Lindsay Lohan has reportedly chosen the rehabilitation centre she has been ordered to check into by May 2 in relation to the three misdemeanour driving charges she pled no contest to in March.
Lindsay Lohan has reportedly chosen a rehabilitation facility that will likely be approved by prosecutors.
The 26-year-old Mean Girls actress pled no contest in a Los Angeles court last month to misdemeanour charges of reckless driving, lying to authorities and obstructing police from performing their duties while investigating her June 2012 car crash in Santa Monica.
Lindsay struck a deal with prosecutors to spend 90 days in a locked rehabilitation unit in her native state of New York and perform 30 days of community labour instead of being sent to jail.
Initially there was concern that lockdown treatment simply did not exist in New York State and that her plea agreement would be annulled as a result.
Apparently all is well and Lindsay is set to check into treatment on schedule.
“A facility in New York has been selected that appears to meet all of the criteria set forth by the judge that was made in Lindsay Lohan’s plea deal in her lying to cops case,” a source told Radar Online.
“The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office has been in contact with the rehab facility, and it’s satisfied with the information set forth that Lindsay can comply with while there. The main concern was that Lindsay not be given any day passes during the 90 day stay to leave, and prosecutors have been assured this won’t happen. If Lindsay leaves without permission, the prosecutor and judge will be notified immediately, and she will be sent to jail, no questions asked.”
Lindsay, who has been to rehab a handful of times, has a history of leaving facilities. She reportedly snuck out of Cirque Lodge in Utah during her stay there and allegedly got into a physical altercation with a Betty Ford attendant in a separate incident.
