Lindsay Lohan

Judge Ends Formal Probation

'Stop Clubbing, Focus on Work'

3/29/2012 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0329-lindsay-lohan-tmz-1bnLindsay Lohan is a semi-free woman, after Judge Stephanie Sautner just declared, "She did it!" -- she successfully completed her probation requirements.

The judge took Lindsay off probation altogether in what her honor called "the endless" 2007 DUI case. If Lindsay had not completed the terms of her probation, Judge Sautner could have sentenced her to 270 days in the pokey. When the judge terminated probation, Lindsay cracked a big smile and breathed a huge sigh of relief.

As for the necklace heist case, Judge Sautner said Lindsay completed community service at the morgue, therapy and the shoplifter's course -- so her formal probation is now informal probation, and all Lindsay has to do is OBEY ALL LAWS for the next 2 1/2 years. Sautner said, "I know it's kinda hard when people are following you all over the place ... but that's the life you chose."

Judge Sautner gave Lindsay some good advice, "Stop nightclubbing and focus on your work."

In the end, Lindsay and her lawyer, Shawn Holley, thanked the Judge. Lindsay said to the judge, "What you've done has really opened a lot of doors for me." 

Then Lindsay and Shawn hugged. Happy endings.

The court has released Lindsay's probation report ... and as we told you, it reflects pretty positively on Lindsay ... though it does make mention of her alleged hit-and-run incident earlier this month.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

If probation ends in May of 2014, why do people keep saying 2 1/2 years? Is the May date incorrect?

the only reason she has successfully completed all that was asked of her was because the Judge made her adhere to a strict timetable. Left to her own devices, this would be a different outcome. Hope she learned something and stays out of trouble. Staying out of bars would be a good start.

I expect it to be short and sweet just like the last few. Good thing for a few TMZers that she has the hit and run thing, now that her concrete carpet walks will probably be a thing of the past.
