The Mean Girls star broke down in the dock as the judge read out her sentence
Troubled Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan hit a new low yesterday, after being sentenced to a whopping 90 days in jail by a Beverly Hills judge.
Things have gone from bad to worse for the wayward actress, who, just last month was ordered to wear an electronic tag after being charged with drink driving.
During her first sentence, officials also ruled she must steer clear of alcohol, and attend alcohol education classes.
But after citing her busy work schedule as the reason for missing the regular sessions, and activating her electronic tag after drinking at an MTV party, officials decided Lindsay wasn’t taking her sentence seriously, and hauled her back in for violating the terms of her probation.
Breaking down in front of the Supreme Court judge, Lindsay made tearful plea in a last ditch attempt to avoid a jail term.
‘I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life and my career, something I have worked for my entire life,’ the actress sobbed.
‘I have tried to do the best I can. I really did think I was doing what I was supposed to do, and I mean it with all my heart.’
But the judge remained firm, telling the emotional star: ‘I couldn’t have been more clear, and it wasn’t done. It is like someone who doesn’t think it’s cheating unless she gets caught.’
It’s thought the actress will start her 90-day sentence on July 20, and will also be required to serve time as an in-patient on a substance abuse programme once she is released.
Did the judge go too far by giving Lindsay a prison sentence? Or does the wayward star need to start playing by the rules? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
