Lindsay Lohan receives favorable report as probation ends

Actress Lindsay Lohan was given a favorable report by a California judge as the probation stemming from a 2011 theft case was finalized on Thursday (06Nov14).

The Mean Girls star was accused of stealing a $2,500 piece of jewelry from a store in Venice in 2011, and she subsequently pleaded no contest to a charge of misdemeanor theft.


Lohan was put on extended probation as she had already received probation from prior drink-driving cases. The first sentence ended in 2012, and the latter ended on Thursday.


According to GossipCop.com, Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney stated he was pleased with the positive progress reports from Lohan's therapist and community service boss, noting she had "picked up the pace" after completing 102 hours of community service.


Lohan, who is currently in London's West End performing in Speed-the-Plow, is working with disabled adults and neglected children as part of her service, but still has to finished the full 240-hour commitment and continue counseling.


Lohan's lawyer appeared at the hearing on her behalf.
