Lindsay Lohan has recently begun a 90 day jail sentence, stemming from a July 6, 2010 Probation Revocation Hearing. The sentence also includes a 90 day rehab stay, after her release.
The once child fashion model has made a great career for herself throughtout the years. Her debut, at the age of eleven, in the Disney film, Parent Trap was only the beginning.
The model, actress, pop-singer and song-writer has accomplished performances between 2003-2005 in films such as: Mean Girls, Herbie Fully Loaded, and Freaky Friday. She also appeared in a few independent films: Emilio Estevez's "Bobby" and Robert Altman's "A Prairie Home Companion".
In 2007, her unblemished career took a turn for the worse. There were 3 trips to rehab and 2 DUI's to add to her list of accomplishments. However, this caused her to lose several movie deals.
On the comeback trail, in 2008, Ms. Lohan guest starred in Ugly Betty, the tv series, followed by starring in the comedy, "Labor Pains". She is scheduled to appear in "Machete" by Robert Rodriguez in 2010.
Her music talent surfaced in 2004 with the album release, "Speak". Ms. lohan gave an encore, with the 2005 sophmore album, "A Little more Personal".
Shawn Holley, her former attorney, withdrew from her case immediately following the Probation Revocation Hearing. But she didn't go defenseless because Robert Shapiro, agreed to represent her under certain conditions. The conditions were: Ms. Lohan had to comply with the probation terms and jail sentence.
On July 20, 2010, a ten minute court session before Judge Marsha Revel, of Los Angeles Superior Court, began her fate. Rumor has it, although sentenced to 90 days, she's expected to only serve 14 days of her sentence.
It's been cited that Ms. Lohan didn't take her matters seriously. Yet, now we see at the day of sentencing, it wasn't a laughing matter.
