Lindsay Lohan Probation / PLAYBOY: IN SESSION's Vinnie Politan & Matt Semino Discuss (12-14-11)

A judge finally ended Lindsay Lohan's long probation on Thursday and granted the troubled actress her freedom.

Lindsay Lohan may finally take a sigh of relief, as the actress has been released from her supervised probation. According to reports, a judge ended her supervised probation on Thursday and Lohan looked extremely relieved and happy after hearing the great news. Lindsay Lohan had been under the pressure of constant court hearings and threats of jail, so it was indeed a matter of great relief for her.

When the decision was relayed to her, Lohan thanked Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner for her patience and looked markedly relieved as she left the courtroom after the brief hearing.

Since being taken into custody for driving under the influence on more than one occasion, a series of strict probation requirements, including cleanup duty at the morgue and counselling sessions, had been imposed on Lohan. Initially, she had problems complying with all these strict punishments, but eventually she met all the requirements by Thursday's deadline.

The judge, Stephanie Sautner, told Lohan that she was not going to give a lecture, but she did make it a point to remind her that she would remain on informal probation till 2014 for taking a necklace without permission - an incident which took place last year.

"You need to live your life in a more mature way, stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work," Sautner said.

"I just want to say thank you for being fair. It's really opened a lot of doors for me," Lohan replied.

Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to complete alcohol education classes in 2010, but when she failed to comply, a judge sentenced her to jail for the first time ever. She was then ordered to go to a rehab for her drunken driving arrests but before the year's end, she had relapsed. She was sent by another judge to the Betty Ford Center, where she got involved in a fight with a worker.

After almost three weeks of her release in January 2011, Lindsay Lohan was accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a store near her Venice home and she again got into trouble with law. Judge Sautner rejected rehab and sent her to jail, but she couldn't remain there due to overcrowding.

However, now it is being hoped that Lindsay Lohan has learnt her lesson. Her spokesman, Steve Honig, said, "Lindsay is ending one chapter and starting the next. She is very eager to get back on set and dive into her next few projects."
