Lindsay Lohan has been getting rave reviews for her starring role as "the defendant" at the Airport Branch courthouse.

LiLo landed herself the role of a lifetime after driving under the influence, pilfering a necklace and then violating the terms of her probation. But lately it seems that hell is freezing over and Lohan is back on the road to redemption in the eyes of the law, if not in the eyes of casting directors (but you never know!).

"Miss Lohan, you're in the home stretch," Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner said this morning, according to City News Service. "The probation officer is pleased with your progress. You seem to be getting your life back on track and that's what we all hoped for. It was never our goal to just put people in jail, we like to see... change, and I think we've all seen that."

For her probation, Lohan has been seeing a shrink and completing her community service at the L.A. county morgue, where she cleans toilets and washes the bodily fluids off sheets. Lohan has one more court hearing scheduled on March 29. In order to finish her formal probation, Lohan has to complete five more therapy sessions and 14 days of community service by then—and then she'll no longer have to check in with a probation officer.

Lohan, who once said that she aimed to be a triple threat like her inspiration Ann-Margret, now just has to transform herself into a consistent law-abiding citizen in her next role as the actress formerly on probation.

"That means, after March 29, all you have to do is obey all laws, stay out of trouble, move on with your life," Sautner told Lohan.
