LOS ANGELES, California - Hollywood’s good-girl-gone-bad Lindsay Lohan is back in court to resolve charges stemming from a 2007 DUI case.
Lohan was expected to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom today for a hearing to determine whether or not she violated her probation in a DUI misdemeanor case from 2007.
The actress/singer tested positive for alcohol in the past week while being under house arrest for another violation of her probation.
However, Lohan is infamous for missing court dates. Who knows if she will even show up in court today.
The 24-year-old star has been under house arrest after being sentenced on April 22 to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service after violating her DUI misdemeanor probation.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner ruled that there was a “preponderance of evidence” that Lohan had violated her probation after being caught walking out of a Venice jewelry store, wearing a necklace priced at $2,500 that she had tried on in the same store.
The necklace was turned over to police on Jan. 27 after Lohan’s home was searched. She pleaded no contest on May 11 to a misdemeanor charge of grand theft over the necklace and was placed on three years probation and ordered to complete the jail and community service time.
Just a few days later, on May 26, she was booked at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood and released to serve her sentence on house arrest. If her probation is violated again, she may have her house arrest privileges revoked and be sent to jail.
Last summer, Lohan spent 13 days in Los Angeles County jail for violating her probation in the DUI case after missing several classes in a court-ordered alcohol education program.
