October 19, 2011, (Sawf News) – Having given Lindsay Lohan an incredible amount of slack on earlier occasions, Judge Stephanie Sautner ripped into the troubled star for continuing to defy the law, during a probation hearing on Wednesday, October 19.

The judge revoked Lindsay’s probation for violating the terms of her probation, after the prosecutor told the judge that Lindsay had been booted out of community service program at the Downtown Women’s Center because of her conduct. The judge set bail at $100,000.

Sautner, who had earlier warned Lindsay to stay in compliance of the terms of her probation lamented:

“There has been violation after violation. Probation is a gift, it’s not a right.”

Following the ruling, Lidsay’s hands were cuffed and she was taken into custody. Later during the day, Lindsay posted bail and was free again.

She has been asked to appear in court again on November 2 for a follow-up hearing that may see her being sentenced to jail.

During the hearing, the judge easily saw through a report by probation department officials that stated that Lindsay was in “substantial compliance” with the terms of her probation and defended her conduct at the Women’s Center saying the assignment was “not fulfilling.”

Under the terms of her probation, Lindsay is required to attend therapy every week. According to the report, a copy of which has been obtained by TMZ, Lindsay has been attending therapy every Tuesday and her psychotherapist “believes that the defendant has been developing tools to help discipline herself and she is really proud of her accomplishments.”

It quotes the therapist as stating, “The defendant is doing really well, she is making changes, and is trying to become more disciplined in her actions.”

A skeptical Judge Sautner pointed out that Lindsay had spent weeks overseas during the period.

According to TMZ, the judge will ask the probation department to substantiate their claim that Lindsay attended all her weekly sessions during the November 2 hearing.

Chastised by the adverse outcome of the court hearing, Lindsay is reportedly ready to make amends, but that maybe something you have heard before.

According to TMZ, Lindsay has been telling friends that she gets it – she got what she deserved.

She plans to start her community service at the morgue in right earnest on Thursday, even putting in extra time to impress the judge.

When she appears before the judge on November 2, it will be with a record that lends credibility to her plea that she doesn’t deserve jail time.

Lohan’s publicist told Radar Online: “Lindsay is hoping this matter will be resolved on November 2 and the Court will reinstate probation and allow her to continue fulfilling her community service.”
