Lindsay Lohan

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."

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

I woke up cheerful and happy and after catching up, I'm truly upset for the Ladies. Between Luv's Mom, Alicia's 'furbaby' and Firefly's chocolate lab Cocoa, I'm a WRECK. I too, had a chocolate lab Coco, my favorite pet. Prayers and good thoughts to all.

Ok, on a much lighter note, lets think good thoughts and think arrest!!

So you say, but something tells me that if there is no lockdown rehab then she'll simply go free.

Makes sense now. Of COURSE she chose this instead of SCRAM. There IS no lockdown in NY which means a day back in court and another slap on the wrist. They will cut her a break since she can't 'possibly' actually do the sentence and it is not HER FAULT after all. Give up, this mess is going to die if somebody does NOT step in with some sense that keeps her from getting off scott free all the time.

i think i figured out why she says she didn't lie to the cops and every time she gets it to fights she says it never happened. she must have some thing like split personality disorder or she's just a bipolar liar
