Phew! Lindsay Lohan is in the clear!!
There’s been quite the kerfuffle over the actress’ 90-day rehab stint, what with her quick appearance at unlicensed and unauthorized Morningside Recovery.
However, her quick admittance at the Betty Ford Center has paid off! While Judge Jim Dabney accepted LiLo’s treatment at the rehab facility last week, case prosecutors had until today to oppose the decision. Luckily for Lindsay, they’ve approved, too!
As long as she completes her 90 days without a hitch, all should be well for the troubled actress!

Betty Ford might be the best thing that’s happened to the Lohan family in a loooooong time!
Now that Lindsay is getting her shizz together — or so we hope — as she completes her 90-day treatment, the rest of her fam might actually get to resolve of their issues, too! How exactly? With a good ol’ family therapy session!
A source revealed:
Just because she miraculously escaped jail time doesn’t mean rehab is going to be easy breezy!
“It is understood by the Betty Ford Center that your client is to remain on premises for the duration of her 90-day stay in treatment.”
Yep, this lady is NOT allowed to leave. Judge James Dabney, who’s been overseeing Lindsay’s case, not only ordered that the actress stay in the hospital wing of the treatment facility, but also ordered that she not be allowed to leave the facility’s premises under any circumstance.
But this is all stuff you know. Now, let's get down to LiLo's planned activities while in lockdown! For the duration of her stay, Lindsay is going to be one busy lady!
Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley PRAISED By Judge For Snatching Starlet "From The Precipice!"
The world has pretty much collectively agreed that it's a straight-up MIRACLE that Lindsay Lohan made it safely into the Betty Ford Center to begin her 90-day sentence in lockdown rehab before a warrant for her arrest was issued, and apparently, the judge handling her probation violation case, Jim Dabney, agrees!
So much so, in fact, that he told the woman who made it all possible, Shawn Chapman Holley, that she single-handedly SAVED her client from certain jail time!
As we all know, it was looking pretty grim for the troubled starlet when she ran away from the unlicensed-for-treatment Morningside Recovery facility the morning she was due to begin her stay, all while her lawyer at the time, Mark Heller, was in the courtroom lying through his teeth about how "ensconced" she was "in the bosom" of the facility! Luckily, LiLo was smart enough to call the attorney she fired and beg her to be taken back on as a client, which led to her making it back into Betty Ford and in compliance with the court by the skin of her teeth!
According to new reports, Judge Dabney was so impressed with Holley's quick maneuvering that he told her this morning:

We don't know how she managed to yet again slither her way out of trouble, but despite all of the odds stacked against her, Lindsay Lohan made it to the court-approved Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage Thursday night!
As we've reported, the troubled starlet went through a pretty harrowing 24 hours, after she walked out on the unlicensed Morningside Recovery after two minutes that same morning, then fired attorney Mark Heller in lieu of the incredibly loyal and patient Shawn Chapman Holley!
But right before a warrant could be issued for her arrest, she was safely and securely
Lindsay Lohan Avoids Arrest Warrant By Checking Into Betty Ford Clinic — The SAME Rehab That Accused Her Of Assault!
Looks like Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White is going to have to throw out that warrant we know he was ready to issue for Lindsay Lohan's arrest!
Because it appears that following her last-minute legal circus, which resulted in her canning of attorney Mark Heller and immediate re-hiring of Shawn Chapman Holley, the troubled starlet has been signed, sealed, and delivered to her new, locked-down home for 90 days: the Betty Ford Clinic!
In fact, while there's yet to be an official confirmation, insiders claim that Lindsay actually made it to the Rancho Mirage facility before midnight last night…which means that she fulfilled her obligation to be enrolled by May 2nd!
That's right! Despite telling Morningside Recovery that she didn't need rehab, sources close to her now assert that she's FINALLY ready to cooperate and stop making the lives of everyone around her miserable!
And it's all thanks to Miz Holly!
