Lindsay Lohan's mother has avoided jail time over speeding and drunk driving charges.

A Nassau County District judge in Hempstead, N.Y., ordered Dina Lohan on Tuesday to pay more than $3,000 in fines and fees. She will also perform 100 hours of community service and participate in an anti-drunken driving program.

Her driver's license remains suspended for a year. The 51-year-old's sentence includes a requirement that she install an alcohol-detecting ignition lock on her vehicle.

Lohan pleaded guilty in April to aggravated driving while intoxicated and speeding on Long Island's Northern State Parkway in September. She has said she was fleeing paparazzi.

New York State police say Lohan, who lives in Merrick, was driving 77 mph in a 55-mph zone. They say her blood-alcohol level was 0.20, more than double the legal limit.
