Lilo avoids jail with 125 hours of community service.

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.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Young ruled on Thursday that the actress – who was not present at the hearing – has completed her mandatory community service hours stemming from a 2012 reckless driving case, according to the Associated Press. “I am very grateful to those at Brooklyn Community Services, Duffield and The Ali Forney Center for welcoming me into their services and allowing me to finish my court ordered Community Service hours,” Lohan tells PEOPLE in a statement. In court on Thursday, Judge Young reportedly praised Holley, who’s represented the star in this and previous court cases, for getting Lohan to complete her hours in recent weeks. She had only completed about nine of 125 hours at that time. ‘I believe she has successfully completed her community service obligation to the court,’ said Santa Monica prosecutor Terry White on Wednesday. Earlier in the month, the 28-year-old’s lawyers admitted to Young that their client had logged only 10 of the remaining 125 hours she was ordered to complete in February. Young said Thursday morning. “Probation is terminated as of today.” Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Holley cheered the decision as she exited the Los Angeles courthouse alongside Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White, the prosecutor on Lohan’s 2012 case involving reckless driving and lying to a police officer. “It’s just a thrill for me to be able to walk out with Mr.

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! After rocketing to stardom for films ‘The Parent Trap,’ ‘Freaky Friday’ and ‘Mean Girls,’ Lohan has been in and out of rehab with drug problems and has had numerous encounters with the law.

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.

I know she will.” Beyond the hours she served at BCS’s Duffield Children’s Center in Fort Greene, Lohan also worked at AFC’s 24-hour program for LGBT youth who’ve been kicked out of their homes, Holley said “I think everyone appreciates how talented she is. 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 has reported for her shifts at agreed upon times and has demonstrated a responsible and professional demeanor in her approach to volunteering,” AFC coordinator Alexander Roque wrote.

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.
