It’s official. She’s now free. On Thursday, an L.A. County Superior Court judge brought Lindsay Lohan’s supervised probation to an end, while praising her for successfully completing her community service. This ends her ordeal of five years of criminal court appearances that saw her jailed several times. A supportive judge, Stephanie Sautner announced “she did it! … She has completed it short of a year and she has done everything this court asked her to do.” However, the judge gave Lindsay a parting advice: “Stop nightclubbing and focus on your work.”

The judge had told Lohan last month that the court would end her probation for her DUI conviction and would place her on informal probation for theft of a necklace from a Venice jewelry store if she finished the remaining sessions of her community service and therapy.

With Lohan obeying the terms of the court, the judge ended her probation for the DUI case and placed her under unsupervised probation up to May 2014 for the shoplifting case.


Lohan, wearing a turquoise suit, told the court with smiles, “I just wanted to thank you for being fair. What you’ve done has really opened a lot of doors for me.”

The judge told her “The only terms for you are for you to obey all laws … You don’t need to come to court anymore.”

Her probation status along with her troubles at court that saw her jailed repeatedly for violations including drugs and alcohol abuse had dimmed Lohan’s chances to get work, though of recent, favorable observations of the court had started to help her regain ground.

Her career had gone to nadir with her conviction in the necklace theft case and the Court sentenced Lohan to jail and saw her placed under house arrest for probation violations. The judge, Sautner also imposed upon her a routine of monthly community service and therapy.

Lohan was required to complete her therapy sessions and do 480 hours of community service at the Los Angeles County morgue. She completed both this week.

Lohan expressed her gratitude by publicly crediting both the judge and her attorney, Shawn Holley, for helping her salvage her life and career.
