Lindsay Lohan & Paris Hilton Back in Court for Drug Violations

There have been new developments this week in the drug crime cases of actress Lindsay Lohan and hotel-heiress Paris Hilton. Last Friday, Lohan admitted on her Twitter feed that she had failed a random, court-ordered drug test and a bench warrant has since been issued for her arrest. On Monday, Hilton pleaded guilty to drug charges stemming from her arrest last month in Las Vegas.

The warrant for Lohan's arrest is on hold until her Friday morning court hearing. Lohan will appear before the judge to find out whether her failed drug test, reported by TMZ.com to have been a positive test for cocaine, constitutes a violation of her probation. Lohan has been on probation since she was released from inpatient rehab on August 24 after spending 22 days there. Before rehab, she spent 14 days in jail for violating the terms of her previous probation, which she was on for arrests in 2007 for drug charges.

Lohan was put on strict probation after being released from rehab, which included frequent therapy sessions and random drug and alcohol tests. According to the terms of her probation, Lohan could face up to 30 days in jail for failing a drug test. The judge had said that Lohan could be released from probation as early as November, but only if she did not fail a drug test.

Hilton's drug case also involves cocaine and Twitter. She was arrested in Las Vegas last month after officers found cocaine in her purse. Hilton initially said that the cocaine and purse did not belong to her. A photo surfaced, however, on her Twitter feed of the same purse as a recent exciting purchase. Hilton said in court on Monday that she had earlier lied to police.

Hilton pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of drug possession and obstructing an officer. Hilton was sentenced to one year probation. If she is arrested within the next year, she could be sent to jail.
