A lapse in Lindsay Lohan’s health insurance – because she’s not been working in the past year – has prevented her from paying for the psychological counseling ordered as part of her probation, her lawyer revealed in court yesterday. “Maybe she knows somebody who can help out,” Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner said, warning Lohan she had 21 days to sign up for counseling.
Judge Sautner ordered the actress to appear in court Thursday so she could review the actress’ progress on meeting the requirements of her probation for a shoplifting conviction and two older drunk driving convictions.
Lohan scribbled a note to her lawyer during the hearing saying she believed she could raise the cash soon to enter counselling. The judge chided Lohan for only completing 33 of the required 480 hours of community service so far. If it’s not finished within a year, she could go to jail, she said. CNN.com
