BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - A judge sentenced Lindsay Lohan Tuesday to three months in jail and a rehab program after finding the actor had violated the terms of her probation in a 2007 drug case.

The actor immediately burst into tears after the ruling.

Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued the sentence after listening to testimony from employees of a court-mandated alcohol treatment program.

Lohan missed numerous classes - seven since December - which led to the judge's harsh rebuke of Lohan moments after the Mean Girls star offered a tearful apology.

"I did do everything I was told to do and did the best I could to balance jobs and showing up," Lohan told the judge. "It wasn't vacation, it wasn't some sort of a joke."

Lohan was not immediately taken into custody and will be permitted to surrender on July 20.

Revel revoked Lohan's probation and ordered her to wear an ankle alcohol monitor after the starlet missed a court date in May. She was promoting a film project at the Cannes Film Festival at the time and claimed her passport was stolen.

The monitor issued an alert after the actor attended the MTV Movie Awards and after-parties last month. Revel said the device registered a 0.03 blood alcohol level at the time.

Lohan spent 84 minutes in jail in 2007 after she pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and one count of reckless driving.

The plea came after a pair of high-profile arrests earlier that year. Lohan was sentenced to three years of probation but had to ask for a yearlong extension in October after she failed to complete her alcohol-education courses on time.
