The judge in the case, Marsha Reve, originally told Lohan to surrender immediately to begin her sentence, however after some pleading Lohan was told to report on July 20th at 8:30am.
Until the time of her jail appearance Lohan must continue to wear her SCRAM device, the same anklet bracelet that went off after the MuchMusic Awards, an incident that the court later discovered occurred when Lindsay had a drink spilled on her.
“This is so not fair to do this to my child.”
Lohan addressed the court with more excuses:
“I wasn’t expecting any special treatment aside from the understanding that I have to provide for myself, I have to work. My schedule is, unfortunately, very different,” while adding, “Having said that, I did do everything I was told to do and did the best I could to balance jobs and showing up.”
“I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life, it’s my career,” she continued. “I’ve learned from my experiences, I take responsibility for my actions, I’ve tried to do the best I can.”
After her speech, the judge pointed out that Lohan had various violations stemming back to 2007 which led to the judges decision, stating “Because the program let her have some leeway, she thought it was OK. The court just doesn’t buy it.”
With only 25% of most time being served in the district, there’s a good chance Lohan will spend less than a month behind bars.
Lesson for Lindsay, next time you have a court appearance later in the day, don’t tweet about Louis Vuitton bags that are on sale, it’s hard to take you seriously at that point.
