A judge in Courtney Love's drug case on Friday ordered her to appear in a Los Angeles court for sentencing within 24 hours after she is released from a New York hospital.

Attorney Michael Rosenstein has said Love was hospitalized for a gynecological medical condition and will return to L.A. after being released.

The artist pleaded guilty May 25 to a misdemeanor count of being under the influence of a controlled substance. She is expected to be ordered into a drug-treatment program.

Love has two other cases pending against her. A hearing is set for July 23 in a drug-possession case, and she has been charged with hitting a woman with a bottle in April.

A warrant was issued for her arrest after she failed to appear for her arraignment in Los Angeles on the assault charge. The warrant was issued July 9 -- the same day she was hospitalized in New York.
