Lindsay Lohan has been released from jail and sent straight to rehab after serving just 13 days of her three-month sentence.

The Mean Girls star, who was originally ordered to serve 90 days behind bars for violating her probation relating to a 2007 DUI arrest, was freed from the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California in the early hours of Monday morning.

Lohan was released at approximately 1.30am local time (PST), according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The actress was transported straight to a rehab clinic, where she will begin a court-ordered 90-day treatment program.

Los Angeles Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore says in a statement, “She was released at 1.35am. 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 was due to be admitted to the Morningside Recovery clinic in Orange County, California but Judge Marsha Revel, who has been overseeing Lohan’s case, changed her mind and ordered the actress to attend an unnamed facility in the Los Angeles area.

District Attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison tells People.com, “There was concern that (Morningside Recovery) was not a secure enough facility.”
