LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan has checked into a rehab and will not face a probation violation for leaving another treatment facility after a few minutes, a prosecutor said Friday.
Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said he has received confirmation that Lohan has checked in to a rehab facility and he is satisfied with her location. He declined to say where, but a source close to the actress who was not authorized to speak publicly said she has checked in to the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
The Liz & Dick star is required to spend 90 days in rehab as part of a plea deal in a misdemeanor case filed after a June car accident.
Lohan has also re-hired longtime attorney Shawn Holley to handle her case. White said he was in contact with Holley on Thursday evening after hours of uncertainty about the actress’ whereabouts.
Holley has represented Lohan throughout numerous court proceedings, but the actress opted to have a lawyer from New York unversed in California law represent her in recent months.
