Lindsay Lohan Probation Revoked, Could Get Jail – Judge not happy. Lohan appeared for a progress report hearing Wednesday in Los Angeles as the judge revoked her probation due to problems stemming from her community service. Lindsay was handcuffed and taken away by a bailiff to await bail.
Once someone comes up with $100,000 bail, for her, the actress will be released. She will then be required to perform 16 hours of community service at the Los Angeles County Morgue before her court date. She will return to court on Nov. 2 for a revocation hearing.
“Probation is a gift,” Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner told Lohan and her attorney, Shawn Holley. “It’s a gift! It’s not a right.”
“If jail meant something in the state of California now, maybe I’d put her in jail,” Sautner said, referring to jail overcrowding in the state. She went on to say “I don’t know what’s going to happen to misdemeanors in the state of California now.”
The move is based on the actress’ most recent report that states she was terminated from a women’s shelter where a judge wanted her to serve most of her community service, city attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said. Lohan was serving probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor theft case earlier this year.
The judge in April sentenced her to serve 480 hours of community service, most of which she said should be served at the Downtown Women’s Center.
Spokesman Steve Honig said Lohan has been doing community service daily at the American Red Cross for several days, but Sautner said that would not count toward her probation because it was not part of her sentence. She has also been working to complete two other aspects of her sentencing, completing a Shoplifters Anonymous course and undergoing psychological counseling.
