Actress Lindsay Lohan missed nine alcohol counseling sessions since December, when a judge ordered her to attend weekly classes or face jail, the program's director testified at Tuesday's probation revocation hearing.
While missing those sessions might result in Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel ruling Lohan had violated her probation, the judge ruled that another incident - Lohan's alleged consumption of alcohol last month - will not be viewed as a possible probation violation.
Lohan has apparently not missed a weekly counseling session since May 20, when Revel ruled that there was "probable cause to believe (Lohan) is in violation of probation" from a 2007 drunken driving conviction.
Lohan was ordered not to drink alcohol and an electronic bracelet was fitted on her leg on May 24 to detect if she did.
The SCRAM bracelet measured an alcohol level of 0.03 percent in the actress' body at midnight on June 7, but reported a zero reading four hours later, Revel said during Tuesday's hearing. The alert would be a bond violation, but not a probation violation, she said.
