Lindsay Lohan completes community service hours, will avoid jail

A judge found today that Lindsay Lohan has completed more than 100 community service hours required as part of her probation stemming from a 2012 traffic crash, meeting the conditions necessary for her to stay out of jail.

The judge ruled that, with the community service requirements met, Lohan is no longer on probation.

The ruling had been expected.

“I believe she has successfully completed her community service obligation to the court,” Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White told City News Service on the eve of this morning’s hearing at the Airport Branch Courthouse on La Cienega Boulevard.

During a March 7 court hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark A. Young said Lohan had only completed roughly nine of the 125 community service hours she was required to perform as a condition of her probation.

Her attorney, Shawn Holley, said Lohan was having trouble completing her community service in London, where she has been living, due to the distance she has to travel, the cost of transportation and limits on the number of hours she can perform each day.

Young agreed to allow Lohan to travel to New York and complete her community service hours working with children at Brooklyn Community Services. The judge warned that Lohan had until today to complete the hours, or “there will be consequences” — meaning likely jail time.

Last week, Lohan, 28, posted a photo on her Instagram account of a castle-like play area built at the center using large blue blocks, and wrote, “We built this for the kids today! So cute!!”

When she first arrived at the center two weeks ago, she wrote on Twitter, “So happy to be finally helping out all the kids at (the center) — I just hope that I can make a difference to their lives.”

Lohan was originally ordered to perform 240 hours of community service, which her attorney said the actress had completed, but Santa Monica prosecutors objected to the type of work the actress was doing in London, saying she was getting credit for activities such as a meet-and-greet with volunteers and a “work shadowing experience” in London with two young people who were “basically hanging out with her.”

At a hearing in February, Young agreed and ordered Lohan to perform another 125 hours of community service. He also extended her probation until today.

The actress pleaded no contest in March 2013 to reckless driving and lying to police in connection with a June 8, 2012, collision in the 1100 block of Pacific Coast Highway involving a Porsche and a dump truck.

Lohan told officers she was a passenger in the car, but investigators later determined the actress was behind the wheel when the Porsche crashed into the rear of the truck.

As a result of her plea, Lohan was ordered to complete 30 days — equaling 240 hours — of community service, spend 90 days in a locked rehabilitation facility and to 18 months of psychotherapy during a two-year probationary term.
