BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (CBS/AP) Spending too much time behind bars is pretty much what got Lindsay Lohan in trouble in the first place -- only now she'll be behind bars in a jail cell, which is sure to stall the embattled actress's movie-making plans at least for the short run.

Lohan was sentenced Tuesday to 90 days in jail and 90 days in a residential substance-abuse program, for violating her probation stemming from two separate 2007 cases of driving under the influence of cocaine and alcohol.

She is to surrender and begin her jail sentence July 20. Rehab will follow.

The punishment, levied by Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel, will keep Lohan from promoting "Machete," the Robert Rodriguez action film due in theaters in September.

Lohan's jail and rehab sentence will also delay production on "Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story," in which the 24-year-old actress plays the starring role.

Writer-director Matthew Wilder said after the ruling that he and his crew remain "100 percent behind Lindsay."

"We are proud to have this remarkable artist work on our film," he said.

Lohan's sentence may also prevent her from further promoting her new fashion line, 6126. The first items from the 280-piece collection are shipping out to department stores nationwide this month. Lohan was instrumental in the line's design and marketing plans and is featured in its promotional materials. Her business partner, Kristi Kaylor, did not immediately respond to phone and e-mail messages seeking comment.

Lohan may serve less than her 90-day sentence, due to jail overcrowding and a California program that credits inmates for good behavior, said Los Angeles Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore. Nonviolent female misdemeanor offenders typically serve about 25 percent of their sentences, he said.

Lohan will be taken to the Century Regional Detention Center - the same jail that housed Paris Hilton for 23 days in 2007 after she was found guilty of driving on a suspended license while on probation in an alcohol-related, reckless-driving case.
