LOS ANGELES — For the first time in nearly eight years, Lindsay Lohan is not on probation.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Young on Thursday ended Lohan’s probation in a reckless driving case, closing the last in a series of criminal cases that have dogged the actress for years.

Young said he reviewed community service logs and determined Lohan, 28, completed her sentence. He praised Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, telling her she did an excellent job getting the actress to complete the hours in recent weeks.

Unlike many previous proceedings in her criminal cases, Lohan was not present for the hearing. In a statement posted on Twitter, Lohan thanked Holley and the two New York groups where she did her recent flurry of service hours.

“Clean slate,” Lohan wrote. “Fresh start.”

Lohan missed a deadline last year to complete her community service, and a prosecutor criticized her efforts, noting she was given credit for meeting fans of a London stage play and other questionable activities. A judge ordered Lohan to redo 125 hours of service.

Over the years, Lohan was jailed five times and sentenced to rehab for a variety of violations ranging from failing to perform her community service to skipping counseling sessions.
