Actress Lindsay Lohan dissolved into sobs this afternoon in a Beverly Hills courtroom as Judge Marsha N. Revel delivered her sentence for violation of probation. Because of her failure to attend weekly alcohol abuse education classes, having missed 7 of the 27 weeks, her SCRAM bracelet violation, and instances in the past when she lied about her drug and alcohol use while on probation, Lohan has been ordered to serve three consecutive 30-day jail terms, as well as face a modified probation sentence following her release.

Although Revel had anticipated Lohan surrendering today, her legal counsel requested surrender in two weeks, which means she must return to the court on July 20th at 8:30 a.m. to be taken to jail. Within two days of her release Lohan must deliver herself to a Santa Monica probation office. Said Revel: "She is to cooperate with probation in testing for drugs and alcohol, and that will be up to the probation department how often the testing will occur." Further, Lohan was ordered to abstain from the use of all alcoholic beverages, and undergo 90 days of further alcohol treatment.

Until she returns to court on the 20th Lohan must wear the SCRAM bracelet. In court on that day Revel will review if Lohan is eligible for credit for days served because of previous time spent in jail and community service.
