Lindsay Lohan Back To Jail AND Rehab, New Lawyer Says

January 11, 2013 08:35 AM by Megan Wilson

Guess who’s going back to rehab, only to emerge and go straight to jail?   Yes, the Punk’d star Lindsay Lohan has finally faced the music in regards to her many legal troubles.  In a statement from her new lawyer, Robert Schapiro (Once famous for representing O.J.), it is  revealed that she was doled out a 90 day jail sentence, followed by a 90 day stint in rehab.  But that’s not it!  Keep reading for more details!

It seems that even a famous lawyer like Robert Schapiro couldn’t get Lindsay Lohan off the hook in regards to her most recent charges, but he wants to make sure that she doesn’t just serve her time, but that she gets some real help.  Schapiro himself lost a son to a drug overdose, and is making it crystal clear that Lindsay has more needs than just a good lawyer to help her get back to her original successful self.

In a statement released by Schapiro, he addresses Lindsay’s sentence, along with the plan they will employ to ensure Lindsay’s future health: “I have agreed to represent Ms. Lohan on the condition that she complies with all of the terms of her probation, including a requirement of jail time that was imposed by Judge Marsha Revel.  Ms. Lohan is suffering from a disease that I am all too familiar with. Hopefully, I can be of assistance to Ms. Lohan and Judge Revel in implementing a treatment approach recommended by medical professionals for Ms. Lohan’s long term recovery and sobriety.”

Lindsay already checked in at Pickford Lofts, a sober house run by Schapiro, earlier this week.  She will surrender herself Tuesday to begin her sentence.

While we’re all glad that Lindsay is finally facing the consequences of her actions, we can’t help but be skeptical of the latest news.  This will be her 6th time in rehab; the last time she was incarcerated she served just under 5 hours.

What do you think of the latest news?  Will Lindsay change her ways?  Let us know in the comments!

    Until the long arm of the law puts her in jail and keep her there — for a period of at least 3 months, with the threat of having to return for a year with no hope of early release if she messes up after released — then Lindsay will continue down this road that could eventually, and sadly, end her career and maybe even her life. Fopr the love of God, please force her to become accountable. What they have been doing (sending her to jail only to be released 5 hours later) is NOT WORKING!!!! I don’t see any other answer but to keep her in jail for such an extended amount of time that she gets it through her skull that her behavior has either got to change or she’ll ruin her life.

    Could you PLEASE use spell check before you publish your article. I mean “laywer” in the headlines, and NO ONE noticed before you put it out there?? Come on guys, that’s pretty ridiculous. (And there’s another error in one of your sentences as well.)

    Lindsay obviously will never change her ways. Her next stop is the cemetary.

    90 days is hardly enough. Should have been a minimum of 6 months…minimum. She needs her butt kicked while she’s in there. Maybe that would bring her down a few notches so she’ll see she’s not all that. Being taught a little humility would do more good than anything.

    It is sad that someone’s life is being exploited like this young girl’s life. Hollywood has truly chewed her up and spit her out. Her parents have also lost sight of their purpose and responsibility to love and protect her. They also want to be famous. It is also sad that when she is out that the public being aware of her legal problems, taunt and provoke her into coming completely out of character and add to her grief. She really needs help — not more exposure. She has no real friends; if so, then they should get on the job and encourage her to deal with things head on, that’s what my friends do for me.

    Lindsay will not comply, oh she will go to rehab for the seventh time, leave after a few hours like always and nothing will be accomplished in her rehab. Its a joke once again. Lindsay is a joke, she will turn out like Whitney Houston and be her own worst enemy, she will continue to self destruct until she DIES. Does this sound harsh, yes it does, but it is warranted by her very own actions. I am a former heavy drug user, I almost died, never went to rehab, but got up one day after a night I should have not lived through and decided enough was enough, I AM DONE, and that was it. Until Lindsay decides to do that nothing will help her.

    Really??? She has had more chances than anyone deserves. She believes because she is “famous” that she can get away with anything. After her latest movie bombs and problems on set she has likely ended her career as well. We will see her in 20 years on one of those “what ever happened to” shows. She deserves far more jail time than she will ever serve.

    Lohan is suffering from a disease,’ lawyer says..GUESS WHAT “STUPIDITY” IS NOT A DISEASE.

    She picked a great lawyer. Schapiro son died of an overdose. So he’ll butter up the judge. 90 days is probably less than a week. The rehab place is probably like a country club. It’s just a waste of time on her. Just like the old saying, “Money talks an bull shit walks”. Just how many chances do you give a loser.

    Dana Gold,

    Who cares about a couple typo’s, when others are having a serious discussion regarding a potentially fatal disease? I have (6) yrs. of college and still make typo’s at times. Stick to the topic at hand and pull out your dictionary. I read the article in full and did not once see lawyer spelled incorrectly. Weigh out the importance; a drug over dose, or a few typo’s. Not a tough decision.
