Oh thank God. Following her trial early this morning (which I tried very hard to ignore, but failed), Lindsay Lohan has managed to avoid jail time and has instead been sentenced back to rehab until January 3rd. In a related story, mom Dina is currently shopping around Lindsay’s Xmas comeback album, I’m Dreaming Of A White (Powder) Christmas: Lindsay Lohan’s Rehab Christmas! (which will also make for a great TV special!)
Lindsay Lohan was just ordered back to rehab until at least January 3, 2011 — no jail time. Lohan is due back in court on February 25. She will be subject to drug testing in between her release from rehab until her court date. If Lindsay does not test positive for drugs or alcohol before her next scheduled during that time, he will convert her sentence to unsupervised probation. The D.A recommended Lindsay get 180 days in county jail. The judge specifically stated he wanted Lindsay in rehab past the New Year. The judge said to Lindsay at one point, “You are an addict. I hope you understand that.” Lindsay nodded her head in agreement. He added, “I don’t want another train wreck.” SOURCE
A prosecutor had advocated a six-month jail sentence for the Mean Girls star, but Fox opted for rehab after reviewing filings by probation and rehab officials and a letter written by Lohan. The actress told probation officials last week that she didn’t want to remain in rehab for longer than a month because “continued inpatient treatment would be a hardship financially, and damaging to her career,” according to a report filed in advance of a hearing Friday. Probation officials and Lohan’s doctors recommended she remain at Betty Ford, and the judge agreed. The actress cried after hearing the sentence. SOURCE
I just love how Lindsay claims that rehab is what is destroying her career along with sucking her funds dry. Hey Linds, you know what’s actually doing that? Your family and your drug addiction, yet you have absolutely no problem lugging those around with you. Hell, at this point I’m pretty sure if you tilt Dina’s head back, a dimebag will pop out of her neck.
