Actress Lindsay Lohan's mother Dina Lohan has pleaded guilty to a drunk driving charge, after initially maintaining her innocence, and to speeding after reaching a plea deal that will keep her out of jail.

The 51-year-old entered her plea on Tuesday, April 15, and awaits sentencing on June 3. She was arrested on the night of Sept. 12 after being pulled over on a highway for allegedly going 77 mph in a 55-mph zone. Authorities said a breath test showed her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was .20 percent -- more than twice the legal limit.

That month, she pleaded not guilty to charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI), Aggravated DWI and speeding. She and prosecutors recently reached a plea deal under which the first drunk driving charges would be removed.

"This being the first day of Passover, Dina Lohan was very gratified to receive an offer that we could not pass over - no jail, no probation and the opportunity to resume her driving privileges," her lawyer, Mark Heller, told ABC News. "She felt this was a great start to the Holy Week."

The Jewish week-long holiday of Passover began on Monday night, April 14.

Dina's license was suspended following her arrest and a judge told her he plans to revoke it for a year, according to Newsday. The newspaper also said he told her he wants her to perform 100 hours of community service before her sentencing date and that he plans to make her complete a 16-hour drug and alcohol rehabilitation program for drivers.

Dina must also install Ignition Interlock devices in all vehicles she drives. The machines test a person's Breath Alcohol Content and prohibit cars from starting if they are over the legal limit. She will also have to pay at least $2,800 in fines, her lawyer, Mark Heller told ABC News.
