Lindsay Lohan has been released from prison – just 13 days into her 90 day sentence.
“She was released at 1:35 a.m.,” Los Angeles Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said outside the jail. “She has been sent directly to her next destination, which is a treatment center. And she will now be under the supervision of the L.A. County probation department. This concludes her custody.”
The actress had been serving a 90-day sentence for violating probation in a DUI case, but served a reduced sentence for good behavior and due to the sheriff’s long-standing policy of releasing nonviolent offenders early because of severe overcrowding.
Lohan was expected to serve her court-ordered three months in rehab at an Orange County, Calif., facility. According to People, the judge in her case changed her mind (last minute over the weekend) because of security at the facility where she was expected to be treated. The judge was concerned that drugs could be easily passed onto the actress, and therefore approved of an undisclosed L.A.-area rehab center. The facility is at UCLA Medical Center.
Lohan also faces a year of random drug testing. The actress must stay clean and sober until August 2011, when her probation term is over. She is, however, allowed to take a number of prescription medications.
Prescription medications has been the downfall of too many actors/actresses this year – that can’t be a good idea. Hopefully they will have a reputable doctor overseeing her medication intake.
