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.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
