Lindsay Lohan

Lockdown Rehab

Doesn't Exist

3/25/2013 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0324_lindsay_lohan_gettyLindsay Lohan struck a plea deal she CANNOT fulfill, because TMZ has learned ... the lockdown rehab she promised to do is a fiction.

Fact is ... there appears to be no non-jail rehab facilities that will keep patients in against their will -- anywhere in the U.S..

Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... Lindsay's lawyer, Mark Heller, represented to prosecutors he could get his client into a 90-day lockdown rehab center in NYC. As we reported, there are no private NY rehab centers that keep patients against their will, except for one connected with the prison system, and you have to have a felony record to get in -- and Lindsay doesn't.

We also checked to see if Lindsay could complete her 90-day lockdown rehab in CA, but there isn't a single non-jail lockdown rehab facility in the State.

Rehab guru Dr. Drew tells TMZ, "There is no rehab that will hold you against your will, unless they feel the person is a suicide risk, and in that case they can hold the individual for 72 hours."

Here's the BIG problem. Lindsay's actual sentence is 90 days in jail, but the judge said he'd allow her to complete it with lockdown rehab. Sources say the prosecutors believed such a facility was available when they offered the plea deal. 

It would seem a typical 90-day rehab program wouldn't cut it.  Lindsay has been there at least twice before. She constantly snuck out of Cirque Lodge in Utah and allegedly did the same thing at Betty Ford in California.

On top of that, Lindsay continues to drink, as recently as Friday.

We're told prosecutors are reevaluating the plea deal to determine what they want to do.  Sources say the jail option is still on the table.

@Madi...Looks that way doesn't it. Don't think it's going to work. I think the court realizes they made a big mistake giving her the 45 days. For all we know they could be trying to correct that.

The judge could invalidate the existing agreement and impose another in it's place... if he had some imagination it could be real punishment and well within the limits of the law.

Supervised probation, 2000 hours of graffiti removal community service, frequent drug and alcohol testing, and a curfew, say between the hours of 10 PM to 6 AM she must be in her abode and have a limit on the number of visitors.

Would she be jailed if she violates, No, just add more time to the probation and hours of community service.

Good clean work in public, a curfew to keep her out of clubs and intense alcohol and drug testing is exactly what she needs.

TMZ could give us weekly pictures of her in her graffiti tee shirt pushing a paint roller up and down walls and her getting home to wherever she is living in time for her curfew.

Depending on the rehabilitation facility, there are many that will take patients under a court order and follow the court order to the letter. These types of facilities aren't nearly as nice as the cushy ones LiLo is used to. What LL needs is a residential treatment facility that won't put up with her BS, she's going to need more than 90 days, she needs to he somewhere for 2 years.

@Stump... Judge said point blank it Lohan tries to leave or fail any test "there will be no discussions on further probation." It's done.


The judge is leaving it to Lohan. Her choice if she wants to screw this up. We all know how seriously she takes this. Yeah right.


Christ sakes. She's a grown woman pushing 27 years old. Never been anyones fault but her own. Lohan has always been her own enabler. So sick of how it's everybodys fault but her own.

IIRC the "lockdown rehab" idea came from Heller. If that's the case then do we add to the "shouldn't this deal be tossed, does LiLo just HAVE to do rehab in a nonlockdown setting, or does LiLo now have to do her time in jail?" should we add "shouldn't Mr. Heller be charged with some sort of fraud in arguing for and getting a plea deal that cannot be fulfilled on his client's end?

Yea Micheal,
You are right.....It was a deliberate misinformation on Heller's part to get her a last minute deal with the DA.....He was free wheeling his carnival act like a barker selling tickets at a side show.....
In others words he was running his usual court con......like the con man he is and is what got his ass disbarred in the first place......look it up......!!!!
It would be ironic if this leads to his being disbarred again......LOL anybody that does business or associates with Lindsay pays a Heavy price.......the Devil does get his due..;

Here's the deal...because of so called "overcrowding" in the CA correctional facilities, no one is getting serious about locking her butt up, and Lindsay is taking full advantage of this! Sure, she may tweet that she is scared, may be telling her friends this, but she KNOWS IF she actually get's locked up, the most she will do is a month...TOPS! She fights so hard to stay out so she can go to her parties, concerts, festivals...all this crap and she is supposedly broke! Either that is a lie, too, and she has money hidden away in the Cayman Islands somewhere, or she is charging up some huge credit card bills (maybe has one of those unlimited AMEX cards), or she is totally mooching off of all these "friends" and such. Who knows...could be a combo of all three. Bottom line is this, she will never be really punished, because CA doesn't feel she is a threat to society, and they want to save their space for dangerous criminals. What Lindsay needs is for someone to get tough with her! I mean, what happened to staying in NY? What, now that the "trial" is behind her, she can stay in CA again?
