Lindsay Lohan likely to get house arrest for theft

Thursday May 12, 2011

Lindsay Lohan has pleaded 'no contest' to stealing a $2,500 necklace and been sentenced to 120 days in prison.

But because of overcrowding, the actress will most likely serve a fraction of her four-month sentence at her home in California.

Lindsay – not present at the hearing – was ordered to surrender to Lynwood Jail on June 17.

It will then be determined whether she will be fitted with an ankle bracelet and return home.

Even though the 24-year-old may serve her sentence from her Venice pad, it's thought she will be released after around two weeks.

The judge has specified that if given house arrest, Lindsay will not be allowed to serve her 480 hours of community service during that time.

Meanwhile, a probation report also released on Wednesday has revealed that the star failed a random alcohol test after leaving rehab.

According to the document, Lindsay had been drinking when she snuck out of the Betty Ford clinic in December – the night she scuffled with one of the centre's employees.

And she tested positive for alcohol in February, one week after her assistant surrendered the allegedly stolen necklace to the police.
