Lindsay Lohan: Out Of The Frying Pan Into The Fire

LOS ANGELES, Cali.- After serving 13 days of a three-month sentence in a Los Angeles county jail, Lindsay Lohan was released at 1:35 a.m. on Monday (August 2) and driven straight to a rehab facility. According to the Los Angeles Times, sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore confirmed that the 24-year-old actress would go straight to a court-ordered treatment facility upon release, but he would not name the program. 

"The court order specified that certain named people would pick her up. It's our understanding she went directly to a treatment center," he said, adding that, "she was given two huge bags full of mail and books. She was noticeably moved by the amount of mail and books sent to her. She thanked everybody as she left." 

The paper reported that there was the expected crush of media outside the Century Regional Detention Facility awaiting the release of Lohan, who began serving her sentence for violating probation from a 2007 conviction for DUI on July 20. 

To ensure her safety behind bars, officials kept Lohan away from other inmates, and, like many low-level, non-violent offenders, she was released for good behavior after serving less than a quarter of her sentence, due to chronic overcrowding at the facility. 

People reports that Lohan will spend her 90-day rehab sentence at a facility run by UCLA Medical Center. She was originally slated to check into a different facility, but the judge in the case changed the location after fearing information could be leaked about Lohan's treatment. 

Lohan could potentially be sent back to jail if the court is notified of any additional probation violations during her treatment and even after her release she will undergo a year of random drug testing.
