Hot Mess Lindsay Lohan Checks Into Rehab Ahead Of Jail Sentence

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Facing a 90-day jail sentence for violating terms of her driving-under-the-influence probation, actress Lindsay Lohan has checked into a sober living house in Los Angeles founded by famed attorney Robert Shapiro.

lindsay lohanLohan, 24, is due to begin her jail term at Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood Tuesday by surrendering at the Beverly Hills court house."

Lindsay Lohan doesn`t have the sense God gave a wilted head of lettuce -- we must assume that it was her attorney`s idea to check into rehab a few days before surrendering to the authorities.

If Lohan had voluntarily entered rehab before she was sentenced to jail I would have been impressed. At this juncture it`s a transparent attempt to curry favor with the legal authorities.

Lohan needs to suffer in jail for 90 days as a form of humiliation, I hope she`s not released weeks ahead of time. The troubled starlet needs the 90 days in rehab to turn her life around.

It would be really impressive and a sign that the train wreck actress is serious about giving up booze and drugs, if she voluntarily stayed in rehab for more than the mandatory 90 days.
