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."

No one hopes she dies. I do hope she gets either a few months in jail or forced rehab. Nothing else will save her life.

I hope Lindsay gets locked up in a smelly NY jail for 90 days, and her many supporters and fans can have a cow

L.A. has a lockdown facility. It's no CIRQUE LODGE, or PASSAGES. The doors are locked, and you may not leave. It's basically jail, but with all-day rehab.

I don't know about NY, but I believe CA does have such facilities- or at least dual diagnosis drug rehab facilities that deal with drug addiction and psychiatric problems. Many psychiatric hospitals have detox programs for addicts and those places are secure, it's where suicidal patients are kept from hurting themselves and others.

Good, I'd love to see this person with ZERO interest in anything legal locked up in a NY prison, where it makes California look like a cake walk. Oh, wait....California IS a cake walk.

She could just do it in California instead. The judge really doesn't care where the facility is located as long as it satisfies the sentence.

If they don't let her serve the time in a non lockdown facility in NY. Then she will take the jail it's ad-seg anyway.

Good riddance!    

Oh, so THIS is why Crackie seemed so unconcerned with doing 90 days in a NY 'rehab' vs. 30 days of 'house arrest' (in what, a hotel?) with a drug and alcohol detecting SCRAM. Sounds like this is also why Crackie stuck with Side Show Heller and all his lies, witness tampering, incompetence, and underhanded dealings. They are cut from the same criminal cloth, of course. Now they may both be in serious hot water! Well, someday people will get the clue that if you deal with these grifters you will pay a steep price for your stupidity.

Does anyone think she's ever going to spend more than a few days in jail? She belongs in jail for at least a few months, if not longer! She's a liar and her lawyer is a liar! What a joke the judicial system is in California.

Oh yeah hearing when the Judge clearly says the standard no drug conditions that she had first in 2007 -

Nothing about no drinking alchol or being banned from nightclubs like ML lied about .
