Lindsay Lohan appeared in court this morning for a hearing with Judge Elden Fox after recently failing two drug tests. Without hearing any arguments from the lawyers, he made his ruling and denied bail and immediately had Lohan taken into custody.
Lohan was taken from court in a single sheriff’s vehicle and brought directly to the Lynwood Correctional Facility, where she was sentenced to 90 days in early July by Judge Marsha Revel. Lohan now has a brand new mugshot to add to the collection.
The decision to send Linday Lohan directly to jail from court was very shocking, not because she doesn’t deserve to go back to jail, but because it is California law for defendants in misdemeanor cases to be given the right to bail. Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley filed an appeal this afternoon asking Judge Patricia Schnegg, Assistant Supervising Judge for the L.A. County Criminal Courts, to vacate Judge Fox’s, which she did and set a $300,000 bail.
Under the terms of her bail, Lindsay Lohan will have to get her third SCRAM bracelet within 24 hours of being released from jail. She is also not allowed to be around known drug users, must stay out of places where alcohol is the “chief item of sale” and she must submit to search by law enforcement at any time.
As for when Lohan will be released from jail, give it a few hours.
