Lindsay Lohan's luck just went from bad to worse.

E! News exclusively confirms that the "Liz & Dick" star's court case was just transferred to Judge Stephanie Sautner's courtroom. Sautner is the judge who presided over Lohan's jewelry theft case and supervised her subsequent probation.

After Lohan entered a plea in the theft case, Sautner sentenced her to community service requirements, gave her one year to complete them all and had her come in periodically in person to show that she had been complying.

When Sautner and Lohan last saw each other at her probation status hearing March 29, 2012, she ruled Lohan had successfully completed all the terms of her supervised probation and converted her to summary probation. But at that final hearing, Sautner sternly told Lohan, "The only thing you have to do is follow all laws. ... Live your life in a more mature way, stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work, OK?"

"I don't expect to see you again," the judge added. "You know what you have to do."

Not sure how Sautner is going feel now that Lohan subsequently has been charged with multiple misdemeanors.

Lohan's probation violation hearing is set for Wednesday. She's facing three misdemeanor counts involving a crash on Pacific Coast Highway in June. She was charged in the incident for willfully resisting, obstruction, providing false information to an officer and reckless driving. At the time of the accident, she was still on probation for her misdemeanor jewelry theft case. Due to the charges, the Los Angeles City Attorney moved to revoke her probation in December.

Her trial date is set for Feb. 27.

Making good on her promise to practice a series of dry runs at the "Good Morning America" studio in anticipation of returning to her anchoring chores sometime next month, Robin Roberts - and her alarm clock - got a healthy workout Thursday morning, People reports.

Roberts showed up at the studio at 5 a.m. after waking at 3:45 a.m., reports ABC, heralding the visit, which was Roberts' first since undergoing a bone marrow transplant Sept. 20.
