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.

Give me a break! The option is simple. Lock her up. Everything she does is a mockery to the legal system. Those puppy dog spaced out eyes are mesmerizing to the judges and they just roll over. She doesn't get it and never will. She has to hit the gutter before the light comes on and all our legal system is doing is enabling her.

Even if she is sentenced to jail, she will spend only hours or maybe a day. Look at Bobby Brown...out in 9 hours.

Why can I google "The family foundation School" located in New Year and read about kid after kid who have been locked into this school suffering unspeakable things? And they speak of suffering which marks them today decades after they have left. Are you only allowed to treat children like that and not adults like Lindsay?

Lindsay's 'team' will probably demand a trial and then claim the jury pool is tainted.

oh man, tmz this is just too stupid. it was the JUDGE who said lilo couldn't leave , HE said " when i say locked facility, i mean no day passes" and she agreed.lilo wasn't sentenced to lockdown rehab, that was the baby of tmz.

btw, lilo wasn't clubbin as your earlier story said, 41 ocean is a private dining clunb NOT a nightclub, it was a private gig!

anyone else in any doubt tmz are hounding this chick, i guess there's no doubt now.
