In news that would have been unthinkable a year or two ago, a judge ended Lindsay Lohan's probation stemming from her infamous necklace theft case.
He said that the oft-troubled celebrity is doing well and plans to complete community service and counseling requirements in another criminal matter.
Who is this girl and what did she do with Lindsay Lohan?
James R. Dabney said LiLo had received favorable reports from her counselor and an agency in London that works with neglected children and disabled people.
Lohan is performing community service there while starring in the play Speed-the-Plow, and she has "picked up the pace" recently while doing her labor.
The actress has completed 102 hours of her 240-hour community service sentence so far. Not a small amount of time. Lohan's attorney, Shawn Holley, said:
"The judge was pleased, the prosecutors were pleased and of course I'm pleased that Lindsay's doing well on probation, with her career, and generally with her life."
The Mean Girls cast member had been on probation for a 2011 case, in which she was accused of taking a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, Calif., store.
Lohan has been on probation since 2007, for one case or another, an astonishing run dating back to her teens. That year, she was arrested twice for DUI.
Even now, she remains on reckless driving and lying to police, stemming from a car crash she was in en route to the set of Lifetime's Liz & Dick in 2012.
Since she moved to London, though, she's been more or less out of the limelight and out of trouble. At least by her standards. Take what you can get.
The last we heard from LiLo over there, she was ...
- Possibly sort of dating Mohammed Al-Turki
- Faking illnesses and calling in sick to work
- Loving Brazilian politics and possibly coke
- Posing topless and shirtless a lot
