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."

I think I have a better chance of getting struck by lightning, and winning the lotto in the same hour than ever running into a Lindsay supporter/fan in the real world.

Lindsay if you do the jail time your fans will create chaos so that they will let you go as early as possible. Send you thousands of letters and bombard them with calls.

What's the big deal, toss her in rehab, tell her she can't leave, and put an Ankle monitor on her. Problem solved

They have lock down mental wards in NYC alright. They have St. Lukes ward, Belleview and Kings County Hospital, to name a few. I don't know about any private ones. Maye she should get in touch with Dr. Peter Breggin, a psychiatrist in Syracuse, NY. He could treat her without lobotomizing medications. That is what he is known for in the psychiatric field.

Since she says she doesn't even have a substance abuse problem, maybe she should just go for her mental problems dealing with life.

Maybe she could even hire a security guard to be stationed at the hospital to make sure she doesn't get out. Even if she goes to jail, she will probably only do like a month and be let out.

I don't think she should be so terrified of jail. Paris Hilton made it into a retreat experience. She could just keep to herself and read a lot of books.

Hahahahaha OMG this week keeps getting better and better. I hope the judge FREAKS out. What a slap in the face. If I were a judge and someone made an ass out of me like this I'd make their life a living hell.

I have it on good authority that this is the next stop on the dazzling career of Lindsay Lohan:
On a personal note, I would be ashamed to let the world know that this is on my twitter feed. Right Moto?

Harvey can't wait for Linds to get back to the westie... he loves licking her clean after she's pulled a train.

Why not send her to Bellevue hospital? I am pretty sure they have a rehab program. If not a locked psych ward for her to finally treat that nasty personality disorder she seems to have.

Lohan wanted to do all this in NY. She's got nothing in L.A. . I got the impression that they worked on letting Lohan do rehab, CS and shrink all in NY as long as everyone is on board and approved.

Don't remember hearing anything about Lohan being able to go anywhere as long as the facility was approved by everyone. That makes no sence at all.

All of her crap is in L.A. and NY. I don't they are going to be issueing warrants for non-complience or violations in a different state other then California or NY.

Lohan, hate to tell you this is not for or at your convienence.
