Lindsay Lohan to spend more time in jail for probation violations

Lindsay Lohan's probation for a 2007 DUI and drug case will be yet again extended. Lohan's defense attorney entered a no contest plea on Lohan's behalf on Wednesday in a theft case. Lohan was accused of stealing a necklace worth $2,500 from a store near her house. The no-contest plea does not admit guilt, but it does mean a conviction for Lohan. The theft conviction will lead to jail time for Lohan, but just how much will be determined after she reports to jail on June 17.

In 2007, Lohan was arrested on suspicion of DUI. Lohan ended up pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to three driving charges and was put on probation. This probation will continue now that Lohan was convicted of the theft. The 24-year-old actress was accused of stealing the necklace and not returning it until the theft was reported to police and police were issued a warrant to search Lohan's property.

Lohan was sentenced on Wednesday to 120 days in jail. She must also serve 480 hours of community service. Lohan is planning on completing her community service at a shelter for battered women and at a coroner's office. Lohan must also complete counseling and undergo psychological evaluation.

Lohan spent some time in jail last summer and was admitted to inpatient and outpatient substance abuse rehabilitation centers after other probation violations. She was sent to jail and rehab for not completing the substance abuse education classes required by her 2007 probation. According to the Associated Press, the judge in the case feels that Lohan is not necessarily addicted to drugs and alcohol as much as she is using them to self medicate for other personal issues.
