Things might actually - dare we say it? - be turning around for Lindsay Lohan!
In light of the actress' much debated alleged assault against a staffer at the Betty Ford Center a month before her release, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox reviewed her criminal file regarding the incident, and has determined to take no immediate action against her!
However, if the Riverside District Attorney DOES decide to press charges, Fox may be forced to give the file a second look!
A source explains:
"Judge Fox read the report, and put it back in Lohan's file. Right now, based on what he has read, he won't be taking any action against Lindsay. Judge Fox is waiting to see what, if any, charges Lindsay will face in connection with the incident at Betty Ford. If she is charged, he will take immediate action. Lindsay is scheduled to appear in front of Judge Fox on February 25th for a progress report hearing. At the last hearing, Judge Fox told her if she cleaned up her act and completed rehab, she would be taken off supervised probation, which would mean no more random drug tests, among other things. Lindsay is almost there, the only thing that could change that is if Lindsay is charged by the DA in Riverside, or if she violates other terms of her probation before February 25th. Lindsay received a glowing discharge letter from Betty Ford, which Judge Fox also has in the file by now. Lindsay's counselors conveyed how impressed they were with the progress she made at Betty Ford, and her commitment to her sobriety."
Let's hope for her sake, and everyone else's, that nothing more comes from this silly incident!
Everyone connected to her has commented on how well she's doing, she LOOKS much healthier, and even the staffer doesn't want to press charges!
Let this silly case go! We're tired of hearing about LiLo drama!
Thoughts?? Is Lindsay really on the mend??
