Dina Lohan pleads guilty to drunk driving, speeding
Dina Lohan pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated drunk driving and speeding Tuesday, earning herself 100 hours of community service before her sentencing hearing comes up in early June.
“I’ll never be back here again. You can quote me,” the 51-year-old told Newsday on her way out of court and into a silver Rolls-Royce.
It was all part of a deal that come June 3 will see Lohan’s license revoked for a year and an ignition interlock device installed in her car. The judge also said he would sentence her to alcohol-education classes, and she’ll be paying $3,100 in fines.
She’ll have to play by the rules for a year, the judge said, as a condition of her discharge.
Lohan, mother to is-she-still-sober actress Lindsay Lohan, was arrested last September in Long Island, N.Y., going 77 mph in a 55-mph zone, according to police. Dina reportedly blew 0.20% on a blood-alcohol breath test, notching more than twice New York’s legal limit of 0.08%.
The aggravated DWI charge, as opposed to simple DUI, considers her high level of intoxication.
The elder Lohan “has been a ‘parent trapped’ with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own,” her lawyer, Mark Heller, said in a statement at the time of the arrest. In October, Heller blamed his client’s drinking on paparazzi-related stress.
