Lindsay Lohan Sentenced to JAIL!!!

4/22/2011 8:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Judge Stephanie Sautner just threw the book at Lindsay Lohan for her probation violation, sentencing her to 120 days in county jail!!!

Lindsay Lohan Jail

Lindsay has been remanded into custody and taken to the basement of the courthouse for booking.  Lindsay's lawyer has said she'll appeal, which means Lindsay is entitled to post bail.

Lohan was also ordered to complete 480 hours of community service -- 360 of those hours must be performed at the Downtown Women's Center, so Lindsay can see how needy women have to live.  The remaining 120 hours will be served at the L.A. County morgue.

Judge Sautner explained that Lindsay should have called the store and notified the owners about the necklace sooner.  She waited several weeks and returned the necklace after finding out the cops were about to raid her house.

Sautner seemed influenced by the surveillance video, which she saw for the first time in court today.  Sautner agreed with Danette Meyers, who argued Lindsay used her friend Patrick as a decoy to distract the clerk.

Is this something she can't just get released by bonding out?

I am shocked and disturbed by this ruling.

The criminal in this situation is the shop owner who tried to exploit Lindsay Lohan by claiming she stole a cheap necklace.

The store has gotten over $1 MILLION in free publicity.

They sold copies of the security tapes and capitalized any way they could.

The item in question was returned so there was full restitution.

Movie stars are not supposed to get 120 days in county jail for taking jewelry on loan or trial from Hollywood shopkeepers.

What has happened to the old studio system?

First went the Brown Derby, the sign removed from Barney's Beanery, then the last of the old guard sells Boardners to hipsters and no coat & tie is required for dinner at Musso's...

What has happened to Hollywood?

Four months. I'm surprised because I thought they would give her a slap on the wrist. Now let's see how much time she REALLY serves.

TMZ is it 480 DAYS of community service or HOURS ~ the post is confusing, as you first state days then break it down to reflect hours ~ if you could please repost/restate to clear it up, that would be much appreciated :) Thanks!

She should be in there at least a month, possibly 45 days. I doubt it will be longer than that. She deserves to be in there longer than 120 days, though. An average person would serve at least 60 - 90 days, we'll see what happens. The person who mentioned 10% is wrong. The community service was a GREAT decision, especially considering where she has to serve it. At this point, seeing what goes on in both places may be the only thing that can help her. She needs a heavy dose of reality.

@justme
It is 480 hours of community service.
480 days would be ridiculous.
