Listen to the story

In 2007 Lindsay Lohan pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to two drunk driving charges.

She went to jail but spent only 84 minutes behind bars. She was also ordered to complete a series of alcohol education courses.

But she failed to do them on time and missed a number of meetings. When the judge announced that she was now sentencing Lohan to 90 days in jail, the actress burst into tears.

She isn't required to go to jail until July 20th but when she's released she'll have to enter an inpatient rehabilitation programme.
