Lindsay Lohan Enters Rehab In Attempt To Avoid Jail

CelebritiesDirt Bag
  • In a last-ditch effort to avoid reporting to jail on Tuesday, Lindsay Lohan has entered a sober-living facility owned by her new lawyer, Robert Shapiro.

Shapiro founded the facility after losing his son Brent to substance abuse in 2005. After entering the building yesterday afternoon, Lindsay was visited by her mother, sister, and Samantha Ronson. Says source, “The hope is that the judge sees Lindsay getting treatment and puts her in an inpatient (rehab) program for 90 days instead of jail. Lindsay is not trying to fight or appeal the sentence, but adjust it.” [UPI]
