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 have read on another website that there's a lockdown facility in Connecticut, which is close to New York, but, not in New York itself. I also read that although it may have been specified she has permission to do it in New York, apparently the judge's response to the request suggests she can do it in which ever state she wants to do it in.

Not saying that is what will happen, but my guess is the prosecution will monitor what happens next and probably have to approve the institution, etc. before submitting paperwork, etc. to prove she has not applied / been accepted anywhere.

So, let's see. Bobby Brown was sentenced to 55 days and served 9 hours.
So, if Lindsay is sentenced to 90 days that'll be about 12-14 hours?
That's nothing - and could mean she won't have to do any rehab. IMO, the judge should add the 180 days he threatened in court - then she'd be in for at least, what, a day? lol F'n ridiculous!

for the love of gawd, tmz, when you do a story that involves cali jail time, could you PLEASE include a statement whether the time will be subject to the sheriff's apparent discretion to let anyone he wants out due to overcrowding... cuz jail time for nonviolent offenders in cali is completely nonexistent unless the sheriff's hands are tied. please, with all of your connections, could you PLEASE at least include a statement as to whether or not this kind of custody is one where the sheriff can just let her out if he wants to, like he does with everyone else... PLEASE!

I've read here there is one in Connecticut and there has to be one or more in New Jersey. You can't tell me in the tri-state area there are not a few. Keep looking.

i guess if the plea agreement was entered into based on a material false statement by heller, the whole thing can be voided at the option of the prosecutor- and they can just go to trial. but, again, nothing means anything unless the sheriff's hands are tied- SO WHY DOES TMZ NEVER DISCLOSE WHETHER THESE CUSTODIES ARE AT THE DISCRETION OF THE SHERIFF TO RELEASE FOR OVERCROWDING?!?! IS THERE EVER A CIR***STANCE WHERE THE SHERIFF CAN'T JUST LET PEOPLE OUT WHENEVER HE WANTS?

Ketjo, if you didn't go back to the other thread,

Thanks so much for your response to my question about Sam Magid. It was astonishing information.

Do you (or anyone) know his age/race? (Since there are no photos left online). When you google his image, you just get photos of Lindsay, and one or two of Andrew Knight. It's downright spooky.

So what!! if she gets 90 days in jail I'll bet the farm she chooses to do the time in California. Bobby Brown did less than 12 hours for a 55 day sentence so she will do less than a day!

Heller might be a buffoon but he made the California Judiciary look dumber than a bag of hammers not that there were very many people who didn't already know.
