Lawyer: Lindsay Lohan checks into rehab facility

By

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan's lawyer says the actress has checked into a rehab facility, but it remains unclear whether a judge will accept her placement there.

Attorney Mark Jay Heller told LA Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney that Lohan had checked into a rehab, but prosecutors have not signed off on the facility.

Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White told Dabney he didn't have time to investigate the rehab and needed time to do so.

The actress was ordered to serve 90 days in a lockdown rehab facility in March. She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and lying to police after a June accident.

Dabney said Lohan should remain in the program for now. The judge told Dabney to inform him by May 10 whether prosecutors approve the facility.
