It's easy to like a court ruling that ends with you likely avoiding jail. Just ask Lindsay Lohan.

Hours after her necklace-jacking case was resolved today when her lawyer entered a no contest plea to misdemeanor theft on her behalf, the starlet has released a statement approving Judge Stephanie Sautner's decision to let Lohan's current 120-day jail sentence stand and not tack on any additional punishment.

"I am glad to be able to put this past me and move on with my life and my career. I support the judge's decision and hold myself accountable for being in this situation," Lohan says.

The good news for Linds? Since it will be up to the L.A. Sheriff's Department—not the court—when it comes to the specifics of her detention, she will most likely wind up serving about two weeks of house arrest due to jail overcrowding.

Whatever it ends up being, Lindsay's accepting her fate head on.

"I have already started my community service at the Downtown Women's Center and thank everyone there for their warm welcome," she adds.

"I hope to be able to fulfill my obligation without any press attention. I think the media spotlight should be on issues such as homelessness and domestic violence instead of on me."

Maybe she should have thought of that before getting in trouble. Just sayin'.
