However it's not that simple for Sierra, as Hillsborough County Circuit Court Judge Daniel Perry has previously stated he doesn't want Sierra to use treatment as a way to aid her celebrity status and thus "glamorize" being a drug addict. At a January hearing, he ordered she stay at least 100 yards from microphones and cameras.
Since Sierra's probation violation case is in the books, the 23-year-old's case has returned to the court division run by Judge Greg Holder, The Tribune reported. Sierra's attorney John Fitzgibbons has filed a request with Holder to set Perry's previous ruling aside.
Fitzgibbons and Celebrity Rehab host Drew "Dr. Drew" Pinsky are scheduled to appear before Holden on Thursday to plead their case, according to The Tribune, which added Sierra will not be in attendance.
Following filming for Celebrity Rehab's first season last fall, Sierra was arrested after she was being booted from a Florida bar and allegedly became physically and verbally combative with police. She was charged with disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest without violence and probation violation before subsequently pleading not guilty.
Sierra was sentenced to a yearlong stint in rehab followed by three years probation. Fitzgibbons told The Tribune Sierra is continuing her treatment and participating in the show's second installment would help her remain clean and sober.
