Michael Lohan Sentenced to Probation

Michael Lohan at courtLike daughter, like father: Michael Lohan has been sentenced to two years probation.

The 51-year-old showbiz patriarch - who is the father of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan - entered a plea of no contest to four domestic violence charges in a Tampa, Florida court yesterday, but escaped a possible four-year jail sentence.

"He will not serve any jail time," said his lawyer Michael Perry.

In addition to probation, Michael - who was arrested following an altercation with former fiancee Kate Major on October 25 - will spend four months working at the Teen Challenge International program and must undertake domestic violence classes and his lawyer hopes he will "benefit" from the sentence.

"I believe he was pleased with the result, he should be. It was a good result and it will benefit him," said his lawyer.
