For the first time, in what seems like decades, Lindsay Lohan is about to be completely out of legal trouble. Yesterday, Lindsay successfully completed the work portion of her probation sentence and this morning, she will go before the ruling judge in her case and will — at long last — successfully complete all of the terms of her probation. As you may recall, Lindsay got busted for DUI back in 2007 and after a series of constant legal troubles has been in and out of court and in and out of jail. Today, Lindsay will finally be finished with all of that. And according to Lohan herself, she vows that she will never see the inside of a courtroom again.
Lindsay Lohan vows … she will NEVER again step foot in front of another judge. Lindsay was on break at the L.A. County morgue Wednesday — where she officially completed her community service obligation — when she vowed to stay clear of all courtrooms for the rest of her life. As for her big post-probation celebration tonight — Lindsay said she plans to grab dinner with her sister, and that’s about it. Lindsay also says she doesn’t plan to see her intrepid lawyer Shawn Holley very often after today’s hearing — but adds, Shawn “is still a good person in my life. She’s been there for me.”
Man … I honestly never thought this day would come. A few times over the years, Lindsay had been close to completing her probation and then she’d go and get in trouble again (case in point, the charge brought against her for jewelry theft). The girl has been a veritable trouble magnet for longer than I care to remember. She claims to have learned her lesson and for her sake, I hope she is serious. Her legal troubles almost hindered her chance to work in Canada on that Elizabeth Taylor biopic but because of her successful completion of her probation requirements, she’s gotten the green light to enter Canada to work on the film. Today can be a new day for Lindsay Lohan … IF she is serious about turning her life around. She’s made promises before so I’m not entirely convinced … but the power is hers. The power has solely been hers. If she wants to stay out of trouble she can. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
