Lindsay Lohan sentenced to 120 days jail

Hollywood wild child freed on $75,000 bail

Lindsay Lohan is facing up to another spell behind bars after being sentenced to 120 days jail.

The Mean Girls star was given the sentence for violating her probation on a 2007 drink-driving conviction, reports BBC News.

Lohan was freed on $75,000 (£45,413) bail and her legal team are planning to appeal against the sentence.

The violation relates to an accusation that the actress stole a necklace from a jewellery store earlier this year.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner sentenced Lohan to jail after deciding there was sufficient evidence of a probation violation.

However, the initial felony grand theft charge was reduced to a misdemeanour.

Lohan, who has been to jail three times previously, has signed up to star in forthcoming New York gangland biopic Gotti: Three Generations alongside John Travolta.
