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.

I am not up on the law but it seems to me a process server could hand over papers to the judge. Seeing how she is in court, a judge could just hand the papers over to her in order to be served. Just wondering.

LINDSAY SIGNS JOINT MARKETING AGREEMENT!
Canada has just legalized brothels, eh? Lindsay has signed on as an intern (unpaid) and those crafty Canadians are using her as Door Prize of sorts! The local headlines: Lindsay Lohan to do missionary work for the first 400 people per day (men or women) at Big Bill’s Brothel! Into each life a little rain must fall, eh? This is the quid pro quo for Lindsay getting into Canada, the film work on these encounters will be EPIC. Talk about a BIG Comeback! A STAR IS BORN IN THE NORTH!
