Lindsay Lohan avoids going to jail after agreeing to plead no contest to charges of reckless driving and lying to police and was sentenced to 90 days at an inpatient rehab facility, 20 days of community labor and 18 months of psychotherapy.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIAUNITED STATES (MARCH 18, 2013) (UNRESTRICTED POOL) -  Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was ordered on Monday (March 18) to spend 90 days in a locked rehabilitation facility and undertake 30 days community labor as part of a plea bargain with prosecutors over charges arising from a June car crash.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Dabney said Lohan must also undergo psychotherapy for 18 months.

The agreement came on the first day of a scheduled trial for Lohan on charges that she lied to police when she said she was not behind the wheel when her Porsche sports car smashed into a truck on June 8, 2012, in Santa Monica,California. Lohan had faced a possible jail sentence if convicted at trial.
