Lindsay Lohan's burglar was sentenced to probation on Friday after pleading no contest to charges against her.

Twenty-two year old burglar, Diana Tamayo, was charged with stealing from Lohan's home as part of a group called the "Bling Ring."

Tamayo was sentenced to three years probation by Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler, who also ordered her to 60 days of road work.

The burglar was part of a team of six people charged with the thefts of more than $3 million of clothes, jewelry and other high-end household items. They stole extensively from some of the most famous celebrities in Hollywood, including Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, Orlando Bloom and Paris Hilton among others.

Most of the group was arrested in 2009 but Tamayo has only just now been sentenced, and two other suspects will appear in court early next month charged with thefts at Paris Hilton's residence.

Earlier this year in March, Nicholas Frank Prugo, who is suspected to be the ringleader of the group, also pleaded no contest to charges of burglarizing the homes of celebrity stars, including Lohan. The 21 year old will be sentenced to two years in prison next month in a deal agreed after he testified for prosecutors.

Although the group is thought to have stolen more than $3 million in items, most of the objects have not been recovered by authorities. However, Paris Hilton's Louis Vuitton bag full of jewelry was found and returned to her.

None of the famous celebrities testified in open court during the trials, but some, including Lohan, did offer their testimonies to a grand jury, which indicted the "Bling Ring" group members.
