Lindsay Lohan jailed for violating probation

[7:30 p.m. ET, 4:30 p.m. PT] Lindsay Lohan was ordered Friday to serve 120 days in jail for violating her probation by getting arrested on allegations of stealing a necklace from a store.

Lohan was immediately taken into custody.

Her lawyer immediately filed a notice of appeal, which allowed her to post bond since the case involves a misdemeanor violation.

The judge set her bond at $75,000, which she was expected to post Friday evening.

The same judge earlier reduced her felony theft charge to a misdemeanor.

[5:30 p.m. ET, 2:30 p.m. PT] The judge has ruled that the necklace theft case against Lindsay Lohan will go forward to trial, but with the felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor.

"I'm going to give her an opportunity," Judge Stephanie Sautner said.

    I'm only concerned with what happens here in this world, not in some fantasy world. But there are other people who should be shot in the head instead of LL. She's only ruining her own life, not anyone else's.

    ANOTHER OPPORUNITY? What's wrong with our judges? What's wrong with our justice system? Lady Justice is NOT blind. If you're a celebrity or good looking, you get a get out of jail card free. Our laws are a joke and probably the laughing stock of other countries. She will continue to offend and one day she'll end up dead of an overdose. Then her family can in turn sue the court system and the county for millions of dollars in addition to the million they've probably already spent on her bogus trials. The taxpayers are paying for this, just remember.

    Yet another example of how laws are only applicable to normal people. The rich, famous and well connected are exempt from such pesky things as laws. It's hilarious that anyone still thinks that America is anything but Mexico in an expensive suit.

      Sorry Dave,
      You try this crap in Dallas, Chicago, Wichita or Fargo and you would be in jail.

      In Hollywood, when you are a rich celeb (being white really helps), you get this kind of judge and this kind of justice.

      Um, wrong. Anything valued at over $500 is a felony offense.

      The judge reduced the charges in this case TO GIVE HER AN OPPORTUNITY, not because the judge adjusted the value of the necklace.

    She'll be back in court in no time. Lilo is a ticking bomb. She'll end up dead or behind bars eventually. Sad but true. She's not even that talented or attractive, so stop reporting on her! Lol.

    Why do these judges keep threatening Lohan with a jail sentence if she screws up before her next court hearing, then she actually does screw up in the meantime, she then appears back in court and the judge lets her off the hook with yet “another” threat???? Its simply ridiculous. ENOUGH with Lohan. Stop it and do something legally with her.

    Regardless of how many times Lohan has broken the law, the countless drugs and theft, and the horrifying example she is setting for adolescents who used to look up to her, we are all being hypocritical in these posts. Alothugh we are chasitising the judge for her opinionated ruling, we are judging her ruling on our own opinions. We want to see Lohan suffer for her actions; we go straight to the assumption that she's being "let off easy" due to her status, and that the judge was bribed due to Lohan's weath. This may be so, but we are not the judges. We are not responsible for their decisions. We harm our country's justice system when we don't have faith in it ourselves. It may do us all good to have a little faith in our justice system.

      Nobel words, don't judge.

      Well I am not in court and I do judge.

      She lives in our society and must obey and be respectful of our laws.
      If she can live outside of the laws as set out by our laws and administered by the courts then why can't we.

      She does make the system looks cheap so that many will start to think that, based upon her treatment, that it is worth it not to obey the law; do what you want, lie steal and cheat because if you are enough you can buy their way out of trouble.

      The person in this case is the poster child of "I'm rich, I'm special, I deserve different".

      Do you even know what "hypocritical" means?

      If we had stolen a $2500 necklace and were getting off scot-free while haranguing Lohan for the same thing, THEN we could be considered hypocritical. Plus she's a public figure- she's going to be judged, like it or not.

      And what wealth? She made one good movie like 7 years ago and has done hardly anything since. I'd wager that the majority of her fortune is long gone due to her never-ending legal fees. She snorted away a good deal of it as well.
