    A judge is ringing up some justice for this Bling Ring cohort.

    Diana Tamayo was sentenced to three years' probation Friday after pleading no contest to swiping luxury items from the home of Lindsay Lohan as part of a notorious cabal of young Los Angelenos who burglarized the homes of a slew of celebs, E! News has confirmed.

    Per the L.A. County District Attorney's Office, the 21-year-old was also slapped with 60 days of community service, plus time already served at a county jail.

    By entering a no-contest plea, Tamayo skirted a potential six-year jail sentence should the case have gone to trial and had she been convicted.

    Two other suspects, Courtney Leigh Ames and Roy Lopez Jr., will face a judge in November for allegedly pilfering items from the home of Paris Hilton.

    From late 2008 through 2009, the infamous Bling Ring stole an estimated $3 million worth of jewelry, designer clothing and art from stars like Lohan and Hilton, as well as Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson and Audrina Partridge.

    Fellow Bling Ring member turned Pretty Wild star Alexis Neiers was sentenced to 180 days in jail for burglarizing Bloom's home (she ended serving only 30 days), while presumed mastermind Rachel Lee was slapped with a four-year jail term for swiping items from Partridge's house.

    In March, Nick Prugo was sentenced to two years behind bars after pleading no contest to breaking into Hilton and Lohan's homes; he also agreed to testify against other Bling Ring members.

    The sensational case has certainly provided enough creative fodder for Hollywood: Next year, Sofia Coppola is set to release a fictionalized film about the debacle, aptly titled Bling Ring and starring Emma Watson.

    We're ready for some (scene) stealin'.

    UPDATE 12/14/12: Courtney Leigh Ames pleaded no contest to a single felony charge of possessing stolen goods. She admitted to receiving a jacket stolen from Hilton's home. Ames will be sentenced on Feb. 1 and is expected to receive three years of supervised probation and serve 60 days of community service.
