Lindsay Lohan

NY 'Lockdown Rehab' Sentence

NO SUCH THING!

We have made a slew of calls after posting this story.  Everyone we spoke with says ... there is only 1 rehab facility in New York that is truly lockdown, where patients cannot get out and guards keep them in -- Willard Drug Treatment Campus, operated by NY's Dept. of Correctional Services in collaboration with the Division of Parole.  In order to qualify for admission, the patient MUST have a prior felony.  Lindsay has never been convicted of a felony, so she doesn't qualify -- and this is according to Linda Foglia, the spokesperson for the NY State Dept. of Correctional Services.  Short story .... contrary to what Mark Heller told prosecutors, Lindsay cannot do lockdown rehab in New York.

Now we know why Lindsay Lohan was so nonchalant when she was sentenced to 90 days in a "lockdown" rehab facility -- It doesn't exist in New York ... and it's possible Lindsay could now go to JAIL as a result.

We've done some digging, contacting numerous rehab facilities in NY, and we're getting the same story from EVERYONE -- rehab facilities do NOT force patients to stay.  In fact, an official from the New York State agency that regulates rehab facilities tells us lockdown rehab does not exist in NY.

None of the facilities have guards that block access out.

As for Lindsay ... she has a history of leaving rehab, even if the program requires her to stay inside.  Two cases in point -- sources say Lindsay frequently snuck out of Cirque Lodge in Utah.  And, of course, there's Betty Ford, where Lindsay allegedly got into a physical fight with an attendant who was about to blow the whistle on her for sneaking out.

Law enforcement sources connected with Lindsay's lying-to-cops case tell TMZ ... prosecutors offered the plea deal based on the representation of Lindsay's lawyer, Mark Heller, that New York had lockdown rehab facilities.

After we placed calls today ... we're told prosecutors are now checking to see if Heller's representation was false.  One well-placed source said this:  "The sentence was actually 90 days in custody, and lockdown rehab would satisfy that.  If there's no such thing, then she'll go to jail for 90 days."

good go to jail, its about time. I have no sympathy for a person who continues to do 'bad things' after being given so many changes. She just doesn't care, stop giving her chances

Please.... there will be a big commotion and then it will be switched to California. The end. I honestly think at this point EVERYONE is hoping she dies. I wonder who has life insurance policies on her besides both her parents, every sibling, her publicist, her manager, and probably her "friends".

Put this tramp in jail for a very long time, she still was given a slap on the wrist by the judge and she still does not get it. It makes the legal system seem like a joke,of course in California it is, unless you can con your way to obtain a lawyer to represent her that knows she won't pay you.

Lindsay and her "legal" team lied to the DA & Judge? They would never! Bah ha ha Just another snub by her toward the CA judicial system. Hope she gets charged with lying again.

Does it really matter? Nothing EVER happens to her. The Justice System in California cater to her and she ALWAYS gets off. What's the deal with her always getting off? Bobby Brown goes to jail yet look at this chick.

She knows that 90 days actually means 90 minutes in jail terms.

I read something similar yesterday. The article stated that the term "lock down" was inaccurate because no treatment centers actually lock the doors. The only type of facilities that lock the doors are phsyciatric hospitals.

She is never going to go to jail. For anything. Ever. She could kill a family of five driving drunk and they let her off with a warning.

Paris Hilton went to a lockdown rehab (or just a kind of closed boarding school) in Provo, Utah. I am informed that there also is a terrible place in La Verkin, Utah people remember in their nightmares several decades later to a point that it restricts their lives. So lockdown rehabs exist, but maybe only for minors.
