"Miss Lohan, you have actually done your work,” Judge Stephanie Sautner told a beaming Lohan.

In the last month, the actress served her required 12 days of community service at the Los Angeles County coroner's office and one more than her four mandated therapy sessions -- requirements that the judge imposed on Lohan for violating her probation on a jewelry theft conviction and a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence.

Minutes after the actress left the Airport Courthouse, Lohan's attorney, Shawn Holley, appeared with a black package wrapped in a white bow, a gift from one of her most high-profile clients.

“I hope it’s not a signed copy of the Playboy,” Sautner quipped, referring to Lohan’s recent nude spread in the magazine.
