A judge sentenced Lindsay Lohan to 90 days in jail Tuesday after ruling she violatedprobation in a 2007 drug case by failing to attend court-ordered alcohol education classes.
Lohan burst into tears after the sentencing by Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel.
Lohan was not required to immediately surrender but will have to turn herself in on July 20. She will also be required to enter an inpatient rehab program after her release from jail.
The ruling came during a hearing set for the “Mean Girls” star after she missed a court date in May. She has been required to wear an ankle alcohol monitor since then.
The monitor issued an alert after Lohan attended the MTV Movie Awards and after-parties.
Prosecutors had hoped to introduce reports from the monitor to show the actress also had violated a court order against drinking imposed as part of her probation.
Revel said during the ongoing hearing the device showed Lohan’s blood-alcohol content was 0.03.
However, Revel said she would not consider whether the actress actually consumed alcohol last month after attending the MTV Movie Awards. Lohan has denied drinking that night.
Lohan arrived about 10 minutes early for the hearing at the Beverly Hills courthouse. Lohan’s father Michael and younger sister also attended.
Lohan spent 84 minutes in jail in 2007 after she pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and one count of reckless driving.
The plea came after a pair of high-profile arrests earlier that year. Lohan was sentenced to three years ofprobation but had to ask for a yearlong extension in October after she failed to complete her alcohol-education courses on time.

Lindsay Lohan made it clear to the court that she didn’t wanna wear a SCRAM bracelet because she thought it would get in the way of an upcoming movie shoot in Texas — problem is, no such shoot exists.
The producers of the only two motion picture projects Lindsay is currently attached to — “Machete” and “Inferno” both made it very clear that LiLo has no business in Texas.
A rep for “Machete” tells us there ARE additional scenes being shot in Texas but, “according to the director, they don’t include [Lindsay].”
As for “Inferno,” a rep tells us, “The Linda Lovelace biopic doesn’t plan on starting shooting ’till the beginning of August.” Also, it’s not being shot in Texas — so the SCRAM bracelet would have no affect on that film either.
Lindsay’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, relayed Lohan’s excuse to Judge Marsha Revel on Monday but the judge didn’t buy it anyway and forced her to SCRAM it up.
Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura has cast Lindsay Lohan to lead the cast of his upcoming 3D horror flick Black Friday — the tale of a man on a mission to avenge the death of his sister by seeking out the serial killer who killed her with the help of his friends.
Last month, Lohan was cast as groundbreaking adult film star Linda Lovelace in the upcoming film Inferno.

Lindsay Lohan is on course to complete her alcohol education classes.
The 23-year-old actress – who was ordered to complete the program as part of her 2007 sentence for cocaine use and driving under the influence (DUI) – is due to finish the classes by July, despite having missed some of the lessons.
A source said: “Lindsay will finish her alcohol education classes on time by July 2010.
“This date was set by Judge Marsha Revel, and even though there were some weeks that she missed class, Lindsay made up the class the following week by going twice.”
A report on her progress is currently being prepared.

Although Lindsay Lohan’s third album has yet to have any release plans, her song, “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” is still good enough to have soft releases on its own. The track which features much softer ranges for the singer, changes up her sound to sing a love on a love of which she can’t stop and won’t stop.
Lindsay Lohan needs to hire a new money manager – and fast!
Just a few weeks after she was deemed “broke,” the troubled starlet is now said to be over half a million dollars in debt.
“Lindsay owes credit cards $600,000,” a source told RadarOnline. “One card cut her off last week and it’s only a matter of time before all her other credit cards cut her off too.”
LiLo’s hard partying and dismal acting career are reportedly to blame for her lack of income. Her last film, “Labor Pains,” had one run on television before going straight to DVD.
Though she used to make a fair amount of money by doing club appearances, Radar reports that the 23-year-old hasn’t been receiving nearly as many invitations as she used to and is only being offered a reduced rate of $5,000 to $10,000.
“One credit card company is going to discuss a payment plan for Lindsay,” the source said. “But if she doesn’t have the income and can’t make her payments, they are prepared to sue her.”
Her landlord is said to have sent her a legal notice notifying her that she must pay her late rent, or else move out. As a result, Lohan reportedly paid the $23,000 she owed in order to avoid being homeless.
Sitting in a village two hours from Kolkata, Lindsay Lohan asks a woman how she felt when her duaghter called from Delhi to tell her she was being abused by child traffickers. “In the beginning you’re bound to get beaten, otherwise how would you learn anything?” she replies.
The craziness of this explanation may have been augmented through translation, but the message is clear enough.
Dismissing this programme as a grab for good publicity from a maligned megastar seems easy but Lohan handles the subject with all the dignity and it deserves. Apart from the extra publicity and contrast Lohan’s involvement demands, the fact that she is a global megastar is largely irrelevant. You don’t have to live in Beverly Hills to be shocked to hear of 11 year-olds being beaten regularly, working for 15 hours a day and earning nothing into the deal.
