So remember how Lindsay Lohan‘s upcoming court case was supposed to be presided over by a judge who prefers buying her defendants a Starbucks gift card instead of sending them to jail? Well, at the last minute, Lindsay’s case will be heard by judge Stephanie Sautner, who you may remember was responsible for giving Lindsay her probation and basically told her that she never wanted to see her in court ever again. So yeah, Lindsay might be completely screwed. Via E! Online …
E! News exclusively confirms that the Liz & Dick star’s court case was just transferred to Judge Stephanie Sautner’s courtroom. If you’ll recall, Sautner is the judge who presided over Lohan’s jewelry theft case and supervised her subsequent probation. After Lohan entered a plea in the theft case, Sautner sentenced her to community service requirements, gave her one year to complete them all and had her come in periodically in person to show that she had been complying.
When Sautner and Lohan last saw each other at her probation status hearing in March 29, 2012, she ruled Lohan had successfully completed with all the terms of her supervised probation and converted her to summary probation. But at that final hearing, Sautner sternly told Lohan, “The only thing you have to do is follow all laws … Live your life in a more mature way, stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work, OK?”
“I don’t expect to see you again,” the judge added. “You know what you have to do.”
Granted, last time around, LiLo managed to barely scrape things together by the skin of her teeth, thanks in no small part to Shawn Holley. Except now, she’s being represented by Jon Gosselin‘s lawyer, and will have to deal with a judge who I’m sure has had enough of Lindsay’s crap. Honestly, part of me feels bad for Lindsay, but the other part of me is just baffled how someone can get that many chances to turn it around and make something of herself, only to completely blow every one of them.
