    Lindsay Lohan's Attorney: "She's Ready"

    Not only is Lindsay Lohan expected to serve far less than 90 days in jail, but she also may have some down time before she heads to rehab upon release. 

    That is, if her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, has it her way. 

    "It's up to the judge. I am hoping she'll have some time with her family before she goes to rehab," Holley told E! News during a stop to visit Lohan at the Century Regional Detention Facility today. "She's trying to comply with all the courts orders, but she should she able to spend 24 hours at home, in my opinion."

    That could be a toughie, however.

    Los Angeles District Attorney Office spokeswoman Jane Robinson already said Lohan will have to head straight to rehab "sooner than the 24 hours" of freedom generally allotted to offenders upon release.

    As for the embattled actress's impending release date, Lohan's on-again counsel said she was hopeful that today would be the day, although the final decision is "up to the Sheriff's Department."

    Sources familiar with the situation expect Lohan to be released after midnight and quickly shuttled to rehab, where she will remain for the next three months.

    Nevertheless, The Mean Girls star is still "doing well" in spite of the absence of a pillow lock-up, Holley said.

    Lohan headed into jail on July 20. If she is released after midnight, she will have technically served 14 days of her sentence.

    Asked if Lohan was prepared to get out, Holley replied: "She is ready."
