Lindsay Lohan In Sober House Already?

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly checked herself into a sober house just days before the troubled starlet was due to surrender herself for a 90-day jail sentence. Could the actress be throwing a legal hail mary, hoping that this act of good faith might be enough to convince her archnemesis — the merciless Judge Marsha Revel — that she’s serious about changing her ways?

According to TMZ, LiLo surprised pretty much everyone by checking into a West Hollywood sober house. As a part of her sentence, she was required to attend rehab following her 90 days of jail, but as TMZ puts it:

… this appears to be a case of putting the cart before the horse

TMZ’s paparazzo later catured Dina Lohan and Samantha Ronson going to visit Lindsay at the facility.

What’s even more interesting is that the Pickford Lofts sober house was founded by Lohan’s new lawyer, Robert Shapiro, who started the facility following the substance abuse death of his son, Brent. RadarOnline reports that Lohan checked in just shy of 4 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

Lohan was ordered to surrender for her jail sentence by July 20. Recent reports claimed that the Mean Girls (and future Machete star) has been put on suicide watch ahead of her imprisonment.

What do you think? Will jail/rehab put Lindsay’s career and life back on track? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
