Lindsay Lohan ordered back to rehab

Lindsay Lohan has avoided jail time by accepting a plea deal in which she has to go back to rehab.

She was ordered to spend 90 days in a locked rehab facility as well as 30 days of community service during her trial today.

Lindsay pleaded “no contest” to the charges of reckless driving and lying to the police about who was driving her car during a car crash last year. These charges also meant she violated her probation, which she was on after stealing a necklace.

The actress will have to pay a series of fines and undergo psychotherapy for 18 months. The judge also urged her not to drive, although there is nothing legally stopping her.

Even the judge was exasperated at her constant law-breaking, saying: “You really need to understand. This is it. Please take this seriously.” Only time will tell if she listens to this advice.

If the trial had gone on without a plea bargain, Lohan could have faced 245 days in jail if found guilty. There is a compulsory five days jail time for reckless driving, but that will be incorporated into her rehab, so she won’t go to jail. She can also complete her rehab in New York, where she now lives.

Lindsay turned up to her trial 45 minutes after missing two flights.
