Lindsay Lohan Checks Herself In

7/15/2010 11:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is apparently trying to blunt her 90-day jail sentence by moving in to a sober living house.

0221_media_removed-1
Lohan was spotted entering a facility in West Hollywood yesterday afternoon. Lohan's mother, sister and Sam Ronson were seen at the facility later that day.

As we first reported, attorney Robert Shapiro has been hired to help Lindsay either reduce or eliminate her jail sentence.

TMZ broke the story ... Shapiro is trying to push rehab immediately hoping it will satisfy Judge Marsha Revel.

Part of Lindsay's sentence was to check into rehab for 90 days after serving the jail time, but this appears to be an example of putting the cart before the horse.

UPDATE: Michael Lohan tells TMZ, "Why is that I had to cry from the mountain for Lindsay to listen to me, and now finally she is doing what I said?

I just pray they implement everything else I said, like getting Lindsay clean of all meds, picking all new friends and management, and that Dina put her motives aside and she go to counseling with Lindsay and me."

#99 is delusional, the judge will see through this ploy. At the "Sober living house" she gets her own pillows, blankie,cigerettes and visits from family & friends otherwise know as enablers. Can't wait for Tuesday, JAIL TIME!!

Sober Living is not rehab nor is it locked down. She is able to come and go as she pleases during the day and at night would have a curfew. Come July 20th she won't need a place to stay for a while. The state will provide it. Hope it happens if for no other reason than to show her she can't thumb her nose at justice forever................

Who the hell does she think she is??!! This just makes her look even more spoiled and sleazy to me: her and her twin mother. No wonder Shawn Chapman Holley quit: it must get really trying dealing with the "White Trash" of Hollywood. The Lohans' make the Klampetts' look endearing and intelligent.

I think the sentence was correct and she deserves to go to jail; had she been anyone else, Lindsay would have been taken into custody the moment she got back into the country after the stolen passport drama. I hope the judge is watching all the back door deals she is trying to finagle.

This doesn't mean she doesn't have to show up next Tuesday to turn her self in. If she doesn't I really hope the judge throws the other book at her.

@ Lindsay: Yeah you're right. Your probation violation was "shadowy", I mean, who could POSSIBLY expect an actress of your caliber (lol) with so much work (lol) and so many projects going on (lmao) to finish that HUGE amount of hour long classes (was it 13) within what, 9 months ? That judge is so unreasonable. You shouldn't go to jail.
So you drove drunk, high on coke, with the leftovers in your pants pocket ? So you hijacked a carload of people so you could chase your assistant ? What are they, wimps ? Geez, I don't get why people are SOOOOO mean to you, holding you to the same standard as normal average people... Don't they know WHO YOU ARE ? You're Lindsay Lohan, a superstar... That judge should be kissing your a$$, along with the prosecutor, the Right On program people, and everyone else who is picking on you...
ROTFLMMFAO
She is worthless, and delusional. And honestly, this is an attempt to get out of her jail sentence. Don't fall for it Marsha... LOCK HER UP ANYWAY ! ! !

OMG! I really think the judge is going to be pissed! I'm going to die laughing when she doesn't show up to court on the 20th to turn herself in and they issue a warrant and then go to the rehab facility and take her out in handcuffs while she's balling like a baby (kinda like Paris Hilton did)
OMG it's going to be funny.
Well lets just hope it turns out that way. She violated her probation and must be punished and then seek help. But either way she'll be able to score drugs and or alcohol of some kind in both places...we'll see what happens...waiting on Tuesday now....

A treatment facility is the best thing for Lindsey - if she actually wants to gets clean and sober. I hope that they restrict her to staying there for at least 90 days - no exceptions - no public appearances - no "social" outings - no work. If she's serious about being alive and actually living a quality life and a career, 90 days in a treatment facility will help get her on the right track. Jail time will only postpone her fate - sobriety or DEATH! The biggest problem with dealing with alcohol and drug abusers is that we try to punish them them by locking them up with no focus on helping them to quit. Make Lindsay do 90 days of strict rehab, and then require her to attend a 12 step program at least weekly for a few years = jail time will no good. Otherwise let her loose to finish the agonizing job of killing herself.

There's no way the court-appointed experts will agree this is the kind of place Ms. Lohan needs to be. It's not a "rehab." It's "transitional housing for people in recovery." Maybe Ms. Lohan will be appropriate for that kind of housing when she completes the 90 days of professional treatment the judge ordered her to receive. She's be better off getting her sentence out of the way, so she can get herself started on a real treatment program.

Shapiro should be ashamed.

Ya know, if she had just gone to jail that day, she'd probably be out in another week or so. Dumb ass.

It's pretty clear to me that this is just a legal maneuver to get out of going to jail.

Pickford Lofts look like a very lame recovery program, whereas someone like Lindsay needs a little shock. Just the fact that her family and friends were coming in and out like a hotel says that Pickford Lofts is a complete joke. Plus it is close enough that she can go down to the Sunset Strip and party.

She needs to go to jail and then into a real substance abuse/recovery program.

she's going to get out of serving jail time. I keep saying that over and over. It will be so much more fun to watch after the months of rehab, and all the positive PR that will be generated to try and jump start her finished career fails ahd she just goes back to being a drug addicted whore again.
