A judge sentenced Lindsay Lohan yesterday to three months in jail and a rehab program after finding the actress had violated the terms of her probation in a 2007 drug case. The actress immediately burst into tears after the ruling. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued the sentence after listening to testimony from employees of a court-mandated alcohol treatment program. Lohan missed numerous classes — seven since last December — which led to the judge’s harsh rebuke of Lohan moments after the “Mean Girls’’ star offered a tearful apology. “I did do everything I was told to do and did the best I could to balance jobs and showing up,’’ Lohan told the judge. “It wasn’t vacation, it wasn’t some sort of a joke.’’ Revel said she found Lohan’s apology insincere, comparing it to “somebody who cheats and thinks it isn’t cheating if she doesn’t get caught.’’ Lohan was not immediately taken into custody and will be permitted to surrender on July 20. She will have to wear an ankle alcohol monitor until then. Los Angeles County district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison said it was not uncommon for judges to allow defendants to turn themselves in at a later date so they can get their affairs in order. The sentence tripled the monthlong jail sentence prosecutors had sought for Lohan. The actress’ father and younger sister also burst into tears after the sentence was issued.
