Lindsay Lohan has been jailed for 30 days today after Judge Elden Fox remanded her in custody pending her formal probation hearing on October 22.

The actress was handcuffed and taken away and will be behind bars for the next month.

She'll serve her time in Lynwood Correctional Facility which is where she served 13 days earlier this summer.

Subdued: Lindsay arrived in court this morning looking serious. She looked smart - wearing a cream pleated skirt, black top and smart black jacket with Christian Louboutin heels

The actress was brought before the judge after failing two drug tests earlier this month. One was for cocaine and the other was for Adderall - a drug taken for ADHD.

Lindsay's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holly asked the judge if he would consider bail to which he replied 'no'.

Holly then asked if the formal probation hearing could be pushed back to October 29. The judge told her that he didn't think she'd want the hearing on October 22. A later date would mean Lindsay would have to spend longer in jail.


Familiar walk to court: Lindsay had tweeted earlier this week that she had suffered a setback in her recovery and was ready to face the consequences

article-1314929-0B55FEE6000005DC-52_468x595.jpg Protocol: Lindsay goes through the court's security which she has done many times before for appearances before the judge. Her mother Dina Lohan was at her daughter's side for support


Judge Fox did not hear any arguments from the lawyers before making his ruling. His decision stunned Lindsay's team because the underlying offence is a misdemeanor and some experts were reporting that the judge would have to offer Lindsay bail.

Lindsay's reaction was apparently that of shock when she was remanded in custody. She is said to have looked at her lawyer before being taken out of the courtroom.

Her mother Dina was later seen leaving the courthouse with Lindsay's designer Louboutin heels in a plastic bag.

Judge Fox scheduled a formal probation hearing for 30 days from now when Lindsay will have to answer to her failed drug tests.

He had previously warned Lohan he would put her back behind bars if she tested positive or skipped one of her twice-weekly tests.

The Probation Department will apparently not recommend jail time for the second failed drug test because of an ambiguity in the paperwork.

This is Lindsay's 4th bench warrant stemming from her DUI case in December 2007.

Yesterday Lindsay was out shopping at The Grove in Los Angeles - seemingly not worried about her fate.

Just last week when it was revealed she had tested positive for cocaine she tweeted that she had suffered a setback in her recovery and was ready to face the consequences.

She had tested dirty just three weeks after being released early from inpatient rehab on August 24.

She posted: 'Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day'.

Lindsay added: 'I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future. This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences'.

Last July when Lindsay violated her probation - despite cries and pleas to the judge she was sentenced to 30 days in jail - but served just 13 days of that sentence.

She then was moved to a lock-down rehab facility at UCLA where she was ordered to serve 90 days in the treatment centre.

She was released after just 23 days when the doctors treating her said her issues weren't as bad as first thought.

They had apparently weaned her off Adderall - a drug Lindsay took for ADHD - which the doctors claimed she had been misdiagnosed with.

Although Lindsay tested positive for the prescription drug - she won't have to serve time for that due to it not being clear if this actually violates her probation.

So Lindsay Lohan remains a free woman today but her troubles are far from over.

Dina had threatened Michael with jail if he turned up at court as he would have been in violation of a criminal protective order that she has against him.

Michael was turned away from the court and not allowed in to see his daughter.

He later held a press conference where he was very angry at his daughter being sent to jail.

He said: 'She hasn't got help for her problems. She needs to be in a rehab facility for a long period of time'.

Lindsay Lohan out on bail but still faces 120 days in jail

A judge threw the book at Lindsay Lohan yesterday, sentencing the troubled actress to 120 days in jail for violating her probation by getting busted for allegedly stealing a necklace.

In a remarkable change of legal fortune, Lohan was taken into custody after LA Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner ruled the "Mean Girls" star blew her second chance on a series of previous DUI arrests.

She also was hit with 480 hours of community service -- 360 at LA's Downtown Women's Center and 120 at the LA County morgue. Sautner said working at the women's center could open Lohan's eyes, adding "she might see how needy women live."

FREAKY FRIDAY: Lindsay Lohan enters court yesterday before a judge shipped her off to jail.





Lohan, 24, showed no emotion as several sheriff's deputies cuffed her and took her behind closed doors before loading her onto a bus bound for the Lynwood Correctional Facility.

However, her father, Michael Lohan, put his hands over his face as the drama played out and bolted from the courtroom.

After spending about five hours locked up, the actress was let out on $75,000 bail while her attorney files an appeal.

The shocking ruling came as the "Freaky Friday" star was in court yesterday for a preliminary hearing on charges she swiped a $2,500 necklace on Jan. 22.

Deputy DA Danette Meyers was pleased that Lohan was hit with jail time -- Lindsay's fourth stint behind bars.

"She is not taking this seriously," Meyers said.

Meyers, who is running for LA district attorney, said Lohan -- who lives in chic Venice, on LA's Westside -- has been getting off easy. Meyers was angry the actress got 120 days instead of the 180 days prosecutors requested.

"I'm just amazed," she said. "There is a different standard on the Westside."

Defense lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley declined comment. Other than her father, no other Lohan relatives were present.

Earlier in the hearing, Lohan put her head in her hands and cried when Sautner refused to dismiss the theft charges. She then caught a big break when the judge downgraded charges from felony grand theft to a misdemeanor - a decision that prosecutors plan to appeal.

That decision was a huge win for Lohan because she now faces one year in county jail instead of three years in state prison. A hearing on the theft charges is set for May 11.

But before court adjourned, the tide turned again for Lohan as prosecutors argued that she should be jailed for violating her probation -- and the judge agreed.

Sautner had harsh words for the actress regarding her alleged theft at Kamofie & Co. jewelry store in Venice, calling it "brazenness, stupidity, I don't know what.

"[The necklace] was in fact hidden in plain sight and she walked out of the store," Sautner said.

Before Sautner's ruling, prosecutors brought store employees to the witness stand, hoping to show how Lohan allegedly helped herself to the necklace.

Lohan was wearing two of her own necklaces when she entered the store, and she wore both pieces to court yesterday, taking them off at one point while her lawyer cross-examined store co-owner Sofia Kaman.

Holley showed Kaman the necklaces and questioned her about why she didn't notice Lohan was still wearing the store's necklace as she left.

"I wasn't looking at her chest," Kaman said. "I was looking at her face."

The owner noticed the necklace was missing 10 minutes after Lohan left.

During the visit to Kamofie, Lohan vowed to come back the next day, Kaman said. When Lohan didn't return in 24 hours, the owner called cops.

Details of Lindsay Lohan’s punishment, as doled out by Judge Stephanie Sautner:

* 120 days in jail for violating probation on a 2007 drunken-driving conviction

* 480 hours for community service –– 360 of those hours at LA’s Downtown Women’s Center and the rest at the LA County morgue
