Why is Lindsay Lohan
going to jail? Well, there's a few reasons, most of which have to do with her past troubles. She got a second DUI in 2007, and as a result she was given 3 years of probation, ordered to complete an alcohol education program, serve one day in jail, and complete 10 days of community service. Well, she violated those terms and is now paying the price.

Lindsay's probation was extended by a year in 2009 because she failed to go to substance abuse classes, and then, in May 2010, she failed to make her DUI progress report hearing because she was in France. So, a bench warrant was issued for her arrest, but it was rescinded after one of her reps posted bail. Then, on May 24, when Lohan did show in court, she was told she had to go to weekly alcohol education classes, wear a SCRAM bracelet, and undergo regular drug tests in order to stay out of jail.
At her next hearing on July 6, it was determined that LiLo hadn't gone to all of her mandated classes and had indeed violated the terms of her probation in the past, so she was sentenced to 90 days in jail, followed by 90 days of rehab. She surrendered to authorities today, July 20. It is thought that she'll spend only 23 days in the Lynwood Correctional Facility, due to overcrowding.
