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.

Honestly...I still can't understand why she gets any work as it is...she has no talent....she's a bore.

@ Im a crazy person...no your not your right on the money here. This state is such a joke in every way and the funny part is they think we all think these people are so awesome in the rest of the country we look at them and watch as they fall one by one

Uhm....then that means she has still violated probation, right ? Then why doesn't she go straight to jail like everyone else does that gets a violation? And no one else gets to have their day in court first....you go straight to jail for a violation and then go to court?? Hmmm....another celebrity justice case here I do believe ! Gotta love Cali !

Ridiculous. It's disgusting, really really disgusting. I will never understand why everyone is so lenient with her. There are bigger stars who have done more time for less serious incidents. What a joke.

DUIs were 4 years ago. Probation violations were minor and not unusual, just not timed well enough to keep Lindsay out of jail and supervised probation. The updates look like Lindsay was irresponsible in returning the necklace to its rightful owner which is the store in a reasonably timely manner. It is not a felony at all and the judge exercised common sense and perspective in reducing the sentence to a misdemeanor.

So she violated her probation, she should be remanded! But no, there's a pre-trial date in May and then another date in June. Just stupid.

Mark was right, the judge is an bigoted, starstruck idiot, who would never let a black person have a light punishment like that.
