LOS ANGELES (AP) – A judge has ordered Lindsay Lohan to return to rehab instead of jail for a failed drug test.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden S. Fox ordered the actress to continue rehab until Jan. 3.

Fox’s sentence means Lohan will not be returning to a suburban Los Angeles women’s jail for a fourth time.

The judge had threatened to send the “Mean Girls” star to jail for 30 days for each drug test she skipped or failed. He ordered her held for nearly a month during a hearing in September, but another judge overturned his ruling and Lohan has been free on bail and in rehab since then.

Her current legal woes are the result of drug and drunken driving charges being filed in 2007 after a pair of high-profile arrests.
