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.

    did she not know the price of the necklace before she stole it? of course she did; a salesperson showed it to her.
    therefore she KNEW she was stealing an item worth $2500 and doubtlessly BELIEVED the necklace was worth $2500.

    it is judges like this one who keep the criminals fresh on our streets.

    the judge is not "giving her an opportunity." The state has shown that it has a weak case and the judge knows it.

    I'm still curious why the jeweler let Lohan walk out of the store with the necklace in the first place. Did she say she wanted to see it in the sunlight and just kept going?

    I dont know why they say 120 days when we all know she might do 5days, its like a game to her she sits and waits because she knows she will be out in a week ,now if that was one of us we will have to do the whole 120 days but the justice system is fixed to who you are, if u are a celebrity you get a break but if your nobody u do the time thats the way it is and they call that JUSTICE, its man made laws and the law can be fixed, what a shame.
