We’re not sure Lindsay Lohan could have expected anything other than a whole heap of fresh trouble at her court hearing yesterday (December 12, 2012), but she certainly didn’t help her case by not even showing up in Los Angeles – and reaped the punishment as a result.

Lohan’s judge was at the hearing – which relates to a car accident caused back in June by the troubled actress – and he was given pretty much what we could all have predicted: Lohan has had her probation, dating back to a jewelry heist case, revoked and could now face jail time. A hearing date has been set for January 15 of next year where she’ll learn her punishment for violating her probation. Sky News says that Lohan allegedly lied to police officers at the scene of the crash, which took place on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Lohan had hoped that this year would be the one where she finally got back in the headlines for the right reasons, and announced a big role playing Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick. However that fell flat with critics and viewers, and with other reports of debt, drinking and substance abuse it really is starting to look worrying for the 26 year-old. Adding salt into the wound is a report by TMZ that suggests a storage locker owned by the actress is to be auctioned off after she failed to make rent payment on it. It’s thought that expensive items in there include designer clothing and family heirlooms.
