Good news, everyone! Since Lindsay Lohan has managed to keep her nose clean for the past few months — and hopefully, she’ll be able to do so for the foreseeable future — it looks like her probation might finally be over in just two more days. I almost want to say “what’s the worst that can happen?” but if cartoons have taught me anything, it’s that Lindsay will ironically fuck up in a comical fashion if I say that. TMZ reports:
Sources tell us … The L.A. County District Attorney is satisfied Lindsay completed the terms of her probation. As a result, the D.A. will accept the L.A. County Probation Department’s report that Lindsay has complied with all the terms of her probation. We’ve learned the D.A. will have no objection to Judge Stephanie Sautner terminating Lindsay’s probation in the Beverly Hills DUI case. As for Lindsay’s other little problem — the jewelry heist — we’ve learned the L.A. City Attorney sees no reason why Lindsay’s formal probation — requiring her to regularly report to her probation officer and the judge — will be changed to informal probation, meaning as long as Lindsay keeps her nose clean she is off the hook for misdemeanor theft.
Look, as much flack as we’ve given Lindsay over the past couple years, we don’t make fun of her because we hate her: We make fun of her because she’s supposed to be better than all the trouble and bullshit she gets herself into. She’s supposed to be better than diva antics and dumb mistakes that somehow snowball into full-on criminal investigations. If she’s seriously serious about getting herself together this time, then we wish her the best. And, yes, maybe we’ll go easier on her. We’ll still make fun of her because that’s just what we do, but we’ll go easier on her.
