Lindsay Lohan left court Wednesday on the better side of Judge Stephanie Sautner.
At the end of her hearing, Linds seemed to get on Sautnerâ€™s good side by offering to pay fees the Los Angeles Downtown Womenâ€™s Center incurred from having to hire extra security while Lindsay was volunteering there.
But before that, Sautner was not so pleased.
The city attorney presented evidence against Lindsay, saying that she canceled 14 of 19 scheduled psychotherapy appointments and canceled 12 of 20 sessions to volunteer at the Los Angeles Downtown Womenâ€™s Center.
Sautner didnâ€™t buy Lindsay's lawyerâ€™s argument that she had rescheduled canceled appointments. "Ms. Lohan was in charge of making he own schedule at the Downtown Women's Center,â€ Sautner said. â€œThey made special arrangements for her."
Lindsay admitted to violating her probation. The judge presented Lindsay with a combined plan of service and jail time, saying:
- "... these are not the most egregious violations ... in the scale of violating. ... The sentence that I'm going to impose ... is putting the keys to the jail in the defendantâ€™s hands. ... If you don't accept this ... you will do all your time."
Sautner tried to find a new place for Lindsay to do service, she said, but a homeless shelter refused to take her. â€œThey said youâ€™re a bad example,â€ she told Lindsay. And Sautner said she wouldnâ€™t put the Downtown Womenâ€™s Center â€œthrough that againâ€ (having Lindsay as a volunteer.)
So, she assigned all of Lindsayâ€™s hours to the LA County Morgue, where she has been doing her time over the past few weeks. Sautner noted that sheâ€™d given the morgue stipulations. â€œI've asked them to stop holding press conferences about you,â€ Sautner said.
