Judge orders Lindsay Lohan back to rehab

Updated at 1:50 p.m. ET

In a court hearing this morning to again address Lindsay Lohan's probation violation, a judge ordered the troubled starlet to stay in rehab until January 3, but she will not be sent to jail and, according to TMZ.com, will have her SCRAM alcohol monitoring bracelet removed.

According to the Associated Press, prosecutors had sought a six-month jail stint for Lohan, but judge Elden Fox instead opted to send her back to rehab one more time. Lohan cried after the judge delivered the sentence.

"You are an addict, I hope you understand that," Fox told Lohan.

Dad Michael Lohan was spotted milling around the courthouse. No word on whether he was there at Lindsay's invitation.

In September, Lohan was taken into custody and spent a few hours in jail after testing positive for cocaine. She went directly from jail to the Betty Ford Center, where she's been since and had hoped to return after today's hearing. Wish granted, Lilo.
