Lindsay Lohan begins house arrest

Lindsay Lohan is now confined to her Venice, Calif., home.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Lohan, 24, arrived at the Lynwood Jail around 5 a.m., where she was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet and then sent home. L.A. sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed Lohan’s house arrest to People.

Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Holley previously entered a no-contest plea on behalf of the actress for a misdemeanor grand theft charge related to Lohan’s alleged theft of a necklace from a Santa Monica jewelry store. A judge ordered Lohan to seek psychological counseling and remain on probation in response to the plea. The soon-to-be-costar of “Gotti: Three Generations” is on house arrest because a judge previously ruled that Lohan’s alleged involvement in the theft case was a violation of her probation in a 2007 DUI case.

People estimates that Lohan will be confined for “a little over two weeks,” while TMZ was told that she’ll “spend roughly 35 days” at home. Lohan’s sentence also includes 480 hours of community service, which she will serve at a women’s shelter and a coroner’s office.
