Judge to Lindsay:

'You're in the Home Stretch!'

Lindsay Lohan
just got yet another rave review from Judge Stephanie Sautner during her probation progress report hearing this AM -- as Sautner proudly announced, "You're in the home stretch!"

Sautner was impressed -- that for the 3rd time in a row, Lindsay completed her required community service and therapy sessions.

Sautner gushed, "You seem to be getting your life back on track."

Lindsay has ONE MORE progress hearing set for March 29th -- by which date she must complete her final 14 days of community service at the L.A. County morgue, and 5 more therapy sessions.

If she stays on track, Lindsay will be placed on informal probation, meaning all she has to do is obey all laws.

Then again, that's been a tall order in the past.

update_bar
TMZ obtained a copy of Lindsay's latest probation progress report ...and according to the document she still owes $3500 in community service fees related to the jewelry theft case. The original debt was $3900.

As for how Lindsay's been able to turn her life around -- her lawyer Shawn Holley shared an interesting theory with us on her way out of court today (below) ... and she might just be on to something ...

She will never be known or remembered for anything except her selfishness, drug use, drinking and the AMAZING deals she was given by judges

Jesus, she looks terrible. Like a 50 year-old. Sad what drugs, drinking and smoking does to someone. And she is only in her late 20's.

Those ratty extensions may be gross but she's almost bald underneath. That is why she won't go back to red, she is trying to hide hair loss by dying what's left the same color as her skin. I wonder if she shaved that crap off, took some vitamins, ate something other than Burger King and Red Bull and did some liver cleanses or something she'd get her nice thick auburn back?

She is truly like a small out of control child how much be praised and congratulated everything she does something correct. What is going to happen when this judge is no longer there to hold her hand and guide her trough everyday living? She needs someone to tell her how to live from the time she gets up until she goes to bed. Once she is free she will be totally lost. I truly believe that some people just don't know the correct things to do in life. My Mom would have called her a screw up, but I am sure there is some fancy medical term that goes hand in hand with some fancy medication.

I would imagine given what seems to be Harvey's disdain for Lindsay Lohan. It must bother him that Lindsay was given a glowing review by the Judge Sautner and that Linday's star is on the serious rise!

Just who in the hell are they trying to fool....the woman is a walking drugged out accident waiting to happen..

I want her to get to informal probation. Because NOBODY will be holding this child's hand. And we all know she'll screw up. Look for busted for possession or something along those lines.

Look at Nicole saying Lindsay has NEVER done anything wrong. I guess DUI's, stealing, running around town with coke in your pants, getting high and failing drug test, chasing two innocent women off the road (charged with reckless driving), sneaking out of court mandated rehab ect ect isnt wrong in Nicole world.

Nicole says Lindsay hasnt done anything that we all dont do. Lets see I dont use coke, I NEVER drive after drinking and I dont steal. There goes your theroy Nicole, thats just stuff you and Lindsay do.

Obey all laws? Good luck with that. Kind of hard for a klepto to do. How many years has this one been going on?

No one ever proved that Lindsay did any of the things she was railroaded with. She's a much of a victim as Casey Anthony was.
