Will the troubled star land up in jail after all?
Earlier this week, Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to spending a 90-day stretch in a rehab clinic in New York, for lying to cops about a car accident that happened last year. The judges stated that Lohan had to spend the 90-day term in a locked facility, i.e. she would be in custody for those three months. However, TMZ have done a lot of rooting around at rehab facilities in New York and haven’t been able to find a single one that actually has lockable facilities for its patients. Given Lindsay’s propensity for escaping from rehab facilities, it’s no wonder she didn’t look too bothered by the sentence.
In the past, Lohan has gotten herself into trouble for sneaking out of her rehab facilities. She “frequently” snuck out of Cirque Lodge in Utah, according to TMZ and she allegedly got into a fight with a staff member at the Betty Ford clinic after learning they were about to grass her up for sneaking out. The question remains, of course of what exactly will happen to Lindsay if there are no lockdown rehab centres in New York that will fulfil the requirements of her sentence.
Law enforcement sources have informed TMZ that prosecutors offered the plea on the basis of Mark Heller’s representation – that’s Lindsay’s lawyer. They’re now investigating his claims and one source said “The sentence was actually 90 days in custody, and lockdown rehab would satisfy that. If there's no such thing, then she'll go to jail for 90 days."
