Dina Lohan sentenced, avoids jail time for DWI
Dina Lohan found out her fate in a drunk driving arrest from last September, but won't be spending any time in jail.
Dina Lohan was sentenced on Tuesday, June 3, for a driving while intoxicated arrest from back in September. Although the mom of Lindsay Lohan avoided jail time, she wasn't let off that easily.
Lohan was ordered to pay more than $3,000 in fines and fees, and given 100 hours of community service. She was also ordered to participate in an anti-drunken driving program, according to the Associated Press. She will also be required to attend a victim panel by Nov. 28.
"The only person responsible for this onerous ordeal is Ms. Lohan herself," the judge in the case said, according to The New York Daily News. "Fortunately, you didn't kill anybody or kill yourself. If there's a next time, you might not be so lucky."
"There won't be a next time," Lohan responded.
Lohan's driver's license was also suspended for a year, and she was ordered to install an ignition lock in her car that detects alcohol.
After she was arrested last September, Lohan's attorney issued a statement that said, "Dina Lohan is a good person. Her life has been dedicated to her four children. She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a 'Parent Trapped' with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own."
Lohan said she was fleeing paparazzi when she was pulled over back in September. She was arrested near her home in Long Island for driving while intoxicated and speeding. Not only was the famous mom driving 77 mph in a 55 mph zone, but she also had a blood alcohol content level of 0.20 at the time of her arrest, more than twice the legal limit for driving.
"I just want to put this behind me," Lohan told reporters after her sentencing.
