Lindsay Lohan's mother pleads guilty to drunken driving

NEW YORK - Lindsay Lohan's mother has pleaded guilty in New York to a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated.

Dina Lohan also pleaded guilty to speeding during her court appearance Tuesday on Long Island, Newsday reports.

The Nassau County prosecutor says Lohan is expected to be sentenced June 3 to a conditional discharge and 100 hours of community service. She will also pay a fine.

Police said Lohan, 51, was driving 77 mph (124 kph) in a 55 mph (88 kph) zone when she was arrested on Sept. 12 in Oyster Bay, N.Y. They said her blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit.

"On this, the first day of Passover, an offer has been made to Dina Lohan that is too good to pass over -- no jail, no probation and the opportunity to resume her driving," her lawyer Mark Heller said Tuesday, according to Newsday. "Ms. Lohan has considered her options. She's very pleased with this disposition and it's a beautiful beginning to a holy week."
