Judge orders Lindsay Lohan back to rehab

In a court hearing this morning to again address Lindsay Lohan's probation violation, a judge ordered the troubled starlet to stay in rehab until January 3, but she will not be sent to jail and, according to TMZ.com, will have her SCRAM alcohol monitoring bracelet removed.

According to the Associated Press, prosecutors had sought a six-month jail stint for Lohan, but judge Elden Fox instead opted to send her back to rehab one more time. Lohan cried after the judge delivered the sentence.

"You are an addict, I hope you understand that," Fox told Lohan.

Dad Michael Lohan was spotted milling around the courthouse. No word on whether he was there at Lindsay's invitation.

In September, Lohan was taken into custody and spent a few hours in jail after testing positive for cocaine. She went directly from jail to the Betty Ford Center, where she's been since and had hoped to return after today's hearing. Wish granted, Lilo.

Is it me, or is Lindsay Lohan turning into Mobro, the Garbage Barge? You take her, rehab. No, YOU take her, jail. No, YOU. Nuh UH. Uh HUH! ... UGH. Poor LiLo.

It's only been *six years* since "Mean Girls" came out. That's the most disturbing thing about the entire LiLo saga to me. (And my understanding is that things didn't really start going downhill until 2005 anyway!)

Yep, no real consequences again. Last time she was ordered to rehab was for 90 days. She stayed a week. She just does rehab long enough to avoid jail. And TWO judges now keep letting her get away with it.

Okay, so I'll go along with the enforced rehab (presumably there won't be early release again) but can someone explain the rationale behind removing her alcohol monitoring bracelet? Hello? She violated her probation by failing a drug test and they're going to reward her with LESS monitoring than she had before? Ridiculous. This thing is a circus act.

Lohan is a celeb - she gets preferential treatment. If that were a regular inner city Joe or Mary Q citizen, their butt would be in jail for 3-5 years.

Many rehab centers have better access to drugs than the streets.

Dump her in solitary for 90 days - if she makes it, good for her. If she doesn't, it's one less druggy to worry about.

This is pretty awful - This woman has a serious, serious problem. IMO she's never going to get well unless she removes herself from her current situation and tries to build a new life away from Hollywood. She should go to rehab and then join some volunteer effort and go to some undisclosed overseas location for a year or two, come back, get an education and get a life.

Life is more important than fame. Maybe she'll learn that before it's too late.
