After serving only 13 days of her 90-day sentence, Lindsay Lohan was released from a Los Angeles county jail. She apparently was released at 1:35 a.m. on Monday and taken straight to a rehab facility.
Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore says, "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, "when an inmate is released, they leave with the clothes they came in. 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."
Lohan will spend the next 90 days at a rehab facility run by UCLA Medical Center. Originally, she was supposed to be going into a different facility, but the judge changed the location after concerns about Lindsay's treatment information being leaked. District attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison said, "There was concern that [Morningside Recovery] was not a secure enough facility."
It was also reported that Judge Marsha Revel was also concerned that drugs could be easily passed to Lindsay at the other facility.
