Troubled Lindsay Lohan gets slapped with four months in jail for misdemeanor by Judge Stephanie Sautner.

Lohan violated her probation when she allegedly stole a $2,500 necklace. Although allowed to post bail, Lohan was also be performing 480 hours of community service as part of the sentence.

Judge Sautner reduced Lohan’s sentence from felony grand theft charge to a misdemeanor, explaining she was “giving [Lohan] an opportunity.” But not without a proper scolding. “Would a person with any brains walk out with a necklace with [security] cameras on?” Judge Sautner asked. “Maybe it’s brazenness, stupidity – I don’t know what. Perhaps it was a desire to hide in plain sight.”

Lohan’s attorney argued that Lohan simply forgot to return the necklace. An argument Sautner quickly dismissed saying, “I see her intent [to steal] and I see a level of brazenness,” Sautner said, adding that a reasonable person would’ve returned the necklace immediately. Lohan waited 10 days before returning it, and only after she learned of an imminent search warrant to be executed on her home, Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers alleged. “It was like, ‘Let me see what I can get away with,’ ” Sautner said.
