Lindsay Lohan won another reprieve during her court appearance on Tuesday as a Los Angeles judge told her that she was pleased with the progress the actress had been making in her term of community service as well as her other probation requirements over drunk driving and theft.

If all goes well, Lohan could end almost five years of continuous monitoring by the courts by the end of March of 2012 provided she completes her total of 60 days of mandatory community service by then. The troubled actress has already attended 12 mandatory sessions of community service at a county morgue and also therapy sessions as required.

LA County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner remarked: "I'm pleased to say she's done it all. The probation officer has written a favourable report, as has the volunteer centre. Keep doing what you're doing, you appear to be doing it well."

Lohan is now required to complete 15 extra days of community services and another five sessions of therapy before February 22, 2012 when her next court appearance is due.
