London: Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan plans to appeal against the 90-day jail term given to her after she violated the terms of her probation by drinking.

The `Mean Girls` star is "petrified" about spending time behind bars, reports a news website.

"Lindsay`s lawyer only has to file a notice of appeal with Judge Marsha Revel, and under terms of California law - particularly misdemeanour probation appeals - the defendant must be granted bail," a source said.

"Judge Revel will be forced to give her bail pending the appeal, and Lindsay wouldn`t even have to appear in front of Judge Revel again," it added.

Lohan was Tuesday sentenced for violating the terms of her probation stemming from a 2007 DUI (Driving Under Influence) arrest. She will also be spending another three months in rehab.
