Earlier, Lindsay Lohan was adamant about not accepting lockdown rehab, but she went for it on Monday. Perhaps she did so because, as TMZ reported on Wednesday -- in New York State -- there is no such thing.
According to the site's investigation, despite contacting numerous rehabilitation facilities in New York State, they could not find one that locked down their patients -- forcing them to stay, in other words. An official from the New York State agency that regulates rehabilitation facilities said that lockdown rehab does not exist in the state.
That could pose a problem for Lohan. Apparently, the plea deal -- or at least the portion that said she could take her rehab in New York -- was based on the representation of Lohan's new lawyer, Mark Heller, who asserted that New York Stae had lockdown rehab facilities.
Prosecutors are now trying to determine for themselves if Heller's representation was false. 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.
Lohan, in fact, has a history of sneaking out of rehab facilities. Two such examples were her stints at Cirque Lodge and the Betty Ford Center.
At the Betty Ford Center, upon her return from her night out, a counselor and Lohan scuffled. The Betty Ford employee later sued Lohan and the case was settled out of court last year.
