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.

Now Blo will have more time to follow up friendships with all those "incredible and humbling" women that she met while at the Morgue.
Maybe Matt will even do a follow-up interview about that heartwarming story.

People can and certainly do say whatever they wish about Lindsay and her "mistakes".
But, aside from any of that, she LOOKED SPECTACULAR today!!!
Keeping her make-up modest, having a more natural reddish hair color, and wearing "innocent" looking clothing really suits her well.
Lindsay looks like an angel from heaven today!!!

Really don't see Lindsay and Lohan Inc taking anybodies advice the judge's or some little old hillbilly granny on a web site...I've taught and work and even been related to people like them....mean people, people who have one goal in life and thats to get what they want, do what they want, and be what they want, no matter the cost, to anybody that gets in their way....they have no respect for law , to order , to others...and no feelings of guilt or sorrow... they are souless...... I've been taken in by their smiles, their lies of remorse and the promises to do better, and in a lot of cases I have stood at the side of their graves as they are lowered into the ground or stood in the courtroom were they are sentence to prison , two for life for killing someone...Yes two students who decided that the one shouldn't have to wait to inherit his Dad and Moms fortune so they broke in the house and beat and stabbed the father and mother to death with knifes and baseball bats..and are now both doing life in the prison without parole down East..
Don't worry she will be back in the news one way or another....thats a ganuantee.....

She's a great Judge and Woman, but I disagree w/Her Honor on this one Point:


"This is what you (Lindsey) chose."


Lindsey didn't choose show-biz - show-biz chose Lindsey.


Due to very good management - Lindsey had an opportunity.


Displayed brilliance and ingenuity as a kid - capitalizing.


It wasn't an ADULT choice Lindsey made - it was a-God-thing and a-kid-thing.


Hope Lindsey finds her way into the Church - we need her.

Gut feeling is that Lindsay is getting drunk and high again already. Now that no one is watching her. Sad but she does what she wants when she wants.

The only reason Lohan complied was she was not allowed to leave the states until she did. Jail was a joke. Lohan knows how to play the game she's had years of practice. Splitting every hair, right down to the wire. Yet, legally she complied. Want to bet her passport that was never stolen in France or Hawaii won't be a tmz speed dial.


Notice how Lohan milked this to the very end because it was the only attention she was getting. None of it good. I mean c'mon, 5 years, 4 judges, multiple violations, 7 mugshots later and Lohan is patting herself on the back like this is a big accomplishment she fininshed this part of her probation. Yeah, that's something to be real proud of. Lohan is a friggin moron.


Lohan is not one bit sober by any stretch, still drinking and drugging and I still think she's going to end up hurting somebody. Lohan doesn't care she will get away with it as always her attitude. Yes, she has so far. That makes her reckless and very dangerous. She can't drive sober let alone when she's wasted. Just because you can afford a Porche doesn't mean you know how to drive or handle it.


Yes Lindsay, Canada is a country. No, Toronto is not LA. north. If Lohan thinks she can pull her crap and get away with it in Toronto like she did in LA. Not even close. Make no mistake Lohan they will make room for you.


Of course providing Lohan doesn't screw up between now and then. Or not get caught. Wonder how un-professional Lohan will be on this TV movie set?

Look at her body language, the only time she DID NOT nod and slightly smile in agreement is when the judge said that she should stop the night clubbing. Not a good sign.
