Judge extends probation for Lindsay Lohan

By  | 

A judge extended Lindsay Lohan's probation for another year Friday to allow her time to complete her alcohol education classes, according to FOX news.

Lindsay appeared in a Beverly Hills court Friday after the alcohol education program she had been attended sent a letter to Superior Court Judge Marsha N. Revel saying Lindsay had not been attending classes.


Lindsay was ordered to appear in court to attend a progress report hearing based on the charges that she didn't finish the classes. Lindsay reportedly was an hour and a half late for court.

Lindsay's attorney explained that the actress took the time off to make a movie in Texas (Machete), which she recently finished up.

The judge extended her probation by one year so she could make up the classes she missed and warned her to notify the court before any more absences. I hope Lindsay takes the judge's remarks seriously.

Lindsay hasn't completed 11 of her 26 court-ordered classes and must get those classes completed within the next year. A follow-up court date was set for Dec. 15, according to Access Hollywood.

Lindsay was arrested in 2007 for DUI. Cocaine was also found in the vehicle, according to police.

In August 2007, Lindsay pleaded no contest to the charges. She was sentenced to three years probation, spent 24 hours in jail and was also ordered to attend an 18-month alcohol education program for drunk driving, reckless driving and driving under the influence of cocaine, FOX news said.
