Lindsay Lohan rehab stay will be tightly monitored

March 22, 2013|By Richard Winton

Lindsay Lohan, who has until May to prove she's enrolled in rehab, will be under very tight restrictions during her stay.

L.A. County Superior Court Judge James Dabney, who on Monday sentenced the actress to serve a 90-day stint in a drug rehabilitation facility, directed her not to leave the facility for any reason and said there would be no passes of any kind that allow her to leave the grounds.

The facility does not have to be locked, but the judge made clear she would violate her probation if she left at any time. Officials will be monitoring her progress.

Lohan reported to the Santa Monica Police Department and got her latest mug shot taken Tuesday after her no-contest plea a day earlier to misdemeanor charges stemming from a crash on Pacific Coast Highway.

Turning herself into police -- though she was not held -- was part of the process of following through on the plea deal.

The booking was largely a formality after Dabney sentenced Lohan to five days in jail as part of a plea agreement; the time will be served as part of her rehab stint.

The "Mean Girls" star avoided jail Monday in a last-minute deal by pleading no contest to misdemeanor reckless driving and providing false information to police. A charge of willfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer was dismissed. In addition to spending 90 days in rehab, she must also spend 18 months in psychotherapy and serve 30 days of community service.

In pleading no contest, Lohan admitted she had violated her probation in a 2011 shoplifting case. Dabney sentenced her to 180 days in jail, but that sentence was stayed. The judge said that if Lohan met the terms of this deal, she wouldn't serve additional time behind bars.

But the judge warned her that there wouldn't be any discussion about probation if she violated the agreement, implying that she would be sent to jail. Lohan was also ordered to pay restitution to the driver of the truck that Santa Monica prosecutors said she hit June 18 while on her way to the set of the cable TV movie "Liz & Dick."

Mark Heller, the New York-based attorney now representing Lohan, said his client was "extremely gratified with the end result."

"I'm very confident that you won't be seeing Lindsay Lohan in any criminal courts any time in the future," Heller said outside the courthouse Monday. "She has fully recognized all of the issues that have to be addressed, and I'm very confident she'll be able to move forward in her life with dignity, pride and respect."
