Finally, finally, it looks like there’s been some sort of resolution to the long-running Lindsay Lohan car crash case. The former Punk’d victim will be spending 90 days in court-ordered rehab. And she will not be allowed to leave for any reason.
After refusing what appeared to be an excellent deal in which she would be allowed to serve time from home, Lindsay Lohan has finally been sentenced to 90 days in a locked rehab facility. The initial plea deal involved 90 days in jail, but LiLo was given the option of serving that time in rehabilitation…and she made the smart choice this time and took it. In addition to the time spent in locked rehab, Lindsay will also be required to serve 30 days of community service, plus 18 months of therapy. And she’ll need to pay various fines, including restitution to the victim.
All in all, it seems that Lindsay got off pretty easy, given her history of criminal activity and various arrests. But apparently, Michael Lohan thinks his daughter could have received a much better deal. While happy to see that the sentence would include rehab, Lindsay’s dad still was angry with lawyer Mark Heller. Outside the courthouse, sources claim Michael yelled, “Go home, you’ve done enough damage. Leave my daughter alone and stay out of the press. You’re a parasite.” According to Michael, the lawyer is simply using Lindsay’s case to land his name in the papers.
Mark Heller feels that he’s done Lindsay a great service and hopes that she will be able to resolve her issues while in rehab. He told the press, “The only issue here today is that a sweet, wonderful 26-year-old girl has finally been able to bring some closure to a chapter in her life that has been very unfortunate.”
