Lindsay Lohan’s probation was revoked at a hearing Wednesday. The actress was escorted from the Los Angeles courtroom in handcuffs.

Judge Stephanie Sautner said Lohan was in violation of her probation for missing nine community service appointments at the Downtown Women’s Center.

“There has been violation after violation,” Sautner told Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley. “Probation is a gift, not a right.”

Dressed in a white sleeveless dress and gold pumps, the actress remained silent throughout the hearing. She denied any probation wrongdoing Friday on Twitter: “I am working hard and fulfilling my obligations every single day, to the court as well as myself.”

Lohan’s bail was set at $100,000. Her spokesperson Steve Honig told the Associated Press she posted bail immediately after her appearance.

After Lohan bails out, the judge has ordered that she do a minimum two days or 16 hours a week of community service at the L.A. County Morgue until her violation hearing, Nov. 2. That hearing could determine if Lohan returns to jail, a sentence the city prosecutor has asked for.

Holley assured the judge Lohan would begin the work Thursday.

Lohan was dismissed from the Women’s Center and began serving her community service at the Red Cross. The judge said she will not count the hours of service Lohan performed there because she did not approve the switch.

Sautner ordered Lohan to serve 480 hours of community service and 120 days in jail this April. She served 35-days of house arrest due to jail overcrowding. The 25-year-old’s legal troubles stem from a 2007 DUI case and a misdemeanor theft charge.
