Lindsay Lohan released after five hours in jail
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (BDCi) – Actress Lindsay Lohan is out of jail after serving less than five hours behind bars.

She checked herself into the Century Regional Facility in Lynwood Sunday night to begin serving her 30 day sentence for violating her probation.

Since she is a nonviolent offender serving less than 90 days in jail, she was released early due to jail overcrowding.

This is her fifth jail sentence since being arrested twice for drunk driving in 2007. Lohan was sentence last week to 30 days in jail after she admitted that she violated her probation by failing to complete court-ordered psychological counseling and community service.

Lohan was ordered to attend 19 psychological counseling sessions for 45 minutes each. She canceled 14 of them, and stayed for only 30 minutes for the five sessions she did attend.

Lohan was also required to complete community service hours at the Downtown Los Angeles Women’s Shelter and the Los Angeles County Morgue. She was terminated from her assignment at the women’s shelter after she failed to show up on multiple occasions.

Of her 20 scheduled sessions, the prosecutor said, Lohan canceled 12. On three of the dates she attended, she left earlier than the required four hours.

Judge Stephanie Sautner found Lohan to be in violation of her probation and sentenced and sentenced her to 300 days in county jail. Sautner outlined a strict counseling and community service schedule for Lohan upon her release. That will substitute for the 270 additional days in jail, provided Lohan meets the terms.

Lohan must return to court on December 14.
