Lindsay Lohan's probation extended

The Associated Press, Friday, October 16, 2009, 10:40am (PDT)

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lindsay Lohan is getting another chance.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel granted a request Friday morning by the "Mean Girls" star to extend her three-year probation another year.

The 23-year-old actress was placed on probation in 2007 after she pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to two counts of drunken driving and one count of reckless driving. She spent 84 minutes in jail.

Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, asked the judge for the probation extension because she said Lohan has been busy with work and unable complete her substance abuse treatment program. She is scheduled to return for a progress hearing Dec. 15.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan has another date with a judge.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel has ordered the "Mean Girls" star to appear in a Beverly Hills, Calif., courtroom Friday morning.

The 23-year-old actress was placed on three years of probation in 2007 after she pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of cocaine, and no contest to two counts of drunken driving and one count of reckless driving. She spent 84 minutes in jail.

It is unclear why Lohan has been ordered to appear. The judge's order was made during a routine progress report hearing on Wednesday.

Court records show that no warrant has been issued, and they do not reflect a probation violation has occurred.

E-mails to Lohan's publicist and attorney were not immediately returned Thursday.

Lohan's probation has not been without incident. Since January, the actress has escaped further punishment twice after her substance abuse treatment program notified the court she had violated the rules.

Both instances were described as misunderstandings.
