Lindsay Lohan given more time to complete treatment program

Lindsay Lohan

A Beverly Hills judge today extended Lindsay Lohan's probation for a year in connection with a 2007 drunk-driving case.

The judge made the decision to extend probation after learning that Lohan had not completed required treatment programs because she was filming a movie out of state. Lohan's attorney said the filming is done and that she can finish the programs.

The court appearance stems from a 2007 incident in which she crashed her car on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

She eventually agreed to a plea bargain that called for probation, time in a treatment program and community service.

Just another case of money doing ALL the talking...
Nobody else gets breaks like these stupid celebrities...

I'm sure the judge would do the same for anyone.

In the above picture unless they happen to change it on me, Lindsay is a beautiful freckle faced and glamorous face with a ton of life and energy within. Don't know how long ago this picture was taken, but it is a testament to a life lived in the fast lanes in a high octane environment shrouded with drugs, late nights and shady characters. It starts show, moves insidiously and can envelope a person rather quickly. It plays no favorites on its victims. Everybody is game. Welcome to the big times.
