Although Lindsay Lohan herself wasn’t present, her attorney met with the judge to determine what Lindsay has to do now that she’s left rehab. E! News reports this is what Lindsay’s attorney said the actress has to do outside the courtroom (cameras were banned from the proceedings):
First up: … Lindsay was ordered to remain in California and reside at her West Hollywood home until her next court date on Nov. 1. (Lohan will not be required to attend that progress report hearing.)
At that point, should she obey the modified terms of her probation, she will be allowed to move out of state. But, judging by her track record, that could be a big if. Here’s what she’s got to do:
Remain in California with L.A. her primary residence
Undergo psychiatric treatment a minimum of four times a week
Attend chemical dependency meetings (like A.A. or N.A.) at least five times a week as part of 12-step program
Contact her chemical dependency counselor at least seven times a week
Attend behavioral therapy twice a week
Submit to random drug and alcohol testing two times per week
Chapman must provide biweekly compliance reports to court
The judge reportedly stated that if Lindsay missed any drug tests she would have to serve 30 days in jail (I’m sure Lindsay’s really scared of that at this point, given that it’s likely to turn into 30 minutes of actual time served).
But on a positive note: both under-the-influence counts against Lindsay were dismissed.
Lindsay’s attorney also said that at this time, the actress was not planning to attend the premiere of her new movie, ‘Machete,’ tonight, either.
“She’s moving forward in a positive way and not necessarily going to something splashy. She has changed, she’s healthy, she’s clear-headed, she’s positive and she’s looking forward.”
Although I certainly hope this is true, I’ll have to see it to believe it.
