Lindsay Lohan in court

Lindsay Lohan burst into tears in court.

Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in prison.

The troubled actress burst into tears as Judge Marsha Revel handed her the punishment for violating her probation for a driving under the influence arrest in 2007.

The 24-year-old star – who has been wearing an alcohol-monitoring SCRAM bracelet since May – told the Los Angeles court: “I did do everything I was told to do and did the best I could to balance jobs and showing up.

Lohan said: “I was taking it seriously. I wasn’t expecting any special treatment. I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life and my career, something I have worked for my entire life.”

However, Judge Revel didn’t accept her plea and told her: “I couldn’t have been more clear about my orders. There are no excuses.”

“There were a number of instances of [Lohan] not taking things seriously,” Revel said. “It’s like someone who cheats but doesn’t think it’s cheating if they don’t get caught.”

Lindsay was ordered to surrender on 20th July to begin serving the term and the judge also said she would be required to enter an in-patient rehabilitation programme after her release from prison.

In 2007, the ‘Mean Girls’ actress pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to two counts of drunk driving and one count of reckless driving. She went to jail but spent only 84 minutes behind bars and was also ordered to complete a series of alcohol education courses. However, she failed to finish them on time and missed a number of meetings.

In May she was made to wear the SCRAM bracelet because she failed to attend a probation hearing, claiming she was stranded in France because her passport had been stolen. Then, last month, the alarm on Lohan’s alcohol-monitoring device was triggered on the same night that Lohan attended the MTV Music Awards. Lohan claimed the monitor went off by mistake, however I think we all suspect the worst.

Let’s see if 90 days in jail sorts her out. Although what’s the likelihood of her coming out early?
