Lindsay Lohan( Al Seib / Los Angeles Times )
In July 2010, the former child star was sentenced to 90 days at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., to be followed by 90 days in rehab, for violating her probation related to her 2007 DUI convictions. (Lohan actually served 13 days in jail and 23 days in rehab.) Out on probation, she failed two mandatory drug tests and was hauled back into court. After fighting to make bail, she voluntarily checked into Betty Ford until her next sentencing date -- at which point, the judge sent her back to the Betty Ford clinic until January 2011.
The 2007 probation was part of a plea deal she agreed to after being arrested twice in less than two months (once after a short car chase). She spent 84 minutes in jail in 2007 after pleading either guilty or no contest on counts of reckless driving and driving under the influence of cocaine and alcohol; her 18-month probation was extended in 2009 after she had problems showing up on time for court.
After she was released from the Betty Ford Clinic (a stay that was not without its own bit of scandal), Lohan found herself with a felony grand theft charge stemming from a necklace allegedly taken from a Venice, Calif., boutique (it didn't help that paparazzi photos showed her wearing the missing item). Lohan plead 'not guilty' to these charges on Feb. 9. and was later sentenced to four months in jail and 480 hours of community service. However, Lohan did 35 days of home detention in lieu of a 120-jail sentence because of jail overcrowding. She was released from house arrest in June 2011.
