Lindsay Lohan

NY 'Lockdown Rehab' Sentence

NO SUCH THING!

EXCLUSIVE

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."

I say let her go to a regular non locked rehab and when she leaves early violate her probation and give her 90 days. There are detox wards inside locked psych facilities in CA but usually for 2-3 days and you can still leave if the MD okays it. The only true locked in rehabs I have heard of are inside the jail itself. In your in the jail rehab there is no leaving early for good behavior. No oh I'm sober now I can leave.

Translation . . . she'll go to jail for 90 minutes . . . again. She went in and got booked already; guess they'll give her "time served" for that, so she may do about 20 minutes. They should just stop bringing charges against her; she will never pay until it's with either her life or someone else's.

Wouldn't have been better to make that "slew of calls" BEFORE you electronically published the story? You know, verification and all that kind of stuff?

I say just sentence her to a month at my place, she'll be so scared she'll never do anything illegal again....or that could just be my excuse to try to bang her.

Why does her rehab have to be in New York? If you're locked down, what difference does it make what state you're in?

I'm going to laugh my f**king ass off if Heller's incompetence means she now has to go to jail.

I am so fed up with these idiot celebs who repeat offend and never get more than some pathetic 9 hour jail term or a joke of a rehab deal with community service. The girl is not going to change. She is too far gone. She needs to hear the word NO more.

Geez-us! Lindsay has gone from lying to the cops to lying to Judges. No wonder Lindsay's Dad ran Heller off the courthouse steps!

But it's a nonstory regardless. They have until May 2 to show she's enrolled. Either they will or they won't. It's understandable TMZ wants to keep LL in the gossip news. She's a popular target. But at least write about events that occur instead of trying to make up scenarios.
