DUI Judge orders Lindsay Lohan to attend 6 months of weekly alcohol ed classes

A judge overseeing Lindsay Lohan’s 2007 DUI conviction has ordered that she attend six months of weekly alcohol education classes starting in the new year. Back in October, Lohan appeared in court to explain why she hadn’t yet completed her probation requirements. Instead of throwing a thick, hard legal book at Lohan (I’m sorry if that sounded dirty, I was going for strict), the judge ruled that Lindsay could have an extra year to complete her probation. Why didn’t Lindsay get the same judge that sent Paris Hilton to jail for over a month for driving on a suspended license? That would have only been fair.

Anyway, Lindsay has now been ordered to start alcohol education as soon as possible and have it completed by July. It sounds like a small price to pay for two DUI incidents in one year, including a high speed chase in a stolen car with unwilling passengers pleading for their lives.

Lindsay Lohan may have been “in compliance” with the terms of her DUI probation, but a judge ordered the star to step up her alcohol education program classes, Usmagazine.com confirms.

I am going to order [that] this has to be done. It’s been long enough,” Judge Marsha Revel said at L.A. Superior Court in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

Lohan, 23, who did not appear in court, must now start “attending every single week” in order to fulfill the more than six months of program time necessary by Revel’s deadline of July 15, 2010.

“This has to be a top priority whether she has a job somewhere else or doesn’t or something else comes up,” Revel said. “This has to be done once a week.”

The judge reiterated that Lohan’s other projects should not take precedence over her alcohol education program.

“Right now, the other things will take second place and this will take first place,” Revel said. (The next hearing date to assess Lohan’s progress has been scheduled for Feb. 18.)

It’s very hard to keep up with all of Lindsay’s legal issues, but back in March there was a warrant out for her arrest because she violated probation by ditching alcohol education classes. The warrant was eventually dropped once her lawyer showed that she was attending once in a while. Lindsay was unable to successfully complete the terms of her alcohol classes due to “personality conflicts” with the teacher, who reported her for missing three out of 21 classes.

That was in March, and Lindsay was ordered back then to enroll in a new class. Then she was told again in October in court that she would have to take classes and here we are in December yet she still hasn’t done it. Tell me again how it is that Paris Hilton got 45 days in jail for one barely over the limit DUI and two counts of driving on a suspended license while Lohan hasn’t seen the inside of a cell yet. Someone really needs to throw Lohan in jail if she doesn’t complete her probation requirements. It’s been over two years.

    I wonder why she isn’t on some kind of probation that she gets tested for alcohol every week since she has had two DUIs within months. She seems to out of it, to even comply to these terms and will probably wind up not doing it and going to jail anyway.

  2. YT says:

    If he throws her in jail, she would be released the same day because of overcrowding, not being a hardened criminal, etc. She is actually getting more “punishment” this way, though it is doubtful she has learned anything in her classes. If she doesn’t comply this time, she can still go to jail and have her into-and-out-of-jail photo ops.

  3. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow, she finally puts together a cute outfit and then ruins it with those ridiculously destroyed nylons.

    “Lindsay was unable to successfully complete the terms of her alcohol classes due to “personality conflicts” with the teacher”

    And once again, Lohan has an excuse for her behavior. It’s the teasher’s fault for doing his/her job. If you don’t show up for the classes, you get reported. Done.

    The only personality conflict in this situation is Blohan behaving like a spoiled, self-entitled b*tch

  5. Firestarter says:

    I guess she had personality conflicts with the teacher due to her entitlement issues, as well as denying she has a problem to begin with. Of couse she is going to have conflicts with the people who don’t cater to her and allow her to get away with spoiled actor antics.

    If any of us would have done what she did in the first place, our punishments would have been a whole lot stronger.

    Funny how her trip to India happened right before this court date. Obviously to make Lindsay more sympathetic in the courts eyes “Oh my, she helped save 40 children all in a days work!” Pathetic the lengths she goes to for attention and to keep herself out of jail, which is where she belongs. The rest of us would be behind bars, why not her?

  6. Ethel says:

    She has been given too many chances. If this were a “real person” they would have been sentenced to some jail time for all the missed classes. If she missed all the classes before, whose to say she’s going to attend this set? Another celebrity gets away with shit that any other citizen wouldn’t. And think of the court costs she is racking up for the State of California? Little girl grow up.

  7. A says:

    In response to Diva, a weekly alcohol test would be pointless. Alcohol leaves the system in about a day.

    In response to Lindsay Lohan’s haggard face, what judge could look into that skeletal, red-eyed horror show and not sentence her to six months in REHAB?

    Fuck jail. Really. Lock her ass up in
    serious rehab for a long time. …And then send her to jail, because she still totally deserves that, but if she goes in this state, she’ll probably OD in there and die.

  8. lucy2 says:

    Landing her sorry butt in jail might be the best thing for her. Alcohol ed is clearly not doing any good for her. Either serious jail time for something (lots of rumors about her sticky fingers) or a serious OD are the only things that will likely get through to her.
    In her world, there are no consequences for her actions. Who gets an extension because of “personality conflicts”? I’m sorry, she’s an adult, if there are problems with the teacher, oh well! Suck it up and deal with it, like everyone else does.

  9. audrey says:

    She could(should!) floss her teeth with her tights.

  10. Lantana says:

    Were those the same pantyhose from the night before or do they make them like that now?

  11. bondbabe says:

    Amen Ethel, my thoughts exactly!! At least the judge ordering her to weekly alcohol classes is a helluva lot better than her so-called “parents.” I seriously think Dina and Michael are not right in the head. If anyone other than a “star” had racked up as much trouble by age 23 as Lindsay has, you can bet they would be in rehab, locked up, paying fines and under close legal scrutiny.

  12. Susette says:

    Maybe it’s the word “class” that’s a problem. Lohans don’t like attending class. I bet if they called it an alchol education party, she’d be all over it.

    Seriously, though, who the hell is her judge? Even in celebrity justice terms, it’s getting ridiculous.

  13. la chica says:

    why would she wear ripped leggings to an event promoting her leggings line? her judgment is so stupidly impaired.

  14. NicoleAM says:

    She’s being ordered to take alcohol ed classes, so the court is aware she has a prob w/ alcohol. Why don’t they test her for drugs (at least) on a weekly basis? Based on how she’s been looking, there’s no way she’d test negative. And aren’t there pap shots of her still drinking? WTF? Throw her ass in jail.

  15. connie says:

    in response to A: most weekly alcohol tests are not scheduled. You have to call a number every morning to find out if you’re required to go in. It is still possible to get around this but at least makes it a little more difficult

  16. OMG I absolutely love this site. heart XOXOX.
