Well, sorta. After completing everything the judge ordered her to do, Lindsay Lohan is officially free from her formal probation, and now just has to go without breaking any laws for another 2 1/2 years, after which she can presumably break any law she wants to if I understand the poor wording of that decree. Via TMZ:
As for the necklace heist case, Judge Sautner said Lindsay completed community service at the morgue, therapy and the shoplifter’s course — so her formal probation is now informal probation, and all Lindsay has to do is OBEY ALL LAWS for the next 2 1/2 years. Sautner said, “I know it’s kinda hard when people are following you all over the place … but that’s the life you chose.”
Judge Sautner gave Lindsay some good advice, “Stop nightclubbing and focus on your work.” In the end, Lindsay and her lawyer, Shawn Holley, thanked the Judge. Lindsay said to the judge, “What you’ve done has really opened a lot of doors for me.” Then Lindsay and Shawn hugged. Happy endings.
The thing is that Lindsay could go out and hang with her friends and drink all she wants, as long as she’s actually responsible about it. Personally, I’m of the mind that you can do whatever you want as long as what you do doesn’t infringe on other people. Yes, Lindsay can go out whenever she wants, as long as she works hard to balance it out, and drinks responsibly, and doesn’t act like an entitled moron. If she can pull all that off, then she can do whatever she wants. It’s that easy.
