LOS ANGELES — A prosecutor said Wednesday it appears Lindsay Lohan has completed more than 100 hours of community service, the final term of her sentence in a 2012 reckless driving case.

Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said he does not have any concerns about Lohan's work in recent weeks with groups in New York.

"It looks like she's completed her hours," White said.

His comments came one day before Lohan's lawyer is scheduled to update a judge on the actress' progress.

The "Mean Girls" star is under a deadline to complete more than 100 hours of community service by Thursday's court hearing. A judge could end her probation in the case, filed after Lohan crashed on Pacific Coast Highway while on the way to a film shoot in 2012.

At a May 7 court hearing, Lohan still had 115 hours of work left. That prompted Superior Court Judge Mark Young to warn that there would be consequences if the actress missed another deadline.

Lohan, 28, was ordered to redo 125 hours of service after White objected to her work in London, citing credit she received for meeting with fans of a stage production of "Speed-the-Plow." Lohan received credit for some of her work on the show, despite being assigned to a charity for underprivileged children and disabled adults.

If the judge ends Lohan's case, it will be the first time in nearly eight years she has not been on probation in Los Angeles.

Lohan was first placed on probation in August 2007 after she was charged with driving under the influence and drug charges after two arrests earlier that year. She failed to complete the terms of that case, prompting judges to sentence her to rehab, jail and morgue duty.

In early 2011, Lohan's probation was extended after she was sentenced in a necklace theft case. Both the DUI and theft cases have been dismissed.
