Dina Lohan pleads guilty to driving while intoxicated
16 APRIL 2014
Dina Lohan, the mother of Lindsay Lohan, has pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated (DWI) and speeding.
The 51-year-old appeared before a judge in a Long Island courtroom on Tuesday, with her famous daughter's attorney Mark Heller by her side.
Sentencing will not take place until 3 June, but Dina is expected to be sentenced to 100 hours of community service.

Court sources told TMZ that the mother-of-four is also likely to have her licence revoked and have an interlock device installed on her vehicle.
She will have to attend a mandatory drinking and driving course and a victim impact panel, as well as paying related fines and fees.
The charges stem back to September, when Dina was arrested on Long Island. She was issued a ticket for driving 77 mph in a 55 mph zone, and a breath test then revealed she was twice the legal alcohol limit.

In a statement at the time, Dina's lawyer said in a statement, "Dina Lohan is a good person. Her life has been dedicated to her four children.
"She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a 'parent trapped' with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to not fault of her own," he added, referencing the Disney remake that made her daughter famous.
