It's like watching a train wreck. A Los Angeles judge ruled Tuesday that Lindsay Lohan has violated her parole in a 2007 drug case and sentenced her to 90 days in jail, reports AP: "Prosecutors said she failed to attend court-ordered alcohol education classes."

The LAT has more:

Judge Marsha N. Revel stated several instances over the last few years in which the actress lied about taking drugs and drinking. "It's like someone who cheats but doesn't think it's cheating if they don't get caught," Revel said.

Before sentencing, a tearful Lohan addressed the court, saying "as far as I knew I was in compliance with my programs.”

“I wasn’t trying to get special treatment," the actress said. "I have to provide for myself. I have to work. Having said that, I did everything to balance my jobs and showing up. I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life. It’s my career...I take responsibility for my actions. I’ve tried to do the best I can. It’s been such a long haul, I don’t want you to think that I don’t respect you.”
