Lindsay Lohan begins house arrest sentence

Friday May 27, 2011

Lindsay Lohan has begun 35 days of house arrest.

Rather than going to jail, the 24-year-old has been fitted with an ankle monitor and will serve her sentence from her beachside townhouse in Miami.

A sheriff's official said the troubled star starting serving her term on Thursday after turning herself in at a jail facility.

He added that the actress had been cooperative when she turned herself in.

In April, the Mean Girls actress was sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating her probation in a 2007 drunken driving case by taking a necklace without permission.

Her Miami abode features four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a rooftop deck that boasts views of the city.
