Michael Lohan Sentenced to Rehab, Basically Off the Hook in Domestic Battery Case

by at . Comments

We often talk about how Lindsay Lohan beats the rap with pitifully short sentences for her numerous crimes, but she's treated like a serial killer compared to her dad.

Despite allegedly beating up ex-girlfriend Kate Major last month, repeatedly violating her restraining order, then contacting her while out on bail and resisting arrest, MiLo was not sentenced to jail time yesterday.

He got probation and rehab. Way to go, legal system!

Michael Lohan in Jail

Lohan pleaded no contest to four misdemeanors related to an incident at Kate's Tampa condo, in which he allegedly got violent when she refused to provide oral relief.

In exchange for no contest pleas, Lindsay's dastardly dad was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to spend four months at a residential treatment center.

He was also ordered to complete a domestic violence batterer’s intervention program and banned from all contact with Kate ... as if he pays attention to such orders.

Not to make Lindsay Lohan out to be a victim here, but her crimes have been non-violent offenses and she's at least required to show up in jail for a few hours.

If they had room to accommodate her, she might even be there right now. And yet MiLo goes free after his track record? It doesn't make any sense to us. You?

Michael Lohan Quotes

Just like the [topless] Marilyn Monroe spread, Linds is my daughter and there are just some things a father doesn't want to see or hear, regardless of whether they are true or false.

Michael Lohan [on daughter dating Samanta Ronson]

Michael Lohan: Maybe her mother's life revolves around the tabloids and reports, but mine doesn't. I am into setting a good example and doing good things that don't deceive or exploit my kids. But I will say this: While we were a family, you never even saw or heard a negative thing about any of us.
