Tuesday saw the release of Lindsay Lohan from her drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that is located in Los Angeles, reported www.perthnow.com. Lindsay Lohan had to sign discharge papers to be able to get out of the center. Despite being sentenced to 90 days in rehab, she spent only three weeks there. This follows her 90-day jail sentence, which saw her released after two weeks. Lindsay had been at the UCLA center as a part of the inpatient treatment program.
The 24-year-old troubled actress will have her case heard in court today with a new judge after Judge Marsha Revel recused herself from the case.
There was a well crafted plan to get her out of the UCLA Medical Center so that the media attention can be avoided: three cars were present outside the center to take her out from the center and avoid paparazzi. A chauffeur driven car was waiting for her at the backdoor of the Medical Center, said the report in www.people.com.
Lindsay will continue treatment as she will receive outpatient care. She was released from the rehab following a testimony from the doctors who were of the belief that a 90-day sentence was too long for her. Her legal team had then successfully demanded the early release for her.
She was sentenced to three months in prison, followed by three months in rehab after violating the terms of her probation from a 2007 DUI case.
