OTRC: Lindsay Lohan released hours after checking into jail

Lindsay Lohan reacts as a judge sentenced her to 30 days in jail for violating her probation. She apppeared at a hearing at a Los Angeles court on Nov. 2, 2011.

Lindsay Lohan was released from jail Monday, less than five hours after checking in to serve her 30-day sentence for violating her probation, officials confirmed to OnTheRedCarpet.com.

The 25-year-old had until Nov. 9 to report to jail, but she checked into the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., at 8:48 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

A sheriff's department spokesperson had said that because the "Mean Girls" star is a nonviolent offender facing less than 90 days in jail, she was expected to get out early due to jail overcrowding.

The department website earlier listed that Lohan's projected release date was Nov. 16.

Lohan's probation was revoked last month after a judge ruled the actress violated it by skipping community service appointments at a women's shelter.

Lohan was earlier this year ordered to complete 480 hours of community service at a women's shelter and at a morgue as part of a sentence handed down for a misdemeanor theft charge, which had in itself constituted a violation of her probation for a 2007 drunken driving and cocaine possession case. The judge reinstated the actress' probation after handing down her sentence on Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Lohan's next court appearance was scheduled for Dec. 14.

Also on Monday, Lohan's spokesperson confirmed that the actress recently posed for Playboy magazine and will be featured on the cover of an upcoming issue. Check out details.
