Judge: Lindsay Lohan to stay in rehab until January

Actress Lindsay Lohan must remain in a drug rehabilitation program until January 3, 2011, instead of going to jail for violating her probation with a failed drug test, a judge ruled Friday.

If Lohan violates the rules of her rehab program or fails a drug test before her next court date on February 25, she will be sent to jail for 180 days, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox told her.

Staying clean and sober until then would end Lohan's supervised probation and she can "put this long episode behind you," Fox said.

  1. oh boy, here we go

    Only in America will a regular citizen get years of time and probation without question while a 'star' gets padded down and taken easy.

    In America, money does the talking for you.

  2. not neccesarily in LLo's court

    flip side of it, money or not.. each person going to jail for DUI SHOULD have to go through rehab first. She's paying for rehab while she's there as she should.. it's her mistake to pay for. It's cheaper for american citizens to have Lindsay in rehab than in jail on OUR tax money. Send them all to rehab, perhaps there will be less of them later...

      Then send them to jail for punishment and assess them a fine for the cost of incarceration. Might get the message to sink in.

  3. not neccesarily in LLo's court

    and let me add.. all persons undergoing drug or DUI charges should have to go to rehab first, THEN some jail time. At least the judge is throwing this at Lindsay, Paris Hilton is free to walk the streets, as many others are... it isn't just $$ that gets you off, it depends on the judge

      Cry me a river! I thought TI was caught with enough of a controlled substance they got him for intent to distribute.... Had nothing to do with him being black. And by the way, I think Lindsay is a dirtbag

    I would bet that she will be released next week because of good behavior or the facility is overcrowded (again).

    Anybody remember "The JORDAN RULES"? Well these are "The LOHAN RULES". I think we all just need to realize that their are two sets of rules. The rules that we have to abide by and The LOHAN RULES. You cant even get mad anymore. THE LOHAN RULES also apply to Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie and all the other "D – List" actresses and socialites.
