Lindsay Lohan’s Felony Reduced To Misdemeanor, Sentenced To 120 Days In Jail!

Fri, April 22, 2011 7:28pm EST by 12 Comments

Lindsay violated her probation and must serve 480 hours at a women’s center and LA county morgue and she’s been taken into custody! Bail set at $75,000.

Lindsay Lohan received a reduced sentence but she’s not off scot-free! Judge Stephanie Sautner granted Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Holley‘s wish to plea her felony grand theft case down to a misdemeanor. It will not be dismissed, and Lindsay cried at court because she can get a year in jail if she’s found guilty.  But now there’s more! Lindsay has been taken into custody after being sentenced for 120 days in jail and she will have to serve 480 hours of community service!

When court returned from recess Lindsay was acting inappropriately at her felony grand theft court case, but things quickly turned somber for the actress. Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers called a police officer and detective to the stand before declaring the people had rested. Shawn struggled to get her witness to take the stand and was denied. During Shawn’s final statements she asked the judge to dismiss the case.

“Judge Sautner informed Lindsay, ‘Someone would have to be really dumb to do such a thing or really brazen,'” reveals our insider. Lindsay began crying, finally letting the seriousness of her situation hit her despite joking around in court earlier. The judge then announced she would be reducing the felony to a misdemeanor, but not dismissing the charge outright.

“Lindsay continued to tear up when told she could spend up to a year in jail for the theft misdemeanor,” our source explains. Lindsay’s case will return to court on May 11 for a pre-trial, where the LA city or district attorney will be determined, and June 3 is the date set for Lindsay’s trial.

As for Lindsay’s probation violation, Shawn asked the judge to please watch the surveillance video. The judge obliged and watched a few minutes, finally stopping the viewing and saying, “I will give Miss Lohan the benefit of the doubt that it was an accident.”

But she agreed with Danette’s statements that Lindsay waited a very long time to return the necklace, giving it back only when she knew her house would be searched. The judge continued, “There is no excuse. She has violated her probation sentence.” The judge reinstated probation and mandated Lindsay serve 480 hours of community service. 360 of the hours must be served at a downtown women’s center, and the rest will be served at the LA morgue.

Lindsay has been taken into custody, and bail was set at $75,000. She will have to post the fee, via her bondsman, at Lynwood jail because you cannot post bail past 4:30PM PT at the courthouse. Shawn Holley will appeal the judge’s sentence for her probation violation. Lindsay will take yet another mug shot, which will not be released to the public. Our spy heard Lindsay’s bail bondsman telling his assistant “Don’t worry, we are taking care of this.” Lindsay’s expecetd to post bail shortly.

Are you surprised that Lindsay’s charge was reduced or did you expect this? What do you think of her being sentenced to jail? Sound off below!

this needs to be wrapped up so lindsay can focus solely on her sobriety and getting her life back on track. i’m sick of all this crap; either send her to jail for real or don’t. cut the pretending.

interesting fact- the “patrick” with her appears to be the same dude she was saying stole her fashion sketches and she was having nothing to do with about a year back. supposedly he’s a skeeve, yet she’s back hanging with him? what a pathetic sad life she has. she is addicted to the attention, and other than the part where she actually has to serve time for a few hours here and there, she likes all of this attention. if she can’t get her ass on the red carpet, this is the next best thing for her to perpetuate her “celebrity” status. i’m disgusted with travolta for trying to work this to his advantage by using her in the gotti thing. get a hard working actress that needs a break, not this brat who has squandered her privileges… see Betty White quote on this one and Sheen.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Hollywood/Lohan set all this up for her/herself to promote a “bad girl” image to get all this accessive attention. If everything was for real about the criminal charges, she would be going to jail plain and simple. Judges just don’t drop charges with out logical reason. If the judge was trying to let her have it, the this is not it. What a joke! Lohan/Hollywood is crap!

Yeah! That’s right!!! Lohan Sentenced to JAIL!!!‎ Here’s the catch. Judge is making it appear like she is doing something, while she really intends to set her scott free with a fake pretend slap on the rist. Community service? Really??? Tell me….what would happen if it were you or me? Do you think the Judge is going to drop the charge for us? He((!!!No!!! By the time it’s all over with she is going to dismiss the whole thing then offer to take her out to dinner and find a movie for her star as the nastiest slut! It seems to be the image everyone shamelessly obsessed with. Just the roll model our already misguided youth needs! Let’s keep her in the spot light as long as possible.

Isn’t it obvious that someone is pulling strings for her????If it was the average person, the only way out would be through diversion if it was the first offense. It’s rediculous that our country basically gives promotions to celebrities who break the law rather than real punishment. Lohans judges act tough but really just “acting” like everyone else in Holliwood. They really just want to get her off the hook because she is famous(why? donno?)and knows the right people to manipulate.

I’d say good luck with that Linsey, but it really is working for her rather well! Sick! Sick! Country we live in! Sickkkkk!

wow. not so lucky now… 120 days! now, get your experts to find out if this is the kind of time (probation violation time) that CANNOT be shortened. let’s cross our fingers. if she got locked up for 4 months, it would do nothing but good for her… i also want to see that brat have to be surrounded by the underprivileged when she does her community service- tho she’s so self-absorbed and self-pitying that she probably wouldn’t even realize the absurdity of her privileged position and abuse of it.

Why do these judges keep threatening Lohan with a jail sentence if she screws up before her next court hearing, then she actually does screw up in the meantime, she then appears back in court and the judge lets her off the hook with yet “another” threat???? Its simply ridiculous. ENOUGH with Lohan. Stop it and do something legally with her.
