Lindsay Lohan jailed for probation violation

Actress Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in prison for violating her probation in a 2007 drug case.

A judge in California said Lohan, aged 24, had failed to attend court-ordered alcohol education classes.

The judge ordered Lohan to surrender on 20 July to begin serving the jail term.

The actress had been on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemeanour drug charges and no contest to three driving charges.

"I did do everything I was told to do and did the best I could to balance jobs and showing up," she told the court.
