Lindsay Lohan

Probation Dept. Sides with Her!

10/18/2011 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan will get some critical support when she goes to court tomorrow ... Probation Department sources tell TMZ the Dept. thinks Lindsay has done most of what she's required to do, and they will NOT recommend that she be thrown in jail.

Our sources say ... the Probation Dept. officials will tell the judge in a written report that Lindsay is in "substantial compliance" with the terms of her probation.  They concede she was kicked out of the Downtown Women's Center for habitually failing to show up, but they note that Lindsay has a year to complete 360 hours of community service, and she's still on track.

And, sources say, the Probation Dept. has been in touch with Lindsay's shrink, who says she has gone "regularly."  The shrink did not address Judge Stephanie Sautner's directive that Lindsay go for therapy once a week -- because she hasn't.  But, we're told, the shrink is still satisfied.

We're told the report will note that Lindsay has completed her shoplifting course.

Judge Sautner made it clear ... if Lindsay violated any court order, she would go to jail.  So now it's up to Herhonner to decide if Lindsay went astray or whether a few missteps don't count.

The hearing is set for Wednesday at 10 AM.

We'll be livestreaming everything.

That's amazing if she's on track to complete the CS hours. She's never in Los Angeles and never showed up at the DWC. And when she did, she would do one hour stints. Allegedly from the last TMZ story. I don't know, if any minor violations happened, Sautner should stick to her guns, but she won't. How does a year and a half story Friday with leaks go to nothing, so who knows what to believe? Why even have her appear?

This is 110% BS!!!! This crazy skank should be in jail for 10 years for the things she has done! At the VERY least her drivers license should be suspended for 5 years!!!!

The judge said to follow ALL court orders, not most of them. If the Judge does not throw her ass in jail then I will lose all respect for her. The probation office will not reccomend jail time but the judge has the final word and I hope it's "18 months in prison"

She's not going to jail. Harvey likes to wind people up about her being thrown in the slammer but it never happens. If the probation dept. is behind her then she's NOT in trouble.

Please, stop reporting on her until she goes to jail.

So let's see if the judge is another Lindsay enabler OR whether this judge cares about the sanctity of the LAW.

If this judge doesn't care about her OWN RULINGS, why should Lindsay OR any other person who comes before her bench?

It sounds like the Probation dept. doesn't give a damn about the LAW.

How the F**K can she be in "substantial compliance" if: "They concede she was kicked out of the Downtown Women's Center for habitually failing to show up"?
Sounds to me like someone in the probation department got paid off (or Lindsay is getting better at giving ********s).

TMZ... You have done this three times now... Lindsay has a hearing coming up.. nothing more than a progress report.. you trash her on your site.. tell everyone she is violating her parole.. and then she gets to court and we find out everything is BS! And then you come back to the site and try to trash her some more telling everyone how harsh the judge is and how she hates Linsday.. I've watched the last two hearings.. and the only person the Judge doesn't like is TMZ! She has told you three time sot back off Lindsay. She told you follow someone else.. But TMZ is addicted to Lindsay Lohan and has taken it as a mission to destroy her! Tehy post these stories to maker her look bad. You incite your viewers against Lindsay Lohan. You are no better than Nancy Grace. Just last week you were trying to convince your viewers that it was ok for Conrad Murray to serve house arrest because a new State law says non violent offenders can't serve time in our prisons.. But you want Lohan to serve time in jail at tax payers expense for a possible probation violation ( that is probably BS again like last time)?

Hey, Judgie baby, we know you ordered Lindsay to do her cs at the women's center for a reason, but Linds and the probie dept think getting the boot is just a little misstep, no biggie, right?

I say it's more likely that the tabloids including TMZ did not follow the Judges orders and continued to violate the sanctity of the womens center and Lohan had to switch sites. They warned the judge at the last hearing that they would drop her if the paps didn't back off.

Yeah and remember when Probation had a scathingh report against her, listing all the pills she takes, saying she is a huge druggie and highly recommended she be in jail? Judge didn't care. But I bet this will sway her, why? cuz it's Lindsay.

This is exactly what I expected. She has to complete this and doing janitor duty at the morgue by end of April 2012 and I will venture to bet that she will not have it completed. We'll have to wait til next year to finally see this loser thrown in prison. Not jail. Prison. The way she's going though, I will be surprised if she's not in a body bag before that because that will be the only way she'll show up at the morgue.

Why the hell are people blaming TMZ? TMZ didn't/isn't doing anything, SHE is and YOU are reading it! So,shut up already! Also, we all know she's not going to jail. Her and the judge must have the same dealer...
