Lindsay Lohan Back to Partying after Release from House Arrest

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan was released early from her house arrest sentence on Wednesday and she wasted no time taking full advantage of her newfound freedom.

Lohan spent 35 days confined to her home after pleading no contest to misdemeanor necklace theft, but Wednesday evening she visited the Lexington Social House for a friend's party.  An onlooker told People.com, Lohan "was in a good mood.  She definitely seemed happy to be free and out celebrating with friends."

As for Lohan's thoughts on her first night on the town, she tweeted, "Of course me going to my best friends going away dinner is a headline - especially on my first day out of my house in 35 days. That does not give anyone the right to have a field day and manifest stories. IT WAS A GOING AWAY DINNER,THAT WAS IT. Nothing exciting happened aside from the very yummy hummus and pita. If anyone caused me to nearly fall it was the psychotic paparazzi.... off to the gym now- have a lovely day xo"

Lohan is no longer prohibited from consuming alcohol, but she will remain on probation from her two DUI cases in 2007 for the next three years.  She is due back in court on July 21, and still must complete her community service, but she is not required to submit to random drug or alcohol testing.

Lindsay Lohan Completes House Arrest

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- With the removal of a GPS ankle bracelet, Lindsay Lohan is again a free woman.

The 24-year-old actress' 35 days of home confinement came to an end around 10 a.m. PT Wednesday.

She still needs to complete 480 hours of community service. The Mean Girls and Machete star will continue working at a Los Angeles-based women's shelter and will also spend some time working at the Los Angeles County Morgue.

Her rep Steve Honig insists she's "very focused" on finishing her service.

Lohan has expressed her desire to put her most recent run-in with the law behind her.

The actress was sentenced to four months in jail in May for violating her probation in a 2007 drunken driving case when she reportedly swiped a necklace from a jewelry store earlier this year. She pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor theft charge and was allowed to serve time under home confinement thanks to overcrowding at Los Angeles' only women's prison.

Lindsay Lohan Shoots Commercial from Living Room

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan is currently on house arrest, but that hasn't stopped her from raking in a few bucks from the comfort of her own home.

The Mean Girls star set up a camera in her living room and shot a short commercial for the online auction site Beezid.com.

E! reports that Lohan was originally offered $25,000 to do the commercial but after she turned it down, the company raised the offer, giving her $10,000 to spend on the site.  A rep for Beezid told E! they chose Lohan because she's a "huge shopper" who had "extra time right now."

Lohan will finish her 35-day house arrest sentence in just over a week.

Lindsay Lohan Begins House Arrest Stint

Toby Canham/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan's latest stint in lockdown has begun, but this time, she's at home. The 24-year-old actress began serving house arrest Thursday morning after turning herself in to California's Lynwood Jail.

"She is now confined to the interior premises of her home at all times," L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told People magazine.

Lohan was sentenced to four months in jail after pleading no contest to stealing a $2,500 necklace, but because of jail overcrowding, she'll serve her time at home. She's expected to serve about 35 days.

Lindsay Lohan Likely to Serve 14 Days House Arrest

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, entered a no-contest plea Wednesday on the actress' misdemeanor theft charge, meaning Lohan, who did not appear in court, does not admit guilt but her case gets logged as a conviction.

Lohan, 24, allegedly stole a $2,500 necklace from the Venice, Calif., jewelry store Kamofie & Company in January.

Last month, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner reduced the theft charge from a felony to a misdemeanor. Sautner also sentenced Lohan to 120 days in jail for violating her probation. In addition, the actress was ordered to serve 480 hours of community service at the Downtown Women's Center as well as janitorial duties at the L.A. County Coroner's department.

On Wednesday, Holley told the court that it appears as though Lohan will be approved to serve her time through house arrest, and elaborated at a press conference after the hearing.

"As they would with any other person with a similar sentence, sheriffs will determine if she is eligible for early release and electronic monitoring," she said.

L.A. County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said a 120-day sentence effectively gets reduced to 71 days because of good behavior, and because of overcrowding it is further reduced to about 14 days, even if Lohan serves her time at home.

Lohan must surrender to the sheriff's department on June 17, at which time a decision will be made on whether she qualifies for home monitoring.
