Dina Lohan Pleads Guilty
Lohan, 51, was arrested and charged with the misdemeanor of driving while intoxicated and speeding excessively on Sept. 12 while traveling through Oyster Bay, reported the New York Daily News. She’d allegedly been driving at a speed of 77 mph, 22 mph greater than the 55 mph limit on the road. Her blood alcohol level registered at more than twice the legal limit.
Now that Lohan has pleaded guilty, she will be sentenced on June 3. She will receive a conditional discharge, ordered to 100 hours of community service and to pay a fine, according to the Nassau county prosecutor.
Although she pleaded guilty, Lohan claimed that the reason why she was speeding was because paparazzi were chasing her. Prosecutors decided that due to the circumstances, they would reduce the points on her license from nine to three, her lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, told the News.
“[Dina] felt this was a great start to the Holy Week,” Heller said in a statement.
