American has grown tired of waking up hearing the next saga of Lindsay Lohan. CNN reports that after failing her drug test, Lohan will spend more time in jail as she awaits her probation revocation hearing in October. The Los Angeles judge wasn’t giving any leniency today as he told Lohan she was going back to jail.
We’ve seen leniency from judges to famous actors and actresses in the past. Whether it was because of danger or already packed jails, we’ve watched famous people get off from their crimes. Short sentences that often do not make the person really make changes to their life. What will make a person make changes is when they are in a courtroom with the presence of a judge; as we know that leniency can only come from the judge. If he doesn’t give it, we are out of luck.
Although I’ve never been in a courtroom with a judge staring at me, I can only imagine how difficult it would be. Lindsay Lohan was probably nervous and praying for a miracle. What she will have to do now is pray that she can make some life changes so she doesn’t end back there in the same place. Bad habits are hard to break and she obviously needs to admit she has a problem. Has that happened yet? Only she knows.
For Lindsay Lohan, leniency has run out. We all know that once you’ve been placed on probation, it is up to the individual to actually abide by the judges command. No one can make a person not drink or do drugs. Of course, we all know it’s against the law to do drugs, so of course it’s wrong and deadly to do drugs.
Yet, here we are again. Lindsay Lohan is back in the same place; back in jail. Will she learn this time? Will she finally hit rock bottom and get her life in order? The truth is that only Lindsay can answer the difficult questions; she must decide when she decides to get her life in order. She needs drug free friends, alcoholic free friends, and family who will help her through these dark days.
For Lindsay, that could mean getting away from the media. No interviews with family, no front page pictures of her out partying. Lindsay has discovered the hard way how to build her life, get free of her inner demons. Let’s pray she learns soon!
