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.

Send her to jail! She obviously does not think she needs rehab so she may be takin the spot of someone who really wants and needs to be there.

Lets see, they'll probably take her into custody right after filming AM and she'll be out in plenty of time to catch her flight to Brazil a few hours later.

Next.

This story seems to on TMZ everyday just worded slightly differently. I think Hellar knew there was no such thing and I believe right now, the incompetent ones are the prosecutors who just took his word for it. Don't they check things out before saying OK to something? Then again, I guess they are supposed to trust the lawyer handling a client....

"Lindsay's lawyer, Mark Heller, represented to prosecutors he could get his client into a 90-day lockdown rehab center in NYC."
And the prosecutors took this for granted?

"Here's the BIG problem."
If TMZ writes about a BIG problem it usually turns out to be a SMALL problem or NO problem at all.

".... the prosecutors believed such a facility was available when they offered the plea deal."
The prosecutors never checked this? Talking about being imcompetent.

Why didn't the judge:
- pick a rehab facility?
- order Lindsay to check herself in immediately after the "trial"?

I remember there was a judge who put a son of Ryan O'Neal in court ordered rehab?
How difficult can it be to put Lindsay Lohan in court ordered rehab?
