Controversial actress Lindsay Lohan was escorted from a Los Angeles courtroom and taken into custody earlier today (October 19) after a judge revoked her probation—but the 25-year-old star’s representative Steve Honig confirmed she has posted her $100,000 bail.
Lindsay’s probation was revoked by L.A. County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner after she encountered problems during some of her court-ordered probation requirements, which were issued as part of her sentence for stealing a $2,500 necklace in January.
L.A. County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner advised her to complete 16 hours of community service at the county coroner’s office between now and her next hearing if she wants to mitigate any further punishment.
The actress is now facing another trial on November 2nd to see if she violated her probation, and could be sentenced to 18 months in jail if found guilty.
Steve said: "Lindsay is hoping this matter will be resolved on Nov. 2 and the court will reinstate probation and allow her to continue fulfilling her community service."
Sautner explained Lindsay "blew off" the 360 hours of community service she was supposed to complete at Downtown Women’s Center, where she is thought to have missed nine appointments.
The judge said: "Miss Lohan’s actions deliberately made it impossible to complete her community service at the Downtown Women’s Center... I certainly find that cause to revoke probation."
Lindsay has been ordered to spend two days a week of her 120 hours community service at the Los Angeles County Morgue.
