Lindsay’s “Get out of Jail Free” card

Lindsay Lohan out of jail

Lindsay Lohan has been released from prison. The ‘Mean Girls’ actress left the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California, after serving just 13 days of a 90-day sentence, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department has confirmed.

The 24-year-old star was taken straight to the UCLA Medical Center to begin her court-ordered 90-day rehab stint.

Lindsay had originally been due to enter Morningside Recovery rehab centre in Newport Beach, California, but Judge Marsha Revel changed her treatment destination to UCLA amid concerns information about her treatment would be leaked to the public.

It has also been claimed Lindsay will be treated at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles instead of Morningside Recovery facility as planned – after two court-appointed psychiatrists told Judge Revel they felt it would better fit Lindsay’s needs.

Gossip website TMZ reported: “It was the facility favoured by everyone because the treatment program was perfectly suited for Lindsay’s psychiatric and drug problems.

“We’re told Lindsay will not be in the psych ward – rather this is an intense specialised program to deal with psychological, as well as addiction problems.”

It has been claimed Lindsay will be isolated from her family during her stay in the rehab facility – a move which has been blasted as “stupid” by her estranged father Michael Lohan.

He told “It is beyond a reasonable doubt stupid. Part of Lindsay’s healing process is mending fences with her family.”

Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in prison and 90 days in rehab last month after violating the terms of probation set from her 2007 driving under the influence (DUI) conviction.

Wow out of jail straight to rehab? Does that really send a positive message to young people about punishment? Your comments welcome!
