Next violation means jail, judge tells Lohan


Lindsay Lohan has been serving three years' probation on DUI charges.
Lindsay Lohan will be heading to jail if a judge hears again the actress has not been attending a required alcohol counseling program.

“This is the last time we are going to be talking about re-enrolling and doing what you need to do,” Judge Marsha Revel told Lohan on Friday in extending her probation for a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence. Revel had ordered the actress to appear in court Friday after she was notified by the program that Lohan was missing meetings. Lohan was arrested twice in 2007 on charges of driving under the influence, and in the second incident also was charged with cocaine possession. The first arrest — in May — came after Lohan lost control of her Mercedes-Benz convertible and struck a curb in Beverly Hills, California. Just two weeks after checking out of a Malibu, California, drug and alcohol rehab facility, she was arrested again in July 2007 after a woman called Santa Monica, California, police saying Lohan was trying to run her down with a car. Lohan was sentenced to three years’ probation after she entered guilty and no-contest pleas to the charges. Lohan’s acting career, which started at age 10 on a soap opera, took off on the big screen a year later when she played identical twins in Disney’s “The Parent Trap.” Since then, she has starred in at least a dozen movies, including “Georgia Rule” with Jane Fonda in 2007. Her pop music recording career, boosted by her movie roles, has faded recently. Her last album was released in 2005.
