Lindsay Lohan was given a glowing probation report during her court hearing today (14.12.11).

The 'Mean Girls' actress - who has been working at the Los Angeles County Morgue as part of her sentence for breaking her probation in relation to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) case - was praised by Judge Stephanie Sautner for the way she has behaved and got on with her court-ordered work.

When discussing Lindsay's community service hours, Sautner praised the 25-year-old star for having "done it not only on time, but early. You did the 12 days and you completed it early".

She then told Lindsay, who returned to Los Angeles after holidaying in Hawaii: "You're doing well. I'd like to see it continue.

"Do more days a month and then we can end this in February, possibly."

Lindsay must complete another 12 days of duty at the morgue and three therapy sessions by her next court date on January 17 2012.

The judge also gave Lindsay permission to leave the state of California if she completes her 12 days of duty early.

She said: "Any month you've completed 12 days early, you can travel," she said. "For pleasure, for any go to a spa, whatever she wants to do. Whatever anyone else is allowed to do."
