Yes Lilo, jail tends to follow violations of court orders
In the video over the jump, as the judge orders a prison term, Lindsay Lohan appears to mouth the words “She’s jailing me?” to her lawyer and then the lip goes a-quiver in disbelief.
What did Lohan think was going to happen when she had a drink while wearing a court-ordered alcohol monitoring bracelet? A bracelet which, if you remember, she was ordered to wear after breaching probation - on charges of drink-driving and cocaine possession.
Surely she couldn’t have thought the judge would roll with another story like she told in May when she failed to turn up for a court appearance, which was basically that she had been stuck in France because a dog at the Cannes Film Festival ate her passport.
The 90-day sentence sounds like a long stretch but she’ll be kept away from the general inmates and local authorities have already said offenders in Lohan’s category only tend to serve about a quarter of their sentences due to overcrowding. So maybe 25 days, plus probably time off for good behaviour, she’ll be out in couple of weeks.
Even at that it’s not really as harsh a punishment as it sounds, considering this stems from incidents leading to two arrests in 2007, repeated violation of her probation terms from drink-driving and drug possession charges.
Consider Lohan’s reaction in contrast to how often you’ll see the phrase “he / she showed no response as the judge passed sentence” in everyday criminal trials.
