A judge sentenced actress Lindsay Lohan on Tuesday to 90 days in jail and an inpatient rehab programme after finding she had violated her probation in a 2007 drug case by failing to attend alcohol education classes. The actress burst into tears after the ruling.
Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued the sentence after listening to testimony from employees of an alcohol treatment programme that Lohan had been ordered to attend.
Lohan missed seven classes since December, which led to the judge's harsh rebuke moments after the "Mean Girls" star offered a tearful apology. Revel said she found Lohan's apology insincere.
Lohan was not immediately taken into custody and will be permitted to surrender on July 20.
She will have to wear an ankle alcohol monitor, or SCRAM bracelet, until then.
The Los Angeles County district attorney spokeswoman said it was not uncommon for judges to allow defendants to turn themselves in at a later date so they can get their affairs in order.
The sentence tripled the monthlong jail sentence prosecutors had sought for Lohan.,Though it was unclear how much time Lohan will actually spend in jail.
The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department spokesman said female inmates convicted of nonviolent misdemeanours serve about a quarter of their sentence but that can be further reduced by state credits.
He said Lohan might be released on house arrest, but it would depend on the specifics of Revel's order.
Lohan could be returning to the suburban Lynwood jail where she spent 84 minutes in 2007 after pleading guilty to two misdemeanour counts of being under the influence of cocaine, and no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and one count of reckless driving.
She had been sentenced to four days behind bars.
The same jail housed Paris Hilton for 23 days in 2007 after she was found guilty of driving on a suspended license while on probation in an alcohol-related, reckless-driving case. Lohan will now have a probation officer who will monitor her progress more closely. Lohan was previously on informal probation and supervised by a judge. She will also have to enter inpatient rehab.
Revel revoked Lohan's probation and ordered her to wear an ankle alcohol monitor after the starlet missed a court date in May. She was promoting a film project at the Cannes Film Festival at the time and claimed her passport was stolen.
