Lindsay Lohan was released from a Los Angeles County jail just hours after she turned herself in to serve a 30-day sentence for violating probation.
Deputy Tony Moore said Lohan was released from the Century Regional Detention facility in Lynwood early Monday morning, less than five hours after she reported to jail.
Lohan was released after serving what amounts to a fraction of a fraction of her sentence due to chronic overcrowding in the California prison system.
She was given an additional week to turn herself in so she could complete a nude photo shoot for Playboy magazine. Had she been unable to complete the shoot, she could have been held in breach of contract by the men’s magazine, which reportedly paid her almost a million dollars for the spread.
