Wow, I never thought I’d actually see the day, but check out Lindsay Lohan here looking absolutely demure. These were taken just last week when the 25-year-old was spotted heading to court for her hearing.

Sentencing and Probation Violation
The controversial actress was sentenced to 30 days in jail for failing to complete her community volunteer service at a women’s homeless shelter.
Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked Lindsay‘s probation at a hearing nearly two weeks ago. It has now formally been determined that Lindsay violated the terms of her sentence. Lindsay has one week to surrender herself to prison.
Fashion in the Courtroom
Jail punishment aside, it is quite refreshing to see her in a dainty and lady-like dress. She styled her high-neck polka dot dress with white T-strap Giuseppe Zanotti platform heels.

Community Service and Counseling Requirements
The actress had been ordered to complete 120 hours of community service and undergo counseling following a necklace theft conviction earlier this year while she was already on probation for a 2007 DUI incident.
However, the Mean Girls actress repeatedly failed to show up for her community service term at the Downtown Women’s Shelter. She was subsequently booted from the program.
The Final Ruling and Sentencing
On Wednesday, the star also admitted that she had not fulfilled the terms of her therapy requirements, prompting Judge Sautner to hand down the punishment and order her to report to jail by November 9.
Unlike earlier this year, Lindsay will not be eligible for house arrest. The judge also demanded that she serve the remainder of her community service at the Los Angeles County Morgue, where she has been putting in time following a probation progress hearing last month.
The actress must complete all of her probation requirements by 29 March. If Lindsay fails to do so, Judge Sautner warned she would issue a warrant for her arrest and throw her behind bars for an additional 270 days.
Lohan’s Reaction to the Sentence
A relieved Lindsay Lohan appeared content with the sentence and was heard muttering “Thank God” under her breath as she walked out of court.
