Los Angeles, California (CNN) - Actress Lindsay Lohan was released from the Lynwood Correctional Facility early Monday morning after less than two weeks behind bars, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.
Lohan was released at 1:35 a.m. (4:35 a.m. ET), Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Benjamin Grubb said. He said she was taken to a treatment facility.
After Lohan was taken to jail July 20, a sheriff's spokesman said her stay would likely last between 13 and 15 days.
Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel sentenced Lohan to 90 days in jail for missing alcohol counseling sessions in violation of her probation.
But the sheriff, who runs the jail, has the power to release prisoners early because of jail overcrowding.
Lohan was also sentenced to spend 90 days in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program after her jail term is completed. Revel ordered Lohan to enter a program within 24 hours of leaving jail.
"I would like the transition to be sooner rather than later," Revel said last month.
