The troubled actress has also been sentenced to three years probation, attend The Shoplifter’s Alternative program, pay fines of $180 and stay away from jeweler Kanofie & Co. after pleading no contest to stealing a necklace from the store.

Lindsay – who has previously repeatedly insisted she did nothing wrong - did not appear in court on Wednesday morning to hear the sentencing.

Last month, the actress was deemed to have breached the terms of her 2007 probation – which was set following a driving under the influence conviction – because of the theft charges.

She was sentenced to 480 hours of community service and 120 days jail, for which she must turn herself in on June 17.

The 24-year-old star – who began her community service last week – has made an application to serve the jail term under house arrest, a move which is expected to be approved.

Lindsay recently admitted she has “made a lot of poor decisions” and has feared her numerous arrests and rehab stints would ruin her career.

She said: "I've made a lot of poor decisions in the past and I'm dealing with the consequences of those decisions so there were times when I was concerned but I'm a fighter and I know that I have a lot of work to do to gain the respect back and I'm willing to do the work that I have to do to be an actress."
