(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES - Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner praised Lindsay Lohan for her behavior under probation at a progress report hearing Wednesday morning.

Sautner told the actress she is doing well under strict new terms of her probation and urged her to keep up the good work.

CBS Los Angeles report Lohan was given 30 days in jail last month for violating the terms of her previous probation, stemming from DUI and theft cases.

In total, she served less than five hours in jail, but she must complete 53 days of community service at the county morgue and 18 45-minute psychotherapy sessions by March of 2012.

Thus far, Lohan has completed 12 days of work at the morgue and attended five therapy sessions.

If Lohan violates the terms of her new probation, a warrant for her arrest will be issued and she will be forced to serve 270 days in jail.

"You're doing well and I'd like to see it continue," Sautner said.
