Free at last! Lohan ends probation.

LOS ANGELES: Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan avoided jail Wednesday as prosecutors said she has completed more than 100 hours of community service that were required following a reckless driving conviction.Resolving the reckless driving case was not without its hiccups — Lohan missed a deadline last year to complete her community service, and a prosecutor criticized her efforts, noting she was given credit for meeting fans of a London stage play and other questionable activities.

The Mean Girls actress was given until Thursday to complete 125 hours of volunteer work after her previously logged hours in London were rejected by a judge, who questioned their legitimacy.”Hard work pays off,” the actress wrote on Instagram, posting a TMZ headline of her newfound status. “Thank you to all those that allowed me to volunteer while in nyc.

Lohan raced against time to fulfil her requirement at the Duffield Children’s Center in Brooklyn, New York, and on Wednesday, the eve of her deadline, Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White confirmed she had completed her obligations. Last week the 28-year-old posted a photo on Instagram of a castle-like play area built at the center using large blue blocks, and wrote: “We built this for the kids today! Despite taking a plea deal that allowed her to avoid jail time, Lohan struggled to comply with the terms of her sentence and was ordered jailed after she missed a court appearance. Lohan’s court appearances had a tendency to become major spectacles, with deputies creating a red carpet-worthy line so photographers could document the starlet’s entrances and exits to court.

Commentators often critiqued Lohan’s fashion and choice of hair color, and someone even showered the actress in confetti as she walked into the Beverly Hills courthouse for one hearing. Lohan breaks down as a Beverly Hills judge sentences her in July 2010 to 90 days in jail for missing a string of alcohol education classes imposed for a 2007 drunk driving arrest. One of her attorneys told a judge the actress was “ensconced in the bosom” of a rehab facility when in reality Lohan only briefly checked in and was photographed shopping at an electronics store around the time of the hearing.
