Lindsay Lohan Faces Up to Eight Months After Having Her Probation Revoked USA Today
Actress Lindsay Lohan has had her probation revoked and could wind up back in jail for as much as eight months, USA Today reports.
A judge in Los Angeles revoked Lohan’s probation, which was related to a widely publicized necklace theft, and set a hearing to determine whether Lohan, 26, will be returned to jail.
Lohan did not appear in court, but was represented by attorney Shawn Holley. “Lohan is said to have jetted off to London and Dubai with rock group The Wanted and her rumored boyfriend Max George,” the story reports.
The report adds: “The ruling came as Lohan faces misdemeanor counts of reckless driving, lying to a police officer and obstructing an officer from performing duties after an accident in which her Porsche slammed into the back of a dump truck in June, reports AP.”
Lohan reportedly told officers at the time of the collision in Santa Monica, Calif., that her assistant was driving. But authorities believe Lohan, who was on probation at the time after being convicted of misdemeanor theft of the necklace along with two DUI charges, was behind the wheel.
“A probation violation hearing was set for Jan. 15, when Lohan is expected to be formally charged with the three misdemeanors stemming from [the] crash,” the piece reports. “A judge could sentence the actress up to 245 days in jail, reports AP.”
Holley reportedly said Lohan is not required to appear at the upcoming hearing, adding that she expects to have the matter resolved in enough time that Lohan won’t have to appear at all.
“Meanwhile, Lohan is also due back in New York court on Jan. 7 for an arraignment into her alleged assault of Tiffany Mitchell,” the piece adds.
