LOS ANGELES (AP) – A judge recently ended the long-running probation of Lindsay Lohan in a 2007 drunken driving case after a string of violations, jail sentences and rehab stints.
The 25-year-old actress will remain on informal probation for taking a necklace without permission last year, but will no longer have a probation officer or face travel restrictions and weekly shifts cleaning up at the morgue.
Lohan let out a sigh of relief as she left Judge Stephanie Sautner’s courtroom, possibly for the last time. She said, “I just want to say thank you for being fair…. It really opened a lot of doors for me.“
Sautner said she wasn’t going to lecture the actress, but gave her some parting advice. She said, “You need to live your life in a more mature way, stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work.
