Lindsay Lohan

NY 'Lockdown Rehab' Sentence


3/21/2013 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

She'll just get the judge to revise the sentence to a non-lockdown facility. Problem solved. Lindsay doesn't do lockdowns or jail time.

Enough TMZ!! Stop posting stories about how she is absolutely going to jail this time. She never does and you are always wrong. You post these stories every week and she has gotten a break every single time. Its such a tease to think this time she is going to get what she deserves and then nothing. Forget it. Shes never going to jail.Ever.

Well then let her go to a non lockdown and if she leaves without permission as in group outings ect then violate her that is all. Or find a lockdown in Cali for her to rehab at. Sending her to jail for 90 days will do nothing. Bobby Brown just got out in 9 hours on a 55 day. Keep her in rehab.

tmz are a bunch or morons. the judge never said it was full lockdown. all he said is she would not get day passes. even the prosecutor said it doesn't have to be a hard core lockdown so she can go to any rehab in NY.

she gets away with alot. she's still human ,but she mocks the court system and everyone who tries to help her. her final outcome maybe death . i don't understand why she dosen't care enough about herself to do something to make her life worth something. why dosen't she want to help herself? will all her money and time she could help people who are poor. she could go back to school and earn a degree and help people , i don't think being a nurse would be good for her. but maybe something else. she needs to think of others for once. why dosen't she want help? i wondered why she looked smug. her final outcome maybe death , she can't do this for the next 50 years can she? and live?

direct quote from Terry White from NYDN:

“It doesn't have to be locked like a correctional facility. It doesn’t have to be that hard-core. But it has to be a place where if she leaves, they notify us,” Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White told the Daily News on Tuesday.

“She has to follow the program and can’t leave the property,” White, a key prosecutor behind her rehab instead of jail plea deal, said. “If she leaves, it’s a violation.”

Heller probably knew, so, he should go to jail, too.

She's still going to be in a treatment facility. She just can't leave and must follow everything or she's fvcked. I didn't expect her to be locked inside the building.

526 days ago


Please tell me it'll be in NY and their jails aren't so overcrowded that she'll be out in 20 minutes.
