Lindsay Lohan Will Not Be Going To Jail For Probation Violation
After testing positive for alcohol while under house arrest, Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to return to court Thursday morning for violating her probation terms. And, right on time, Lohan’s media regular father, Michael Lohan, is speaking out about his daughter’s inability to stay on the straight and narrow or surround herself with positive influences.
“If it’s true, whatever she’s doing isn’t right,” Lohan told PopEater’s Rob Shuter. “There’s a chubby English girl named Nikki who is always around her and when she is, I get a sick feeling and there is always a problem.”
Just over a week ago Lohan threw a party on the roof of her Venice, California home. The troubled starlet, who was still under house arrest at that time, looked to be enjoying herself as did her friends — Lohan was spotted drinking from a red cup while her friends enjoyed beers and wine.
Just days after her rooftop shindig, Lohan told Life & Style that although she hosts friends at her home occasionally, their socializing never revolves around alcohol.
“When my friends come over, they’re not drinking,” she said. “Alcohol is not in my house, so it’s not part of my life.”
The disconnect between what Lohan says and does is what keeps her father up at night.
“I’m so worried about my daughter,” Michael Lohan told Radar Online. “I’m very, very concerned about the people around Lindsay and the pressure being put upon her. If it turns out that the test was positive, then I have strong concerns because if a person can’t stay straight in the house where can she stay straight?”
But when it comes to Lindsay’s violated probation due to a failed routine alcohol test, father Lohan is fearful that a judge may rule to send his daughter to the slammer — a decision he believes could only further harm her. Instead, he has his own ideas for Lindsay’s recovery.
“I’m still opposed to jail,” he said. “She needs to go to rehab. She needs to be in a program called G&G Holistic in Florida. They will not only give her rehabilitation, but they are a detoxification center and they don’t believe in prescription drugs. I don’t think Lindsay needs to be on any prescription drugs, and I think that’s part of the problem.”
Although Lohan was expected to complete her houAfter testing positive for alcohol, Lindsay Lohan arrived in court this morning for a probation violation hearing — a legal bout that was apparently never even supposed to take place.
After facing Judge Stephanie Sautner, in what looked like could have resulted in jail time for Lohan, it was ruled that the starlet would get off scot free — but only on a technicality. Before being placed under house arrest, Lohan was ordered to adhere to controlled substance testing, not alcohol testing. On top of that, Lohan’s substance testing was only supposed to take place between February 3 and February 25.
But the judge did rule that Lohan is only permitted one friend to visit her Venice, California home at a time. She is also forbidden from hosting any parties. According to Sautner, the only thing Lohan is guilty of is “extremely poor judgement,” according to TMZ.
Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, was all smiles after the court appearance telling reporters, “I feel like you guys are disappointed … [Lohan’s] done nothing wrong. She’s done everything right. So let’s give her credit for that.”
The forthcoming ‘Gotti: Three Generations’ star was tested twice last week for drugs and alcohol (tests that have now been deemed superfluous) while serving her sentence under house arrest, when she tested positive for alcohol, setting off a media firestorm. She is currently serving a four month house arrest sentence for stealing a necklace from a Venice, California jewelry store — a sentence that is supposed to culminate next week, on June 29.
Lohan also seemed to be in high spirits following her hearing: “Thank you to all my fans for your support. Sending you Love and Light. xo,” she tweeted.
But other stars are less than thrilled with Lohan’s lack of punishment: “What has happened to the justice system in the sate of California seem like all you have to be is famous & they let you get away w/ murder,” Kelly Osbourne tweeted.
So what’s one thing that Lohan did get out of her unnecessary court appearance? She finally nailed appropriate court attire. The troubled actress arrived at the LAX Airport Courthouse sporting black trousers, a button down shirt, aviators and a high ponytail — a far cry from her previously revealing court get-ups.se arrest time on June 29, with her pending Thursday court appearance, the starlet could be sentenced to additional house arrest or even jail time.
