Lindsay Lohan given glowing probation report

By Andrea Petrou on December 15th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan was given a glowing probation report during her court hearing yesterday.

The ‘Mean Girls’ actress – who has been working at the Los Angeles County Morgue as part of her sentence for breaking her probation in relation to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) case – was praised by Judge Stephanie Sautner for the way she has behaved and got on with her court-ordered work.

When discussing Lindsay’s community service hours, Sautner praised the 25-year-old star for having “done it not only on time, but early. You did the 12 days and you completed it early”.

She then told Lindsay, who returned to Los Angeles after holidaying in Hawaii: “You’re doing well. I’d like to see it continue.

“Do more days a month and then we can end this in February, possibly.”

Lindsay must complete another 12 days of duty at the morgue and three therapy sessions by her next court date on January 17 2012.

The judge also gave Lindsay permission to leave the state of California if she completes her 12 days of duty early.

She said: “Any month you’ve completed 12 days early, you can travel,” she said. “For pleasure, for any purpose…to go to a spa, whatever she wants to do. Whatever anyone else is allowed to do.”

Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer meets with her judge in a bid to keep her out of jail.

Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer has met with her judge in a bid to keep her out of jail.

The troubled star is due in court later today to say if she will take a plea bargain in her alleged felony theft of a $2,500 necklace from jeweller Kamofie & Company.

Her lawyer, Shawn Holly, met with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz – who is hearing the case – and Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers yesterday (09.03.11) in a bid to convince them to revise their plea deal of six months jail time.

A source told website “Holly is trying to use the fact the jewellery store owners sold the surveillance video of Lindsay to keep her client out of jail, or at least consider greatly reducing the six months that the District Attorney is seeking for probation violation.”

Earlier this week it emerged Kamofie & Company had sold the CCTV footage of Lindsay in the store on the day of the alleged theft for profit, which it has been claimed could work to her advantage.

A source said earlier this week: “The owners of the store’s credibility is on the line, and going to be scrutinised. The price of the necklace is going to be revisited again.

“For Lindsay to be charged with a felony, the necklace had to be priced at over $900.

“Holley has an excellent argument that the owners could have inflated the price of the necklace to the authorities.”

If Lindsay doesn’t take a plea deal, her case will proceed to trial, and she will face a much longer sentence if found guilty, as she will be classed as a repeat offender.

The 24-year-old star’s legal troubles all stem from a 2007 Driving Under the Influence arrest, and in January she completed a 90-day court ordered stay in rehab.
