After Lindsay Lohan's lawyers reached a deal with prosecutors Monday, she pleaded no contest to reckless driving and lying to cops in connection with a car crash that happened in California in June 2012, avoiding jail time but agreeing to be locked up in rehab for three months.

A judge in California also found her in violation of her probation in connection with a necklace theft in 2011.

Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney sentenced Lohan to 180 days in jail, but suspended the sentence as long as she complies with the term of the new probation. Lindsay must: stay for 90 days in a drug-treatment facility with locked doors and no day passes, complete 18 months psychological or psychiatric treatment, submit to drug testing and personal searches without a warrant, stay away from places where drugs are used or sold, stay away from other drug users, perform 30 days of community labor after rehab is over, and obey all laws.

Judge Dabney also gave her some plain advice: "Don't drive." He urged her to stay out of the driver's seat, especially if she returns to New York, and complete all terms of her probation. He warned her that if she violates any term of the probation that she will get no more breaks.

Lohan's lawyer indicated that his client intends to enter rehab somewhere in New York.
