(AP) Xena: Warrior Princess actor Lucy Lawless says she's won a great victory after a New Zealand judge handed her a modest sentence but declined to order costs sought by oil company Shell for her role in a protest aboard an oil-drilling ship.


Lawless and seven other Greenpeace activists were each ordered Thursday to pay 651 New Zealand dollars ($547) costs to a port company and complete 120 hours of community service after earlier pleading guilty to trespass charges.


Last February, Lawless and six other activists climbed a drilling tower on the Arctic-bound vessel Noble Discoverer to protest oil exploration in the Arctic.


Shell Todd Oil Services, which had chartered the ship, had sought about 650,000 New Zealand dollars ($545,000) in reparation costs from the protesters.
