Lindsay Lohan Accepts Guilty Plea, Ordered to 90 Days in Locked Rehab
UPDATED: The trouble magnet, who showed up to court almost 50 minutes late, is also sentenced to five days in jail, 30 days of community service and 18 months of psychotherapy.
As part of a guilty plea deal, a California judge has sentenced Lindsay Lohan to five days in jail, 90 days in locked rehab, 30 days of community service and 18 months of psychotherapy as well as several fines for violating her probation.
Lohan looked tired and listless as she pleaded no contest in a Los Angeles court; her lawyer, Mark Heller, alongside the troubled tabloid magnet, who was glitter-bombed while arriving to the hearing almost an hour late on Monday morning.
Lohan was due in court at 8:30 a.m. to face a judge on charges she lied to police after a car crash last year. She missed her early-morning mark, however, because a private jet she had taken from New York to LAX was landing at around the same time.
Her red-eye flight had been delayed, reported the LA Times, and when Lohan finally arrived at the courthouse, it was 9:18 a.m., 48 minutes behind schedule. Wearing a sheer white pantsuit, the 26-year-old Liz & Dick star rushed past a cluster of shouting photographers as well as an anonymous glitter-armed assassin, who doused her twice with gold confetti.

Lohan, who has been on probation for drunk driving and shoplifting charges since 2007, stood accused of telling officers that she was not driving the Porsche that rear-ended a truck June 18 en route to the Liz & Dick set on Pacific Coast Highway. The three misdemeanor counts against her included reckless driving, providing false information to an officer and willfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer.
Throughout her court proceedings, Lohan had previously refused any deal that would have her locked up, including an offer from prosecutors to serve 90 days in a locked rehabilitation facility to resolve the charges.
