Last Tuesday, Judge Marsha N. Revel ruled that Lindsay Lohan disobeyed the terms of her probation in a drunk driving case and sentenced her to 90 days of imprisonment. The case dates all the way back to 2007, when the actress was charged with DUI in two separate incidents. Judge Revel did not use the SCRAM bracelet alarm incident during the MTV Movie Awards as a basis for deciding but did state several instances over the last few years in which the actress lied about using illegal drugs and drinking. But the failure to comply of then actress with the weekly attendance directive for alcohol education classes locked her fate.
Judge Revel said, “It’s like someone who cheats but doesn’t think it’s cheating if they don’t get caught.”
Before the final judgment, a weeping Lohan addressed the court saying that she’s in compliance and following all rules: “As far as I knew I was in compliance with my programs.”
“I wasn’t trying to get special treatment,” the Lohan said. “I have to provide for myself. I have to work. Having said that, I did everything to balance my jobs and showing up. I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life. It’s my career…I take responsibility for my actions. I’ve tried to do the best I can. It’s been such a long haul, I don’t want you to think that I don’t respect you.”
Lohan will surrender herself on twentieth of July, and must wear her alcohol monitoring bracelet until then. The actress lawyer requested to remove in return for daily blood tests, but the judge refused. The actress will get a couple days knocked off her sentence for time she already served. The 90-day sentence includes three sentences of 30 days each, to run consecutively, for her reckless driving and two DUI charges from 2007. Michael Lohan, Lindsay father, brought his own lawyer and tried to address the court but was rebuffed by judge Revel.
