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 rehab for Lindsay is an excellent choice, after all, she only uses rehab to get out of jail.

Lindsay is so happy, healthy and clear headed now, that she does not need rehab. Just ask her.

After the pic of her attempting to hide herself under the blanket surfaced, prosecutors are now contacting facilities in NY for 24 hour rehabilitation care. If TMZ is correct about there not being one with 24 hour care, they may issue another mandatory court appearance for Fire Crotch.
They can suss out the facility shena****ns on the spot and then REMAND her into custody, she may also have violated her probation by mis-representing to the court about the 24 hour rehab facility.

Don't forget, her probie violation is a CONSECUTIVE sentence, meaning she serves 90 for rehab first and then she serves her probation time after she has done her 90 days. One after the other sentence, NOT at the same time.

Karma ALWAYS wins people.

I'll Never Tell    

I really don't understand why she is so afraid of going to jail. She's been there before and was in solitary the entire time. And she would only end up serving a fraction of the time she is sentenced to and far less than the 90 days she'll spend in rehab. I'm not sure what incentive she has to comply considering she is not willing to accept that she has a substance abuse problem.

Good riddance!    

And now it comes out that Side Show Heller's son is the one pimping out Crackie, so she can't bail on Side Show without angering her current pimp! Oh, this just gets better and better and not for Crackie!

I think that after all this is over that Lohan actually gets the help she needs.
And when I say "help she needs", I mean she gets clubbed to death like a baby harp seal - or Nicole's niece.

They made it clear that it had to be a court approved this is no concern.

Ha...enough already with the keystone cop lawyer Heller. Send Lindsay to jail already. If she wants to save whatever's left in her life...she needs a reality check. She's had too many chances...

Why don't they put her in a hospital and study her brain. I don't mean cutting her head open. Like conduct studies on her brain waves and other peoples. Let her loose after 24 months. No shock waves or drugs. Just studying it.
