Dina Lohan Sentenced for 2013 DWI

Mike Pont/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Dina Lohan was sentenced Tuesday to 100 hours of community service in Nassau District Court in New York stemming from a September 2013 DWI arrest.

The mother of actress Lindsay Lohan also had her driver's license suspended for one year, will have to use an interlock device -- which will only let her start her car if she's sober -- for a year and was ordered to participate in a drunk-driving program and victims impact panel. She was also fined $3,000.

Dina Lohan was arrested last year for driving 22 mph over the speed limit along the Northern State Parkway in Oyster Bay. She had a blood-alcohol level of 0.2 percent.

Lohan, 51, pleaded guilty last month and accepted a plea deal.

Her lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, in a statement to ABC News said, "In spite of the fact that the District Court of Nassau County dispenses the sternest DWI sentences in America, which traditionally provides for a period of incarceration and three years of probation, Dina Lohan’s sentence did not provide for any period of incarceration or probation, in light of Dina Lohan’s exemplary record with no prior arrest history and in deference to the Nassau County Screening Evaluation of Ms. Lohan, which concluded that she has no alcohol or substance abuse issues."

He continued, "Clearly, it was recognized that Dina Lohan has been a life-long resident of Nassau County, a good and loving parent to four children and the arrest was borne out of an isolated act of indiscretion on the occasion of her 50th Birthday. Dina Lohan is happy to put this unfortunate event behind her."
