Daily Dish: Lindsay Lohan Gets an Extra Year of Probation
The ‘Mean Girls’ star is certainly paying for her mistakes.
What a way to kick off your weekend, eh?
Lindsay Lohan was ordered to attend a hearing in Beverly Hills on Friday, where a judge added another year to her existing three-year probation sentence.
The actress, wearing a white sportcoat and black pants, marched into the courtroom alongside her attorney for the progress review in her two DUI cases.
LiLo’s attorney Shawn Chapman Holley told Judge Reveal that a misunderstanding had taken place when the star failed to notify instructors of an alcohol education class she attends (as part of her probation) that she would be returning to the class after she left the U.S. for work.
“I ordered you into court today because I wanted to speak to you directly,” Judge Revel told the star. “I don’t want to get any more notices again [that you might be in violation of probation], no warrants … where you’re thumbing your nose at the court.” Yikes!
Revel ordered Lindsay to obtain prior court approval the next time she needs to leave L.A. for business, and said that any failure to comply wit the terms of her probation could mean jail time. A progress review hearing has been set for December 15.
And while Revel was clearly a little annoyed with LiLo, she did offer up some words of encouragement.
“I’m rooting for you to successfully complete probation,” she stated.
