LiLo spends first night at rehab before her 90-day sentence
Posted July 16, 2010on:
American singer and actress Lindsay Lohan spent her first night at her new attorney’s rehab, less than a week before she is scheduled to spend 90 days in jail and 90 days in an in-patient rehab facility.
Lohan spent her first night in her new attorney Robert Shapiro’s sober living facility Pickford Lofts, according to X17Online.com.
Shapiro signed on to be Lohan’s attorney.
He will not be appealing for Lohan’s 90-day sentence but will instead try to convince Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel to keep her in the facility or minimize her jail term, according to TMZ.
Lohan’s father Michael praised the decision to move her to a rehab but he questioned why this step wasn’t taken earlier.
“It’s a positive step, but if they don’t detox her off the prescription drugs it means nothing. Absolutely nothing,” Fox News quoted Lohan’s father Michael as saying.
“They have to get her off the prescription drugs. If you look at the list of things she’s taking, it’s toxic. I don’t even know how she’s still alive,” he added.
The idea of shifting Lohan came from Shapiro, who founded Pickford Lofts after he lost son in an overdose in 2005, said Michael.
