Lindsay Lohan

Jail Scares the Crap Out of Me ... So I Chose Rehab

EXCLUSIVE

0318_lindsay_lohan_tmz

It's not a promising sign ... but we've learned Lindsay Lohan did NOT accept the plea deal of 90 days in lockdown rehab because she wants to beat substance abuse -- she chose it because it beats jail.

We broke the story ... prosecutors have offered Lindsay the 90-day lockdown rehab deal for weeks, but she consistently rejected it. Her change of heart came at the last minute -- 30,000 feet in the air as she belatedly flew to L.A. for her trial.

Lindsay is telling friends she actually likes the rehab option, because it will allow her to focus on herself without any distractions.

Here's the problem. Lindsay is still saying -- ADAMANTLY -- she does NOT have a substance abuse problem. People in the rehab world say ... it's virtually impossible for anyone in rehab to get better if they don't admit having a problem.

Lindsay has been down this route before, but the rehab experience has never stuck.

Does this really surprise anyone? She'll get nothing out of this 90 day stay (if she doesn't do something to get kicked out). She will phone it in. Until then she can party all she wants as long as she doesn't get caught. She also has 45 days to prove she has ENROLLED in a program (hope it has to be approved by the courts) and doesn't necessarily mean she has to be IN rehab by then.

In exchange forr providing Lindsay with a private jet, Dina Lohan agreed to work the hand job booth at the next seven Mr. Pink events.

If I burgle a jewlery store (she entered with intent) get couple DUI's, lie to the police, miss my court dates, slug people in bars.... Can I get a nice 90 day resort vacation instead of JAIL? I hope the judge and prosecuters know that they SUCK and have made a joke out of themselves and the legal system. BTW, who is paying for the club med?

Off to run errands. I am going to try creamsicle martini's today and I must get vanilla vodka. This site has turned me into an alcoholic-you are all out to get me. So sad. I am so special.

It is the know-it-alls on gossip sites that are so sure she has a drug problem.

From e-news : The cost varies so much but I would say that they start at 30,000 per month and go up from there says Dr. Damon Raskin, a consultant at the Cliffside Malibu treatment center. If she were going to Jail it would be the taxpayers paying for it. So being out of jail will cost her at least $100,000 in rehab fees.

OK one more time for you morons:
- you claim alcohol/drugs were not a factor in the accident.
- her lawyer wanted the Medical records excluded.
-Prosecutors have all along demanded a rehab component.

Logically (I know it's hard Vexer/Nicole but try) there HAD to be evidence of booze/drugs in the medical evidence. If no substances were involved then no judge would allow a rehab sentence.

We will never know because it never went to trial.

BTW Nicole- how many "Not Guilty" people are punished? Lilo is being punished therefore she was NOT "Not Guilty" QED

So, who pays for all this rehab? What a waste. She will be marking the calendar off each day until she can get out to party. And, Did he take her drivers license away? LOL Or did I miss that? And does she get to choose her Rehab Facility? What a joke.

She BEATS JAIL for now. This was her last get out of jail card. Next time she f***s up (and YOU know she will) it's into the pokey for 180+345.

LINDSAY LOHAN FAN FOREVER
As long as she does the 90 days then she beats jail!

If that was the case she would have taken jail. she didn't which indicates significant jail time was on the table.
