    Lindsay Lohan's mom can move forward with her own next chapter.

    On Tuesday, Dina Lohan was ordered to serve 100 hours of community service and pay more than $2,500 in fines when she was sentenced in Long Island court to aggravated driving while intoxicated and speeding in connection with her Sept. 12, 2013, arrest, local affiliate NBC4 reports.

    In April, the mother of four pleaded guilty to charges against her in exchange for no jail time. She originally pleaded not guilty to DUI charges stemming from her initial arrest and had to surrender her drivers' license for a year. Per NBC4, her license remains suspended, and once she gets it back, "she'll need to install an interlock device on her car for a year so she can't drive it if she's had alcohol."

    Dina will also reportedly be required to participate in a drunk driving program. For now, though, her attorney, Mark Jay Heller, tells E! News his client "is happy to put this unfortunate event behind her."

    He also said in a statement: "In spite of the fact that the District Court of Nassau County dispenses the sternest DWI Sentences in America, which traditionally provides for a period of incarceration and three years of Probation, Dina Lohan's Sentence did not provide for any period of incarceration or Probation, in light of Dina Lohan's exemplary record with no prior arrest history and in deference to the Nassau County Screening Evaluation of Ms. Lohan which concluded that she has no alcohol or substance abuse issues.

    "Clearly, it was recognized that Dina Lohan has been a life-long resident of Nassau County, a good and loving Parent to four children and the arrest was borne out of an isolated act of indiscretion on the occasion of her 50th Birthday. "
