A Los Angeles judge declared on Thursday that actress Lindsay Lohan's probation stemming from a 2007 drunk driving case in Beverly Hills outside Los Angeles has ended, as she had successfully completed all requirements.

The "Mean Girls" starlet met all the terms including community service hours and therapy sessions, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner ruled. If Lohan had not completed the required terms, she could spend 270 days behind bars.

However, the 25-year-old actress is not totally free. She still has to complete her two-and-a-half year probation stemming from a theft of a necklace from a Venice jewelry store in southern California. The judge has reduced that to unsupervised, summary and informal probation which will terminate on May 24, 2014.

"I know it's kinda hard when people are following you all of the time, but that's the life you chose," Judge Sautner said. She stressed that the only terms of probation she is still facing are "to obey all laws".

"What you've done has really opened a lot of doors for me," Lohan said to the judge. She and her lawyer, Shawn Holley, thanked the judge and hugged.

The former Disney darling rose to fame between 2003 and 2005 when she appeared in title roles in the films of "Freaky Friday," "Mean Girls" and "Herbie: Fully Loaded". Her career was interrupted in 2007 when she was involved in two drunk driving incidents and three visits to rehabilitation facilities.

She is in line to portray the late Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime film on basic cable. She is also expected to make a guest appearance on the hit Fox series "Glee".
