(Newser) – A judge is sending Lindsay Lohan to jail for 90 days after ruling she violated probation in a 2007 drug case by failing to attend court-ordered alcohol education classes. Lohan immediately burst into tears after the sentencing. She was not required to immediately surrender but will have to turn herself in on July 20. She will also be required to enter an in-patient rehab program after her release from jail.

The ruling came during a hearing set for the star after she missed a court date in May. She has been required to wear an ankle alcohol monitor since then. The monitor issued an alert after Lohan attended the MTV Movie Awards and after-parties. Prosecutors called it an "alcohol-related" violation.
