Lindsay Lohan has just been ordered to report to jail for 90 days, and to pursue treatment for alcohol and drug abuse following her time in prison. Judge Marsha Revel has ruled that the actress did indeed violate her probation.

She must report to prison on July 20. Lohan began sobbing as Revel issued her ruling.

Before the ruling came down, Lohan spoke to the court and insisted she had "done the best [she] could." But that obviously wasn't enough for Revel, who felt that Lohan has consistently failed to meet the obligations of her probation, which stems from charges of cocaine possession, driving under the influence and reckless driving, to which she pleaded guilty in 2007.

A spokeswoman for Michael Lohan just appeared outside the courthouse in Beverly Hills and urged Lohan to immediately report to rehab, apparently unaware that the judge ordered her to do just that after she serves her prison sentence. A reporter appeared to correct her, and the spokeswoman then noted that Lohan reporting to rehab was "a great victory" for her dad and Lohan's family.

Guess all the "throw her in jail" posters are happy. Whole thing is just sad.

Ahh yes. Because it's all about Michael Lohan.

Good for the judge not buying Lilo's excuses.

Just a by-the-by, she's going to jail, not prison - significantly different.
Snarking aside, I hope she makes it - and in this case, I mean staying alive. She looks way too old for her young years.

Tomorrow I think we're going to do a timeline and try to pinpoin the moment her career went down - I have a suspicion its in the hair color...

She ain't addict, she just wants more attention, more than anybody else. 90 days will give her time to realise that she is wasting time to a lot of normal people.

The reports coming out about her manicure and its message really bother me. I used to have some sympathy for this young woman, but her blantant disrespect for authority is a huge part of why she's largely unemployable these days. She needs to fade from the headlines, get her head straighten out, and take some responsibility for the mess she's made of her life/career.
