Lindsay Lohan

NY 'Lockdown Rehab' Sentence

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."

If I got a dollar ever time TMZ said she was going to jail, I'd be a millionaire.

I wouldn't be shocked if there's no such thing in NY state. Of course Lindsay is trying to get out of being "locked" into anything. She's lied repeatedly to get out of trouble. What would change now? She's not responsible for her actions so I'm sure she'll have several more trips to court/rehab.
Where I live in OH they have this for felony cases, it is called NEOCAP, which was created by a group of judges. I didn't think this was commonplace in many states.

Yet another false "Lindsay could go to jail!" alarm from TMZ. She'll end up doing her lockdown rehab in California, probably along the sunny Malibu shores. 91 days later, she'll go clubbing in WeHo, and 92 days later, she'll steal a pair of shoes from a Rodeo Drive boutique. Same ol' story.

I just don't understand why California is wasting so much time and money prosecuting this trainwreck. CA doesn't have the money to keep real criminals like rapists and armed robbers in jail. Stop wasting time on Lohan, it just delays the inevitable. Wait a few years and she'll be dead of an overdose anyways.

She won't go to jail. The legal system in this country is a complete joke. It has no credibility

If this is true then all i can imagine the court doing is ordering her to do rehab in Cali. Lets be honest here, LiLo will never go to jail.

Stories like these give people hope that Lindsay will go to jail but most likely that won't happen. Somehow things always work out for her not to do time. This girl will never learn as long as her lawyers loop hole their way out jail time. She knows this, that's why she doesn't respect the court. Anyone else late as often as she is to court would've been reprimanded. The way her life is headed I wouldn't be surprised to hear about her early death.

Especially for you LLFF:

http://audioboo.fm/boos/1279173-won-t-convict-me#_=_
.
This is from a Nationally Syndicated Kids Show that also has quite an Internet following. It's for kids 5-12 and this little ditty is about the evils of being well, evil.
.
Yep LLFF, Even little kids are learning what a drunken, drugged out waste of a human being Lindsay Lohan is.
.
You know LLFF, if I didn't know better, I'd say you're one of those psychotic cutters who have messed up, ugly scarred arms, and messed up ugly scarred minds. But we know better, don't we (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

Since she has NO MONEY or talent she should be forced to go to a normal facility - not some state-paid swanky Malibu resort on the beach.

Send her to New Mexico or Idaho for a few months and dry her up. So she can get back to partying and being the entitled bitch that she is...

SERIOUSLY? REALLY?? UM. NO. NOTHING IS EVER GOING TO HAPPEN TO BLOHAN. SHE'S "HOLLYWOOD" AND AS WE ALL KNOW, THE LAW IN CALIFORNIA HAS SHOWN A COMPLETE LACK OF FAIRNESS WHEN IT COMES TO "HOLLYWOOD." IF THIS WERE YOU OR ME, WE WOULD BE TOSSED INTO THE CAN FASTER THAN YOU COULD EVEN SAY THE WORD "CAN." I USED TO KIND OF HOLD OUT HOPE THAT THIS CHICK WOULD CLEAN UP AND MAKE A COMEBACK BUT NOW... AFTER ALL THE TAX MONEY AND RESOURCES HAVE BEEN HURLED AT THIS RECKLESS, ROTTEN-MINDED PERSON... NO, SHE CAN DROP DEAD AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED.

Look, one reason why California said Lohan didn't have to go to rehab until early May was so that a suitable place could be found. If a suitable, lock down facility can't be found in NY, then one can be found elsewhere.
.
One other thing. If the judge in Calif. feels that Heller (and by extension Lohan) lied to him, then he will be very pizzed and take it out on that drug addict.
