For the first time in a long time, Lindsay Lohan doesn’t have a court date looming.
At a court hearing today, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner took Lohan off probation from her 2007 DUI case. She changed the status of Lohan’s probation from her 2011 shoplifting case from formal to informal, meaning that Lohan will no longer have to meet with a probation officer or appear in court, as long as she obeys all laws through May 2014.
Dressed in a blue pantsuit with her hair pulled back in a low bun, Lohan looked more demure than she has for past appearances. (Remember the white mini dress?) Sautner praised Lohan for doing “everything that this court has asked of her,” including completing 60 days of community service and multiple psychological counseling sessions. She also offered some advice: “Stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work.”
Lohan smiled through the hearing and thanked the court at the end, saying the experience has “really opened a lot of doors for me and I really appreciate it.” Before leaving the courtroom, she hugged her lawyer, said, “Oh my god,” and breathed a sigh of relief.
