Lindsay Lohan

How She Turned it Around

12/14/2011 8:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1214_lilo_chapman_EX_01
Lindsay Lohan will experience something new in court this AM ... a friendly judge who heaps praise on her, and it's all because her lawyer figured out something that was lacking in her life.

Lindsay will appear before Judge Stephanie Sautner at 10 AM PT for a progress report.  She's on probation for pilfering a necklace at an L.A. jewelry store.

Judge Sautner tried something new ... rather than just telling Lindsay to complete her community service in a year -- or else -- the judge created a very specific schedule, putting in a certain number of hours each month.  And Lindsay has not only complied, she's gone beyond the minimum.  Sources tell us ... Lindsay logged the requisite number of hours of community service and morgue duty, and she's actually put in more therapy time than required.

And sources tell us ... her supervisor at the morgue is blown away, calling her work "stellar," and saying she's "a delight to work with and hard working."

The reason for Lindsay's turnaround -- her lawyer, Shawn Holley, who went to the judge before Lindsay's sentencing and argued that her client needed a rigid structure -- something her own parents never provided. 

Score one for the lawyer.

Im sorry but are we suppose to be impressed? The dumb twit almost didnt even make it to court due partying. Lindsay did not deserve this 10th chance. She should have just been jailed. The fact that it is taking the judge to hold her hand through her community service inorder for this 25 year old to show up to do a few days of CS a month. A 25 year old who doesnt even have a job may I mind you.

Heap praise on her!? C'mon...Oh, good Lindsay for getting back to the state on time, to show that you finally did what is legally required of you for being a criminal. Such a good girl. So ridiculous.

hey it only took her 4 years to do it and only because the judge assigned a militant type probation officer to kick her sorry flat granny azz into submission. Actually, now that I think about it, she did 'f' up by letting her go to Hawaii with out a babysitter to make sure she was on that plane to her obligation to the Ellen show to promote Playboy. This is proof that Hef has completely lost it by giving her a job. He will lose tons of money not only because it is disappointing but no one will buy it now.

Whoever wrote this smoked a pipe of delusion with Lindsay. She is a 25 year old woman that needs to be babysat. This is such a joke. She was in movies for years, she knows how to keep to a schedule. sheesh And missing her Ellen interview. Way to be responsible with your professional life.

What a world, she's getting praise for "turning it around" just because she's ACTUALLY doing what she is court mandated to do.

I agree she needed structure and I am happy that she will have a positive hearing but I am pissed about her missing Ellen. This was a good opportunity for her to get back out in the media for something other than court. I was excited to see her also but yet again another let down. Get it together Linds for your fans!

I still think the CS is BS..what probation office and place where your doing CS releases info.about your performance..."steller"..we will see but something is not sitting right....
Oh and by the way...she had a month and a half to do the min...CS not a month.

Geez. She is 25 years old and can't seem to do anything without someone holding her hand. Praising a grown woman for doing what she was ordered to do is kinda pathetic. Grow the he** up Lohan.
