Lindsay Lohan's court-ordered 90-day stint in a rehabilitation facility may be coming to an end sooner than anyone expected.
In an interview with RadarOnline.com, Danette Meyers, the prosecutor in Lohan's case, said that the staff at the UCLA Medical Center where the actress is being treated are considering recommending that she be released early from the facility.
"My understanding from conversations with [Lohan's attorney] Shawn Chapman Holley is that Miss Lohan could be released early," Meyers said. "It is looking as if that is what the health-care professionals are going to recommend. ... How much earlier she could be released, I'm unsure of at this point."
The Associated Press reported that Lohan could be released as early as Friday (August 13), citing a spokesperson at the Los Angeles District Attorney's office who said that the actress' program might be "modified," meaning that she could switch from an in-patient program to an out-patient program.
Lohan checked into the rehab center on August 2, after serving 13 days of a three-month sentence in Los Angeles county jail. She was originally set to begin her program at the Morningside Recovery center in Newport Beach, California, but the judge in her case, Marsha Revel, ordered a last-minute switch to the UCLA facility for what were described as security reasons. (Earlier this week Revel removed herself from the case.)
And though Revel ordered Lohan to complete a 90-day stint at the treatment center, Meyers said that the District Attorney's office will follow the recommendation of the UCLA staff.
"I will follow what the health care professionals advise," Meyers told Radar. "That could involve follow-up treatment for Miss Lohan, however, it is my understanding that it is looking like the health care professionals will be recommending that she be released earlier than the 90 days Judge Revel previously ordered."
