Troubled US actress Lindsay Lohan was sentenced Monday to 90 days in locked rehab facility, as part of a plea deal announced as her trial for allegedly lying to police was due to begin.

The 26-year-old was also sentenced to two years' probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges stemming from a car crash in Santa Monica in June 2012.

She will also have to carry out 30 days of community labor and undergo 18 months of psychotherapy as part of the deal, which also suspends a 180-day jail sentence for a separate probation violation.

Lohan was charged with obstructing a police officer, giving false testimony and driving recklessly, after the accident in which the Porsche she was driving hit a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway.
