Embattled actress Lindsay Lohan has been released from house arrest after serving 35 days in home confinement.
The Mean Girls star was sentenced to three months under house arrest for violating her probation from a 2007 DUI case by taking a necklace from a California jewelry store.

She was initially handed a 120-day jail sentence, but she was allowed to serve time at home in Venice. California due to prison overcrowding.

And on Wednesday, at around 10.20am local time, Lohan was declared a free woman.

Even though the star is now able to leave her home, she must still abide by the terms of her release and complete 480 hours of community service and take an anti-shoplifting class.

Lohan feared her home arrest would be extended last week when she was ordered back to court to face allegations she had failed an alcohol test. But she escaped a possible jail stint when a judge ruled the booze ban had expired at the time of the test.

The actress will be free to celebrate her 25th birthday on Saturday.

Leaving her home on Wednesday afternoon, Lohan told reporters, “I’m excited to start community service and focus on my work.”
