Lindsay Lohan Sentenced to 120 Days in Jail, Posts $75,000 Bail
Lindsay Lohan’s legal troubles continued over the weekend.
On Friday, a judge sentenced the 24-year-old actress to 120 days in prison for violating her probation by allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace. In addition to jail, Lohan was also ordered to serve 480 hours of community service.
Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, quickly appealed the ruling, and the ‘Mean Girls’ star was out on $75,000 bail just hours after she was sentenced.
Despite the 120-day sentence, Lohan was given a bit of good news on Friday: Judge Stephanie Sautner reduced her felony grand theft charge to a misdemeanor. She now faces up to a year in prison, as opposed to three.
Lohan’s trial begins on Jun. 3.
In the meantime, a friend told PEOPLE that Lohan is “angry” about the ruling “because she has been working so hard on turning her life around.”
One sign that Lohan may actually be serious this time: she just signed a two-picture deal to co-star in two mafia-related movies, one of which is a biopic about John Gotti, starring John Travolta as the infamous mobster.
