Lindsay Lohan

Lockdown Rehab

Doesn't Exist

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

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.

drinking isn't a problem. driving while drinking is. Send the btch to jail then leave her alone. Some of these drinking and driving laws are b.s anyway.

HoHan: Go to jail. Go directly to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect blow (er, $200). How this skank keeps getting away with major crimes is mind boggling.

I would go with a 90 day lockdown at Charlie Sheen's Rehab facility whats he call it.

Non stop orgies with 7 gram rocks, she would emerge a skinny worn out hag.

Wow, you're WAAAAYYYYYY off TMZ. The prosecutor has clarified that the rehab facility does not have to be one which "holds you against your will", Lindsay can do the 90 days at a voluntary rehab facility, but the catch is that if she leaves, then she goes to jail.

Easy. Have her stay in jail at night and go to outpatient therapy during the day. Either that or plain jail, no rehab. She needs to get this finished in 3 months and then complete the probation and community service. Then she is completely free of it all - free to self destruct if she wants. Sick of hearing about her situation.

At this point since her last COURTROOM appearance, she is just LAUGHING in the face of the judge and the prosecuting DA's recommendations to send her to rehab. This dippy twit has NO intention of EVER rehabbing herself as she has shown over the weekend. It is MADDENING that this dippy twit gets these kinds of probation violation sentences, gets to go out DRINKING before she is COURT ORDERED to go to REHAB! This judge needed to say look over the past 7 years since this repeat criminal offender entered our system we have given very lenient sentences for her follow and she simply refuses to get it! Every judge has attempted to work with her and she continually fails after she gets on track. So at this point it needs to be NO MORE REHAB, but JAIL, day for day, with CREDIT for time served, with no possibility for EARLY RELEASE! Once this has been completed she will be on simple probation for ONE year, If she fails to comply and or gets another infraction while on probation she will go back to jail as the probation officer sees fit for the time allowed for each infraction. The judicial system was far to lenient with this latest infraction and violation and the Judge just needed to say look enough! You have been in our system far too long, you are not getting it, so it is off to jail with you and here is your sentence. Period. At the end of day, Lohan will eventually crash and burn since she NO intention of ever rehabbing herself, for either her sad and now pathetic, what's-left-of-it-career, or even for that matter just herself! How sad that all is!
