted for allegedly stealing a necklace. A few hours after being taken into custody, Lohan was released on $75,000 bail.
In addition to the jail sentence, L.A. Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner sentenced the troubled starlet to 480 hours of community service, including 360 at the Downtown Los Angeles Women’s Center, and 120 at the LA County morgue. Sautner said working at the women’s center could give her some perspective: “Perhaps then she might see how truly needy women who have fallen on truly hard times have to live.” Lohan has already filed a notice of appeal to the ruling.
The judge did downgrade charges of Lindsay’s alleged swiping of a $2,500 necklace on January 22nd from felony grand theft to a misdemeanor, but Lohan put her head in her hands and cried when the judge refused to dismiss the charges outright.
The judge felt that when Lohan walked out of the store wearing the necklace, she showed intent to keep it. “I see the intent here. I see a level of brazenness with, ‘Let me see what I can get away with here,'” she said.
This will be Lilo’s fourth jail stint. (Michael would be proud).
