It looks like Lindsay Lohan's mother Dina Lohan is following in her daughter's footsteps.

On Tuesday, during her court appearance in New York, Dina pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and speeding.

Last September, Dina was stopped by a law enforcement officer for driving 77 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone, in Oyster Bay, New York. She was then arrested after her blood alcohol level was checked by the officer, and measured .20 which is more than double the legal limit. Dina told the officer that she was speeding because she was trying to flee from the paparazzi.

Dina is scheduled to be sentenced on June 3. She is expected to receive 100 hours of community service, in replace of jail time. Dina will also have to attend drunk driving classes, and pay $3,000 in fines and fees. Her license has been revoked, and an interlock device must be placed on her vehicle before she can drive. Once the device is installed, she will be able to resume driving, even though her license will still be revoked. Rather than the original nine points, Dina will only receive three on her license.

"Considering this is the first day of Passover, we were very pleased to receive an offer which would resolve her criminal case in Nassau County with a commitment of no jail, no probation, and that afforded her the opportunity to resume her driving privileges shortly," Dina's lawyer Mark Heller said on Tuesday. "She felt this was a great beginning for the Holy week and she was happy with that result."
