Last September, Lindsay Lohan‘s mother Dina Lohan was arrested for drunk driving in New York, a crime that she immediately plead no guilty. Back in April, Dina had a change of heart and changed her plea to guilty in exchange for a more lenient sentence. Today we learn that Dina Lohan has been sentenced to 100 days of community service and revoking of her driver’s license for her DUI conviction. At her sentencing today, Lohan also received a tongue-lashing from the ruling judge. Click below to find out what the judge had to say to Dina as she was being punished in court today.
Dina Lohan was sentenced today on Long Island in her DWI case, but the judge delivered his harshest words to Dina after the fact … saying she was lucky she didn’t kill anyone. Lohan pled guilty to DWI and speeding … and was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service and had her license revoked for a year. Once she can drive, she’ll have an interlock device installed on her car for another year. But after Judge Engel handed down the sentence, he had rough words for Dina, saying, “The only person responsible for this ordeal is Miss Lohan. She is just lucky nobody was killed. She may not be as lucky next time”. Upon hearing that, Dina replied, “There will not be a next time.” That should be the Lohan family motto.
Honestly, this punishment is more severe than I was expecting. The community service will likely be a joke but having her license revoked for a year means that other drivers will be spared from Lohan‘s reckless behavior for the next 12 months. I would hope that being chastised in open court by the judge will have an impact on Lohan‘s future behavior but if her family’s track record is any indication, it may not have any impact on her at all. At least she’ll be off the roads for the next year. Hopefully this punishment will be enough to teach her a very valuable lesson.
