21-year-old actress Lindsay Lohan, the star of the 2005 comedy “Herby Fully Loaded,” faces one day in jail after pleading no contest to driving under the influence of alcohol last month.
Lohan who also pleaded guilty to being under the influence of cocaine, will spend three years on probation and is required to serve 10 days of community service, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court.
“It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs. Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case,” Lohan said in a statement.
She said she did things she was ashamed of: “I broke the law.”
“No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself. I thank God I did not injure others. I easily could have,” she added.
Los Angeles County prosecutors charged Lohan Thursday with seven misdemeanor counts, including being under the influence of cocaine, reckless driving and two counts of driving under the influence. The charges relate to two separate incidents, one in May in Beverly Hills and the other in July in Santa Monica.
Although cocaine was discovered in the 21-year-old’s car in May and in her pocket when she was booked into the Santa Monica jail in July, authorities declined to file drug-possession charges, citing the small amount of the narcotic.
If Lohan were to be convicted of another DUI, she would receive a mandatory 120-day jail sentence.
“I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so. I am taking these steps to improve my life. Luckily, I am not alone in my daily struggle and I know that people like me have succeeded. Maybe with time it will become easier. I hope so,” Lindsay added.
Jessica Alba is back with beau Cash Warren. The actress and the movie producer were pictured taking a romantic saunter along Pacific Palisades beach in California on Wednesday.
The couple, who had been together for two-and-a-half years, broke up last month, but now it seems that they are getting their relationship back on track.
“They were hugging and looked very happy together,” the source said.
The 26-year-old screen beauty – recently voted FHM magazine’s Sexiest Woman Alive – met Cash on the set of ‘Fantastic Four’ in 2005, in which Jessica starred and Cash worked as a director’s assistant.
Last month, the two had a breif split. The ‘Sin City’ actress – who reportedly called time on their two-and-a-half year romance during an emotional telephone conversation in July – apparently dumped Cash after getting tired waiting for him to propose.
“It’s kind of cold that the press is saying she was just finished with him, because it isn’t like that,” a pal said.
Jessica Alba’s on/off romance with Cash Warren appears to be back on, after the couple were photographed snuggling on a California beach. …
