Lindsay Lohan Receives Probation Praise From Judge

Lindsay Lohan is making progress in her court-ordered community service and therapy, and today Judge Stephanie Sautner acknowledged her work.

Lohan was in court today as part of her new routine, which requires monthly court appearances. Judge Sautner told Lohan, “You’re doing well and I’d like to see it continue.”

The actress was given community service in lieu of jail after drunken-driving and misdemeanor grand theft charges were filed in 2007. Lohan initially failed to report for her community service and received a stern warning from Judge Sautner, who reminded her: “Probation is not a gift.”

The judge then revoked Lohan’s probation and sentenced her to 30 days in jail. Bail was set at $100,000, was promptly paid, and Lohan was ordered to report in court on Nov. 2.

At that hearing, she was assigned 53 days of community service at a Los Angeles county morgue and 18 therapy sessions. Both must be completed by March or Lohan will report to jail for 270 days.

To date, Lohan has completed 12 days of service and has had five therapy sessions, more than was required per the judge’s orders. Sautner encouraged Lohan and told her, “Do more days a month and we can end this in February, possibly.”

This is the first time that Lohan has received a positive progress report from the court system, which has people wondering if this is the beginning of a turnaround. Lohan has had a troubled history with drugs, alcohol, and being in and out of the judicial system.

Lohan got her start in show business at a young age. She was on soap opera “Another World” for one year before filming her breakout role in Disney’s “The Parent Trap.” Since then Lohan has been in such hits as “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday.”
