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.

What I don't get is why they don't just let her go into a 90 day facility and when she leaves like they say she has in the past, pick her up and let her spend the remainder in jail. Not hard.

What the heck is going on with our weather. Last week we were melting. Today it's 45 degrees and tonight it will be 37. I should of known the pecan trees haven't started to bud out yet. They are always the last to bud out. As for Lindsay I hope she gets double time for this scam she and her lawyer tried to pull.

I think hanging her Saddam Hussein style or sending in the navy seals ala Osama Bin Laden just so we can get 100 new TMZ stories out of this BS.

Not even sure why they would send her to rehab considering she's already been there five times ("way more than that" according to Milo on Dr. Phil). Rehab is lost on her. She will not be changed until she gets her wake up call. Jail will not change her unless she does a year or more.

This story is just another sparkler that's going to dud out. TMZ has "cried wolf" on Lindsay going to jail so many many times. And I bet, just bet if she ever does any real jail time, TMZ will still be tooting their horn about how they "broke the story."

She's not going to jail, she never does.

The hate checkers are just people that don't fit in. Kinda like Lindsay. They try to choose the like button but their fingers won't let them. Stop letting your fingers do the walking. Take contol over your fingers. Get a hand on the problem.

This seems accurate. The rehab jails are actually jails with rehab daily but its literally jail.

So no rehab wants to accept this amount of responsibility for a client ?

Lets have another hearing ? :)

Lilo Defends Night Out: It Was Only Water!


March 25, 2013

Less than a week after Lindsay Lohan was ordered to go to rehab, the Mean Girls star was spotted out on the town in Santa Monica, Calif. But despite appearances, Lohan says it's not what it seems.

In defense of her weekend excursion, the 26-year-old actress took to Facebook to offer a bullet-point explanation. She wrote: "1) It wasn't a nightclub - 41 Ocean is a members only dining club ...and a private event 2) It WAS Pellegrino! and 3) the most important part -- the band City of the Sun did any amazing job last night!!!

This is where sterling-ass gets his info from

I've got the solution to California's broke problem. As punishment they should put Lindsay to work for the county. Set up a back room behind the court room, Tell all the guys and girls that Lindsay is open for business to pay off her fees. The only problem will be getting people to actually use her services. Maybe if they throw in some free leggings...........Na! never mind.
