Lindsay Lohan‘s probation has ended at last, but the judge in the case had a strong warning for the troubled starlet to clean up her act. After five trips to jail and numerous days in court, Lindsay Lohan can finally call herself a truly free woman. Let’s just hope she can use that freedom wisely and not end up back in the hands of law enforcement.
“She has done everything this court has asked of her,” Judge Stephanie Sautner said on Thursday in discharging Linday Lohan’s formal probation. Lohan has served more than 50 days of community service at the L. A. county morgue doing janitorial work, and attended 18 court-ordered therapy sessions.
After releasing Lindsay Lohan from probation, Judge Sautner had a strong warning for the actress to keep herself out of trouble. “You need to live your life in a more mature way,” Sautner said. “Stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work. I don’t expect to see you again.”
Lohan, who wore a conservative light blue suit with her hair back in a bun, told the judge she wanted to thank her being fair to her. “It’s opened a lot of doors for me, so I really appreciate it.” We hope she was serious in her positive attitude, because it was hard to pay attention to anything she said without wondering what the hell was wrong with her crazy duck lips.
Although Lindsay Lohan has been entirely released from formal probation and no longer has to report to a probation officer, do community service or go to therapy, she does still have one rule to follow. Lohan will still be on ‘informal’ probation until May 24, 2014. This means that if she breaks the law again during that time period, she could be sentenced to up to 245 days in jail.
“It’s not that hard [to stay out of trouble],” Sautner added. “I know it’s hard when you have people following you all over the place, but that’s the life you chose.”
Well said, Judge Sautner, well said.
