Lindsay Lohan was able to complete her community service hours in the nick of time.
The actress waited until the last minute to perform her service hours in New York city, and so had to double her work in order to avoid jail time as the May 28 deadline loomed.
Lohan had more than 100 hours to finish, but by Thursday morning, during her hearing in California, the judge went though her service logs and determined that she had met her required hours.
This meant that her probation for her reckless driving case in 2012 had officially been lifted.
Lohan was not in court during this hearing.
But even before the court hearing, the “Mean Girls” star herself posted a message on her Instagram account confirming that she had successfully completed her work hours.
She shared a message of appreciation to tall the organizations where she volunteered at.
According to NBC New York , their source said that Lohan actually exceeded the hours she had to finish, working around 122 hours.
Aside from her volunteer service at the Duffield Child Care center in Brooklyn, the actress wored 10 to 12 hour shifts during the weekend at another volunteer center.
NBC New York reported exclusively on the actress’ first day at work at the Duffield center, where she did paper work and also assisted the teachers in the classrooms.
Lohan was reportedly two hours late during her first day back at the Brooklyn Daycare Center.
She was spotted holding a copy of the Muslim holy book, the Qur’an.
The actress spent nearly eight years on probation for several cases that were filed against her.
Over the eight years, Lohan spent time in jail and did time in rehab for reasons such as missing her court-ordered counselling sessions, and being absent from her community volunteer work.
