A Los Angeles judge Friday sentenced actress Lindsay Lohan to 120 days in jail for
violating her probation with her arrest in a necklace theft case. Lohan was also
ordered to complete 480 days of community service, with 360 of those hours to be
performed at the Downtown Women’s Center. Lindsay was taken into custody after
the jail sentence, but that her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, was launching a bid
for her release. Judge Stephanie Sautner set Lohan’s bail at $75,000, pending an appeal.
Sautner earlier reduced a felony theft charge to a misdemeanor, after the troubled
actress allegedly walked out of a jewelry boutique without paying for a $2,500 gold
necklace in January, and set a pretrial hearing for May 11. In ordering Lohan to stand
trial, Sautner found the actress in violation of her probation stemming from a 2007 DUI
conviction. The judge then reviewed surveillance footage from the incident to determine
Lohan’s punishment. The judge said, on one hand, she thought the “Mean Girls” star
deserved a felony charge because of her previous offenses, especially her DUI conviction.
But she acknowledged that the starlet had been punished a lot in the past four years for
that offense and she downgraded the charge. The move reduces the amount of jail time
Lohan could face if convicted and opens the possibility of settlement talks.
