Lindsay Lohan’s Probation Revoked, Probation Violation Hearing Set

Lindsay Lohan Probation Revoked Lindsay Lohan‘s attorney, Shawn Holley, appeared in a Southland, Calif., courtroom on Lohan’s behalf Wednesday for an arraignment stemming from misdemeanor charges (including lying to the police, driving recklessly, and resisting an officer) associated with the actress’  June car accident. Holley has not responded to Hollywood.com’s request for comment. 

During the hearing, of which TMZ aired a live feed, Commissioner Jane Godfrey revoked Lohan’s probation and set a probation violation hearing for Jan. 15, 2013.

In January, Godfrey will determine whether Lohan violated her probation. If it is decided that she has, Lohan could face up to 245 days in jail. According to TMZ, however, Godrey has a reputation for avoiding giving out prison sentences.

When Hollywood.com spoke with Seton Hall law professor Jenny Carroll following Lohan’s November arrest in New York City, she explained that punishment for violating one’s probation could range from a warning to jail time.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
