October 16, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Lindsay Lohan is getting another chance. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel granted a request Friday morning by the "Mean Girls" star to extend her three-year probation another year.The 23-year-old was ordered to appear in a Beverly Hills courtroom for a progress report stemming from a 2007 drunk driving case. The court was informed that she was in violation of her probation. There were questions as to whether she regularly attended her alcohol education program classes.

According to Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley she completed half the program. Holley added that Lohan was in compliance, but missed some of the classes because the actress was making a movie in Texas.

Holley also said that Lohan has completed 15 of 26 individual alcohol classes, 13 of 26 group alcohol classes, 13 of 28 self-help sessions and all six education classes.

Judge Revel accepted her excuse, but added a year to her probation so she could make up the classes. Revel also scolded Lohan, saying she must notify the court and get permission before leaving the jurisdiction again.

"The Parent Trap" and "Georgia Rule" star nodded as Revel cautioned her about missing further classes. While in court, Lohan asked to travel to New York next week for a charity function. Revel approved the request but warned Lohan not to ask to leave the state or country then not return at the agreed upon time or to not come back earlier if possible.

The deputy district attorney made it clear if she violates any of this, she will be going to jail.

Another progress hearing has been scheduled for Dec. 15.
