Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in jail, after breaking the terms of her parole set by her previous arrests for driving under the influence.
"I did everything I was told to do, I thought I was being compliant," Lohan, 24, cried as she maintained that she didn't knowingly violate her probation in a DUI case by missing weekly alcohol-education classes. "I'm not taking this as a joke, it's my life and career. I don't want you to think I don't respect you and your terms."
Judge Marsha Revel sentenced the 'Mean Girls' actress to 90 days in jail and ordered that she would spend another three months in rehab after her released.
Revel said: "I couldn't have been more clear [about my orders], There are no excuses."
Lohan was ordered to surrender to the court on July 20 to begin her sentence.
It has been reported that she will serve her time at the women's Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California, where she previously served just 84 minutes of a 24-hour sentence nearly three years ago.
Upon her release from rehab, Lohan will still be forbidden from consuming alcohol until the remainder of her probation term which ends in August 2011.
However, it is expected that the star will serve a much shorter sentence due to the L.A. Sheriff Department's policy of releasing non-violent offenders early due to severe jail overcrowding.
In October 2009 she was warned by the judge not to violate her parole but then failed to show up at a mandatory progress review hearing in May, claiming her passport was stolen while at the Cannes Film Festival. She was fitted with a SCRAM alcohol-monitoring bracelet and subjected to random drug testing.
Two weeks later, the SCRAM bracelet was set off, leading to Lohan's third arrest warrant in the case, although her attorney later claimed she tested negative for alcohol.
