The Lindsay Lohan hearing so far
Update: Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating her probation.
The court in the Lindsay Lohan probation hearing is in recess until 1:30 PST. Here are the bullet points you need to know (okay, need is a strong word here) based on what's happened so far.
As E! notes, Judge Marsha Revel indicated she will not use the SCRAM bracelet alarm incident at the MTV Movie Awards as a basis for deciding whether Lohan violated the terms of her probation. The prosecution, however, has begun calling witnesses, including staff members from Right On, the alcohol education program in which Lohan has been participating. Cheryl Marshall, co-owner of the program, bore the brunt of "what do we know about how many classes Lindsay ditched, and when did we know it" questioning. She was still on the stand when the judge called recess.
Lohan has seemed calm and subdued. She arrived for court early. She has conferred repeatedly with her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley. And she has occasionally scribbled down what are either notes about what's being said, or hand-written, 140-character comments that she later plans to Tweet.
Michael Lohan, Lindsay's father, submitted a letter to the judge asking that his daughter be kept out of jail, and instead sent to a treatment facility in New York. He is at the courthouse in Beverly Hills today. So is Danny DeVito, who apparently picked the wrong day for jury duty.
According to TMZ, Lohan was served with papers -- if having them dropped at your feet counts as being served -- while in the elevator at the Beverly Hills Courthouse. The papers are related to a civil suit accusing the actress of stealing $17,000 worth of clothing from an L.A. boutique. Getting served while heading to hear that could put you in jail; that's called having a bad day.
Those are the basics. More to come, especially if a decision is reached. In the meantime, play Pretend Jury and tell us what punhishment, if any, Lohan deserves.
P.S. No, there isn't a jury in this case. That's why this game is called Pretend Jury.
