They say she has to go to rehab. She says, No, no, no -- because there appears to be no "lockdown" rehabilitation facilities in New York, despite what the judge in Lindsay Lohan's conviction on vehicular misdemeanors and probation violation had envisioned when he handed down Lohan's sentence on March 18.

Now Los Angeles prosecutors are discussing their options, TMZ.com reported Sunday, suggesting that those choices are either to recommend to Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Dabney that Lohan serve the 90 days in jail that lockdown rehab was intended to be in lieu of, or that she serve 90 days in a rehab facility that allows her to come and go.

Nor do there appear to be lockdown rehab facilities in California. Addiction counselor and reality-show star Dr. Drew Pinsky told TMZ, "There is no rehab that will hold you against your will, unless they feel the person is a suicide risk, and in that case they can hold the individual for 72 hours."

Lohan, 26, faces a May 2 deadline for whatever incarceration the court orders.

The "Liz & Dick" star, who reportedly created a troubled production during a guest appearance on the Charlie Sheen sitcom "Anger Management" days ago, seems outwardly unworried about her legal future.

During an appearance for John John Denim in Brazil over the weekend, Lohan said in a video interview for the magazine Caras that she plans to record a new album in New York "because I live there now."

E! News says Lohan remains scheduled to appear on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on April 9.
