After hurriedly completing her remaining 115 hours of community service in just 16 days, Lindsay Lohan was granted a sense of freedom she reportedly hasn't experienced in nearly eight years. On Thursday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Young ruled that Lohan had successfully completed her required community service hours — a surely tedious task rewarded with the lifting of her probation.

Young spoke highly of Lohan's lawyer Shawn Holley, particularly with regards to Holley's successful coaxing of Lohan on the topic of actually finishing her required community service hours — a requirement stemming from a 2012 reckless driving incident, an incident decidedly undramatic when viewed within the overall context of Lohan's storied court history.

Though Lohan was not present for Young's ruling, she did express general gratitude and a fondness for the probationless future:

Though Lohan's turn in the 2013 Bret Easton Ellis film The Canyons failed to appropriately reignite her career, I would argue there is still room in this century for a proper Lindsay Lohan comeback.
