Locked rehab for Lohan
Lindsay Lohan has made a plea deal regarding the charges against her stemming from a car crash last June.
After an approximately 50-minute meeting in the judge’s chambers, attorneys for both sides returned to the courtoom with Lohan pleading no contest to giving false information to a peace officer, as well as no contest to reckless driving. The troubled actress also admitted to violating her probation.
The deal calls for Lohan to serve 90 days in a locked rehab facility, where she will not be allowed to leave for any reason, 30 days of community labour, 18 months of psychotherapy, fines and restitution to victim.
Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White said the offer was 90 days in jail, but that Lohan could do that sentence in a locked rehab facility. Lohan has signed the plea deal form.
Meanwhile, the community labor may be performed in New York. She was also ordered not to drive with any measure of alcohol in her system, drive only with valid insurance and license, not to use narcotics, stay away from any place or people where narcotics are used and make restitution to victim in this case. A restitution hearing may be set to determine amount.
Lohan must be booked by the Santa Monica Police Department within the next seven days. Judge Dabney said Lohan is not required to appear at any of her probation status hearings unless she is not in compliance with her probation.
Judge Dabney set the next hearing for May 2 where Lohan must provide the court proof of enrollment in a residential treatment program.
“This is it,” Dabney told Lohan. “You violate your probation, and we are not going to have this conversation about putting you back on probation.”
Lohan also agreed to have her person and property searched at any time by a probation or peace officer without a warrant. Dabney pointed out that this is not normally a condition given to a misdemeanor, but Lohan agreed to it. (E! Online)
