Free at last! Lohan ends probation.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Few stars have become more closely associated with Los Angeles’ court system than Lindsay Lohan, whose first arrest in May 2007 sparked a nearly eight-year court saga that finally ended Thursday.

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.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Young on Thursday ended Lohan’s probation in a reckless driving case, closing the last of a series of LA criminal cases that have dogged the actress for years. Lohan’s career was already in trouble when she was arrested twice for driving under the influence in 2007, but the charges and two ensuing court cases cost the once-promising actress roles, time and prestige.

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. Her frequent court arrivals replaced red carpet appearances, and her mandatory stints in rehab, morgue duty and house arrest left little time for acting work. Over the years, the actress was briefly jailed five times and sentenced to rehab for a variety of violations ranging from failing to perform her community service to skipping counseling sessions. 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.
