Lindsay Lohan's Probation Revoked; New Court Date Set for January 2013
Commissioner Jane Godfrey revoked Lindsay Lohan's probation early Wednesday morning at an arraignment on charges stemming from an incident in June, in which Lohan's black Porsche slammed into the back of a garbage truck on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Lohan, who did not attend Wednesday's hearing, was put on probation in 2011 after she was accused of stealing a necklace from a Beverly Hills jeweler. If the court decides that Lohan -- who in November was charged with giving false information to a police officer, obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty and reckless driving -- violated her probation at the time of the crash, she could face up to 245 days behind bars.
A hearing for the probation violation is scheduled for Jan. 15, 2013.
It's been a rough couple of months for Lohan, who is slowly trying to rebuild her flailing acting career and public image after years of run-ins with the law. In November, her Lifetime original movie, Liz & Dick, in which she portrayed the late Oscar-winning icon Elizabeth Taylor, premiered to middling ratings and terrible reviews from critics.
