Like her or loathe her, there's no question Lindsay Lohan has had a rough year. Its been almost a year since the debut of her disastrous collection for Emanuel Ungaro at Paris Fashion Week last fall, and she's been finding herself in all kinds of hot water since. After months of acting like she was above the law, the California court system finally threw the book at Lohan and have officially sentenced her to 90 days in jail for her 2007 DUI and for neglecting to promptly attend court-mandated weekly alcohol education classes and
submit to random drug tests, all the while showing little respect for
the court. Um…..is anyone surprised? Lohan, for one, seems to be since she apparently thinks she's been in compliance, claiming she was not expecting any special treatment and agreed to follow the court-ordered procedure to the best of her ability.
"I'm not taking this as a joke. It's my life and career. I've learned
from my experiences, I take responsibility for my actions,"
Lindsay pleaded to the judge yesterday, bursting into tears. "Honestly, it did wake me up. Yes, of
course it scared me. Also it confused me because I thought it was OK to
miss those classes. Had I known…I would've made sure I was in town
each week. It's just been such a long haul and I don't want you to think I don't
respect you on your terms because I really did think I was doing what I
was supposed to do," she said in conclusion." The judge of course didn't buy it. But on the bright side, Lohan can now put that speech on her resume as arguably her best performance to date!
In addition to the jail time (which Lohan will probably not serve out the entire sentence), the once enviable actress will also to complete an additional 90 days of rehab, and wear her alcohol-monitoring SCRAM bracelet until she reports to her correctional facility on July 20. It is tragic to see someone so young go so wrong so fast but really—how many chances does she think she gets? Perhaps this will be an enlightening experience for her (let's just hope it doesn't lead her back to designing!)
