Judge Stephanie Sautner made it clear on July 22, that she is unimpressed with Lindsay Lohan and her progress, or lack thereof, in completing her probation.
The actress was reamed out at a progress hearing and told that she had better complete her community service within a year of sentencing – or else “I’m not going to give five extra minutes,” she said, adding, “I don’t want to hear, ‘Oh, I couldn’t do it because I was on the set of a John Gotti movie.'”
The judge was frustrated that in two months since she somehow avoided jail for stealing a necklace, Lindsay has completed just four days out of 60.
Also upset that Lindsay had not enrolled in psychological counseling – as she’s required to do – Sautner is giving her 21 days to sign up.
The L.A. County Probation Dept. asked Judge Sautner to violate Lindsay’s probation and remand her into custody for three alleged violations.
It’s worth noting that two claims were bogus and the third – LiLo not returning a call from her probation officer – was resolved (she called back).
Judge Sautner made it very clear that she will revoke LiLo’s probation if she doesn’t comply.
Sautner also called the officer’s claims totally inaccurate and strongly implied the probation officer was unfairly gunning for Lindsay Lohan.
The probation officer’s alleged beef with Lohan was threefold:
1. Lindsay did not pay $3,900 in fees for community service. This was not a violation, however, she has three years to pay these.
2. Lindsay did not return the call of the probation officer. Again, the probation officer was wrong. Lohan actually left three messages.
3. Lindsay did not prove to the department that she enrolled in her community service program, shoplifting program, and psychological counseling. Again, irrelevant. Lohan had to report these to the judge alone.
People connected with LiLo think the probation officer has an axe to grind. It looks like the judge agrees, as she wasn’t moved by the claims.
Still, Sautner has her own gripes with the way Lohan has conducted herself, and the possibility of jail still looms if she keeps screwing up.
