4/22/2011 6:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan just caught a MASSIVE break -- her felony grand theft charge was just downgraded to a misdemeanor.

TMZ told you this would happen .... Judge Stephanie Sautner ruled the offense, along with Lindsay's record, did not support a felony charge.  The judge noted Lindsay's DUI conviction was 4 years ago.

The judge denied Shawn Holley's motion to dismiss the case outright.

Take comfort in the fact that she will only go downhill from here as far the BIG SCREEN goes. The vast majority of people no longer like her, the person, Lindsay Lohan.

Why do you think she was able to get the role on the Gotti film
they knew this was going to be the outcome all along. They were just going through the motions today. Letting the public think
there was finally going to be some true justice.

Well I just found out the answer to my previous question about what the judge ruled on Lilo's probation...In case, anyone is curious....
TMZ posted (in another article):

"Lindsay Lohan violated her probation by allegedly stealing a necklace, Judge Stephanie Sautner just ruled.

The judge ordered Lindsay to stand trial for theft, but reduced the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor.

Although Judge Sautner found Lindsay in violation of probation, she will not go to jail now. The penalty will be determined after the verdict in the trial."

Things must be a lot different in CA because the slogan and fact is where I live, for anyone on probation: "No NEW charges" or you're going to jail until the new charges are resolved. PERIOD!!!

Lindsay never going to learn because Judges are to damn soft on her spoiled rotten butt and eventually Lindsay past for breaking the law will catch up to her and just matter of time one these days Lindsay has face the music,

To Lindsay enablers who support her she wouldn't give you time of day if you're facing going to jail.

@ London Bloke:

I don't like to be cruel or engage in name-calling either (I think there's a difference between describing unacceptable behaviour and calling someone "a _____", but that's just me.

The apparent unfairness (to Lohan as well) really bugs me.

And sadly, I have come to learn that there are people who are not inherently decent... what brought me to my conclusions about Lohan is her actions in this alleged theft incident. I agree w/the judge that her intent was nefarious. I believe the earring was not a mistake, either. Her attitude and actions in this seem sneaky, manipulative and full of entitlement.

I don't like that sort of nonsense in anyone... : )

Ewww Lindsay looks like crap these days. But I knew she would "get off" by Stephanie Sautner. Pun intended there folks, if you catch my drift. I am happy this whole thing is OVER, so now i don;t have to read or hear about her anymore.

Hey Lindsay, good luck with that part in Savages, doll !!!

The Truth

and you went to talk to all of them and post and all that or you only post here about Lindsay. just asking.

now if you only post about Lindsay then you are saying one thing and doing the opposite. Lindsay is NOT like the others, why? because if you walk oput of a door (any door) I don't care but if Lindsay walks out of a door (any door) then I care, and you care too apparently.

relax and practice what you preach from now on, or you'll face my comments reminding you that you are an hypocrite.

fair enough?

yeah.
