Lindsay Lohan may have been refusing a plea deal stemming from her car accident where she allegedly lied to the cops about being the driver up until now, but in the end she took the deal.
Lohan arrived to court 48 minutes late today after missing several flights to L.A. from New York. If she didn't make it to court, a bench warrant would have been issued for her arrest. While walking into court someone threw glitter on Lohan.
After a lot of back and forth negotiationg, prosecutors and Lohan's lawyers were able to strike a plea deal. As per the terms of the deal Lohan pled no contest to the crimes of reckless driving and lying to cops She will do 90 days in a rehab center and will not be able to leave. Lohan will also perform 30 days of community service and undergo psychotherapy for 18 months.
Although she dodged major jail time, Lohan will spend a mandatory 5 days in jail for reckless driving, but it's going to be rolled into the lockdown rehab so she will not actually be in prison.
Lohan will be able to complete her rehab in N.Y. and will have to submit to random drug tests.
In addition, Lohan admitted to a probation violation in her jewelry theft case and was sentenced to 180 days in jail. However, the sentence was stayed and she will not serve the time if she obeys all laws.
The judge warned Lohan that this was her last chance, that if she appeared before the court again, he would impose her full sentence.
