Lindsay Lohan sentenced to jail time

Tue Jul 06, 2010 @ 03:46PM PST

Lohan_lindsay_court_341 It shouldn't come as a surprise that a tearful Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail this afternoon for violating the terms of her probation in a drunken driving case.

Beverly Hills Judge Marsha Revel is clearly no fan of Lohan, ordering on May 24 that the actress be fitted with a SCRAM bracelet and following that with a June 8 arrest warrant for violating her probation. Today, Revel scolded the actress for being less than truthful about her alcohol and drug intake before sentencing her to the slammer.

It's actually Lohan's courtroom excuse for her less than diligent adherence to the rules that proved more surprising. In a pre-sentencing address to the court, Lohan said:  

"I have to provide for myself. I have to work. Having said that, I did everything to balance my jobs and showing up. I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life. It’s my career.”

Really? What acting jobs has Lohan had lately?
