Before Lindsay Lohan was sentenced in court to 90 days in jail Tuesday at her probation violation hearing, she took an opportunity to speak to the Judge Marsha Revel. Lohan attempted to convince the judge that she really didn’t understand that skipping out on her alcohol education classes to globe-trot was a violation of her probation.

To add to the drama, LiLo threw in some theatrical tears that put Chris Brown’s BET “show” to shame. (Note to Brown, find out who Lindsay’s acting coach is for next time.) A video of Lohan’s speech for the judge is below:

I am not shocked that Judge Marsha Revel was not moved by Lohan’s tears. To be honest, I was surprised that she didn’t tell her to cut the act. It’s hard to find the tears of an actress to be sincere. Especially under these circumstances; and especially when Lohan spent much of the hearing making these faces:

So, do you think Lindsay’s tears were those of a truly remorseful young woman? Or were they a last ditch attempt to avoid jail time?
