Lindsay Lohan in court Tuesday

Actress Lindsay Lohan is expected in court Tuesday morning to report on her progress attending community service at the morgue and mandated therapy sessions.

At her last hearing in December, Lohan was all smiles as Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner praised her for fulfilling her scheduled responsibilities and promised to end her probation as early as February if she continued on the right path.

Sources said Lohan has served the required 12 days of community service at the Los Angeles County coroner's office since the Dec. 14 hearing, and no fireworks are expected Tuesday.

Last year, Lohan pleaded guilty to the theft of a necklace from a Venice jewelry store. But she violated probation by missing required workdays at the Downtown Women's Center and other appointments.

Sautner sentenced Lohan to 30 days in jail and ordered her to complete her community service at the morgue, where she is working as a janitor. She spent less than five hours in custody.

In the last couple of months, Lohan has appeared to be back on track.

"Miss Lohan, you have actually done your work," Sautner told her at the December hearing. "You are doing well and I would like to see it continue."
