Lohan arrives at LA court for probation hearing
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lindsay Lohan has arrived at a Los Angeles courthouse for a probation violation hearing that could end with the actress being sent to jail.
The 25-year-old actress arrived about 10 minutes early on Wednesday.
A judge revoked Lohan’s probation two weeks ago after the actress was terminated from a community service assignment at a women’s shelter.
The “Mean Girls” star has since been performing community service at the county morgue.
A city prosecutor is advocating the starlet be sent back to jail for her latest violation of a court order. She remains on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor theft case.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.
Lindsay Lohan returns to court Wednesday to learn whether a judge will agree with a prosecutor advocating that the actress be returned to jail for failing to complete a community service assignment at a women’s shelter.
Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked Lohan’s probation at a hearing nearly two weeks ago, but now must formally determine whether Lohan violated the terms of her sentence. The judge has asked prosecutors to calculate how long of a jail term the actress would have to serve if she is formally found in violation of her probation for misdemeanor drunken driving and theft cases.
The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office is advocating jail time for the actress, however spokesman Frank Mateljan declined to say Tuesday what sentence a prosecutor would seek.
Lohan’s spokesman, Steve Honig, declined comment before the hearing.
The “Mean Girls” star has been reporting to the Los Angeles morgue regularly, which Sautner ordered her to do at the last court appearance. The judge had sentenced Lohan to serve 120 hours doing janitorial work at coroner’s office in April, but expressed hope that the actress would benefit from working three times that amount of hours at a women’s shelter.
Lohan, 25, was terminated from the shelter program after failing to show up nine times at the center. She told her probation officer the assignment was not fulfilling, according to the actress’ probation report.
