Update: Lohan could get jail time after January hearing

Actress Lindsay Lohan could get as many as 240 days behind bars if the judge rules against her at a probation violation hearing.

A Los Angeles judge has officially set a probation violation hearing to address charges that the actress lied to police officers after crashing her Porsche in June.

The "Liz and Dick" star was not in court for the arraignment on Wednesday morning, Dec. 12, when Commissioner Jane Godfrey revoked her probation for a previous theft charge.

Lohan's longtime attorney Shawn Holley faced Godfrey, who scheduled a hearing which Lohan will attend, for Jan. 15, that Lohan is expected to attend. The actress faces more than 240 days behind bars if the charges stick.

Holley refused to talk to reporters and photographers outside court, other than to wish them, "happy holidays," but one question did raise a smile when a journalist asked the lawyer, "How does it feel to be in court all the time?" referring to her client's many run-ins with the law.
