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."

Dude    

I 100% Guarantee everyone that this will all be changed to 30 days HOME ARREST.

Mark my words.


When all is said and down, the plea will once again be switched, and it will be a 30 day house arrest with a scram device on her ankle.

They'll probably just force her into doing the lockdown rehab in Cali instead if NY does not have such protocols.

Hey TMZ, Can't click on likes. What's up with that? Yes I'm signed in.

No one is ever going to hold this woman accountable. I'm even getting fed up with TMZ teasing me saying this time she's going to jail. Lock this girl up already! She's a menace to society and herself. I realize she has problems, doesn't everyone? I mean really, everyone is going to enable this girl right into a grave. Stop already and lock her up. If this were any average person they would have served a great deal of time already. She has no respect for anyone including herself. It's sad.

Now it makes sense why she was telling Heller to STFU, she was afraid he'd let this info slip while he was busy sucking up to the judge lol

Dear Lord;


When Lindsay finally kills someone while driving under the influence, please let it be one of the idiot enablers from the TMZ board.


Thanks.
