All done! LiLo’s necklace theft probation is over


The 28-year-old Mean Girls actress was prosecuted in 2011 after she was accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, California store.

Lindsay was already embroiled in legal trouble at the time, and her jewellery theft conviction saw her being punished for violating a probation order she was already under.

But according to Page Six, the star is now off the hook in the necklace theft matter after the magistrate overseeing the case gave her a glowing probation review.

The outlet reports that on Thursday November 6 Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney confirmed during a hearing Lindsay has completed “102 hours of a 240-hour community service sentence”. As a result of her efforts, Judge Dabney lifted the probation order she was under in relation to the case.

But Lindsay remains under probation after she pled no contest to misdemeanour charges of reckless driving and providing false information to a police officer in 2012. In June of the same year, the actress rear-ended her rented Porsche into an 18-wheel truck on the Pacific Coast Highway while on her way to the set of her made-for-television movie, Liz & Dick.

Lindsay has had many brushes with the law and she spent 14 days of a 90-day sentence in prison 2010 after a judge ruled she’d violated the terms of her 2007 DUI probation by missing mandatory classes and meetings. She was arrested twice within weeks for driving under the influence seven years ago.

Lindsay was released from rehab last year and has kept out of trouble since. She’s now focusing on her career and is currently performing in a production of Speed-the-Plow in London, UK.
