BREAKING: Lindsay Lohan Cuffed and Taken Into Custody
A judge determined today that Lindsay Lohan is in violation of the terms of her probation. Looks like Lindsay might be going back to jail…
We TOTALLY warned you about this, Lindsay!
Yes, it’s true: After much speculation about whether or not Lindsay Lohan was on track with her community service hours and probation terms, Judge Stephanie Sautner determined today that she wasn’t. As such, Lindsay’s probation was revoked, she was cuffed, and she has a hearing set for November 2.
According to TMZ, Judge Sautner said that it was Lindsay’s own fault that she got thrown out of her probation program at the Downtown Women’s Center (you’ll recall that she was a no-show no fewer than 9 times). She also told Lindsay that she would have to complete 16 hours of community service at the morgue—a duty which she has previously eschewed—before her November 2 hearing.
Of course, Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, argued that it was too early to find Lindsay in violation of her probation; according to People, he chalked up her no-shows to work commitments abroad. He also brought up a so-called “glowing” report of Lindsay from her psychiatrist that stated, “Ms. Lohan has reached a turning point in her accountability and maturity.”
You’ve got to love Judge Sautner’s response: “Failing to show up nine times is reaching a turning point in her maturity?” HA.
What could happen after the hearing? Well, LiLo could wind up in jail for as long as a year and a half. However, Judge Sautner noted that new laws and overcrowding in jails would make this unlikely; but still. Maybe it will put the fear of Lindsay’s deity of choice in her…
