Lindsay Lohan Pleads No Contest…May Serve House Arrest

728

Lindsay Lohan has pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor theft charge in court today, being sentenced to 120 days in jail.   But sources say the actress may spend her jail time chilling at home.

Actress Lindsay Lohan did not appear in court today, but her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, entered the no contest plea for her client.

The no contest plea is basically the same as entering a guilty plea, but the actress can avoid a lengthy trial.

Judge Stephanie Sautner said the actress still must serve 120 days in jail in connection to her parole violation, stemming from her 2007 DUI arrest.

Lohan was ordered to begin her jail sentence before June 17, but the actress may serve house arrest.

Lindsay will perform her house arrest and 480 hours of community service sentences separately. “House arrest is house arrest,” Judge Sautner said. “You don’t get to double dip.”

The troubled actress has been placed under formal probation until November 2011 so she better be on her best behavior.

Lindsay must also complete psychological counseling and a shoplifters alternative class.
