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.

Is everyone of Harvey's employees over there on TMZ live on pot? That's the question I have for the show.

Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, that keeps cutting Lindsay slack, bailing her out, making excuses and other wise enabling her.. will be responsible for her impending death and/or destruction. JUST DO YOUR JOB PEOPLE... as a mother, a probation officer, a judge and/or a therapist. A jail sentence or a year in rehab may seem harsh, but the system is there to save people like Lindsay Lohan from themselves. Not to compare Lindsay to Robert Downey Jr... they're not even remotely in the same class as actors or as drug addicts, but he would be dead right now if it weren't for that prison sentence.

What a joke the system is. If she don't get jail time then that judge and department of probation need to be looked into.

Does it matter anymore...her looks, career, popularity in the industry gone. Let her do what she does. The only reason she is staying relevant in the news is she can't stay away from the camera's. She is an adult, people have to stop making excuses for her.

What a freaking waste of time and taxpayer money. Her problems aren't going to be solved in the criminal justice system.

"not only will the probation dept.not violate the "I know who killed me " star..But we will pay for her grill,buy her a star on the walk of Fame,run her around town in a rickshaw...pulled by sautner, and back pay her for house arrest"...
She has also been awarded the key to the city,what ever she wants she doesnt have to steal it anymore...doors are not allowed to lock her out...
And she is changing the New Year to July 2nd..

Of course she's not going to jail, she hasn't done anything wrong. Like the court order says she has a year to do her community service, to my knowledge it doesn't stipulate places, dates or specific duties. She appears to be keeping the peace, staying out of trouble and working. Putting her in jail right now would serve no purpose.

The Truth    

Judge Stephanie Sautner whole career will now come down to being Lindsay Lohan’s BI**H on Wed.

Judge Stephanie Sautner is already being publically and privately laughed at on every website site, the news and in the courthouse.

Lindsay gets what she wants Judge Stephanie Sautner as her own private BI**H.

Tough judge…lol…that is funny.

Why do you people want her to go to jail so badly? Are your lives that boring and pathetic? Even regular people don't get thrown in jail that easily for a few screw ups. I've known people that have f'ed up way more than Lindsay for more serious crimes and they never saw a minute of jail time. Please people, get some freaking lives.
