LOS ANGELES (AP) — A 22-year-old woman has pleaded no contest to a burglary charge for stealing items from the home of Lindsay Lohan as part of a group known as the "Bling Ring."

Diana Tamayo was sentenced Friday to three years of probation by Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler. She could have faced six years in prison if convicted at a trial.

Tamayo was one of six people charged in thefts in which more than $3 million in clothes, jewelry and art was taken from the homes of stars such as Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Megan Fox.

Two other members of the group — Courtney Leigh Ames and Roy Lopez Jr. — are scheduled to return to court Nov. 8.
