Is Lindsay Lohan going to serve her court-mandated 90-day rehab on Long Island?
"I as a defense attorney have been considering a number of facilities, qualifying them by their ability to serve Lindsay and meet the mandates the court has set," Heller said. "The only one who is ultimately in a position make the final determination is clearly the judge in this case. The story by TMZ claiming a final choice and decision has been made is totally inaccurate."
A woman who answered the phone yesterday at the Westhampton Beach Seafield -- one of the agency's seven locations on Long Island and its only inpatient center -- said, "We have no comment at this time."
Seafield Center is designed for 28-day stays, but the administrator promised prosecutors he would create a 90-day program specifically for Lohan, TMZ said.
While Seafield is not a lockdown facility, as a Los Angeles judge ordered for Lohan last month, it is an inpatient center with 24-hour staff at the doors, surveillance cameras and walls, TMZ said.
While staff could not physically detain her if she tried to leave, they would notify authorities, resulting in a probation violation and likely jail time.
L.A. County Superior Court Judge James Dabney allowed 90-day rehab in lieu of a 90-day jail sentence in a plea arrangement on Lohan's charges of probation violation and three misdemeanors, including reckless driving and lying to police.
Lohan's mother, Dina Lohan, said a close-to-home rehab center would be ideal.
"Our intention is to have her close to her immediate family -- myself, my three other children and my mom -- so it's easier to visit," she told Newsday.
