Lindsay Lohan was in court today, and she continued to escape jail for now. The judge set the conditions of her release (to stay free on bail there's to be no drinking, and weekly drug testing, and she must attend those pesky alcohol classes and wear an alcohol monitoring bracelet) and set July 6 as the date for her formal probation violation hearing, according to TMZ. Her lawyer said evidence would be submitted to show Lohan tried her darndest to get home from Cannes in time for the original hearing date.

“I don't see what reason I would go to prison for,” LiLo says in a video posted on YouTube in advance of the hearing. "I've been more than compliant with everything having to do with the court system." Predictably, she also denies doing drugs, insists she doesn’t need rehab, calls her father insane…and starts crying when discussing having to miss her brother’s graduation today.
