as a reduction in the severity of her charges.

L.A. County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner sentenced Lohan to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service for violating her probation by allegedly stealing a necklace from a Santa Monica jewelry store, the L.A. Times and other outlets report. The charge specifically related to the theft, however, was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor after Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, successfully argued that the value of the necklace was less than $2,500. The shop’s co-owner confirmed that the item was purchased for $850.

Lohan plans to appeal the sentence and is expected to be released on $75,000 bail. She is on probation stemming from her conviction in a 2007 DUI case.
