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.

While it is true that rehab is a worthwhile thing for some....those who admit they need it, it has proven a waste of time for those who "know" they dont have a problem and are being forced to go there.This will prove to be yet another failure in her long list of failures. Unfortunately it will take a disaster to make her see that she is an alcoholic and perhaps a drug addict. I only hope the only person she kills in the inevitable accident that is her life is herself, and not some innocent person because anyone can see this is where this is heading and at high speed...

It's very clear rehab isn't going to work on this person. She's tried it 7-8 times in just a few years. That's absurd! What LL needs is a long stint in jail. That's the only thing that seems to make an impression on this very arrogant young woman.

She should have took the 30 days of house arrest. Way better deal than 90 in rehab... Lohan logic I guess lol

Well she isn't entirely wrong, there were no substances involved in the car crash, so while she dos certainly have problems, I doubt drug use is one of them, frankly i'm surprised rehab was even offered as a plea deal to begin with.

I hope she fails rehab & they lock her up... She's had so many 'get out of jail' cards... If this was me I would of been locked up as soon as I said no to the 1st rehab choice...

Yep, she's gonna fail real fast and be back in front of the judge real quick. She acts as if this will be another "piece of cake". It's gonna be hard ass, miserable work. And with her ****ty disposition she'll make it that much more hard. She is an idiot. She sure looked pissed she had to choose any of the options yesterday. Was she even coherent? She can choose jail next week.

Lindsay Lohan Turned Down 30 Days House Arrest Deal — Refused To Wear Drug And Alcohol Testing SCRAM!
Posted on Mar 18, 2013 @ 16:17PM | By jenheger

SPLASH NEWS

During the last minute plea talks between Lindsay Lohan‘s attorney, Mark Heller and prosecutor, Terry White, Judge James Dabney offered up the possibility of a 30 day custodial sentence — which the 26-year-old could of served under house arrest — but Lohan turned it down flat because it would of meant having to wear an alcohol & drug monitoring SCRAM bracelet, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“Judge Dabney offered the possibility of a 30 day house arrest sentence but insisted that as part of the deal Lindsay would have to wear a SCRAM bracelet which detects any consumption of alcohol or drugs,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “Prosecutors were absolutely stunned Lohan turned down the offer, and chose instead to go to a lock down rehab for 90 days!”

As previously reported, the plea deal that was eventually agreed upon — which saw Lohan plead no contest to two misdemeanor charges of lying to cops – includes the actress undergoing 90 days of rehab in a lock down treatment center, completing 18 months of psychological counseling and serving 30 days of community service, which can be carried out in New York where Lohan is currently residing.

Despite escaping a custodial sentence, Judge James Dabney made sure Lohan understood that she was not getting off lightly — warning the bedraggled looking actress that if she violated one single term of the agreed upon plea deal, he would immediately, no hesitation, send her to jail for six months.
“I will send you to jail for six months. I will max you out, we won’t be having these conversations,” Judge Dabney vowed.

Something, the source believes, will very likely happen in the near future given Lohan’s past behavior.

“It’s only a matter of time, like days, until Lindsay violates the terms of the plea deal… guaranteed,” the source predicts. “Given Lindsay’s history when it comes to the judicial system and her lack of compliance, well, the day is coming when she will be headed to jail for a very, very long time.”
