Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer Mark Heller may have openly lied to the court.
In striking a plea deal to keep Lohan out of jail, Mr. Heller promised to have his client placed in a NYC rehab facility. What’s more, Heller said Lohan would be placed in a 90-day lockdown rehab center in New York City.
There is only one problem with Heller’s promise. There are no private NY rehab centers that will keep patients against their will.
Realizing the potential lie, staffers at TMZ attempted to hunt down a private lockdown facility anywhere in the United States. As it turns out, only prison-associated rehab centers will hold someone against their will, and they only do so in the case of felons.
Speaking to the celebrity portal, Dr. Drew explains: “There is no rehab that will hold you against your will, unless they feel the person is a suicide risk, and in that case they can hold the individual for 72 hours.”
Because prosecutors and the judge overseeing the case were led to believe such lockdown facilities exist, it is possible that the plea deal could be struck down and Lohan could face 90 days in jail.
Mark Heller was forced to offer Lindsay Lohan’s rehab lockdown plea because she had constantly snuck out of her rehab treatment at the Cirque Lodge in Utah and allegedly did the same at the Betty Ford Clinic in California.
Lohan partied the weekend away with her rumored boyfriend Avi Snow, hardly the actions of someone ready to enter rehab and straighten out her life.
Lindsay Lohan’s constant partying, numerous crimes, and now her plea deal that can’t be met could finally place her behind bars for her various crimes.
Based on the Lindsay Lohan rehab lockdown failure, do you think she should finally be placed in jail to serve out her time?
