Lindsay Lohan Admits to Skimping on Community Service: Reports
A judge ordered that the actress has until May 28 to complete her remaining hours, according to TMZ
The actress’s lawyers were back in court on Thursday in Los Angeles, where they told a judge their client has only recorded roughly 10 of the remaining 125 hours of community service hours she was ordered to complete in February, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.
Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, reportedly explained to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark A. Young that the actress was unable to complete the hours in London due to the 90-minute distance between her home and service organization, TMZ reports. With Lohan currently out of work, the cost and time of travel limited her ability to complete the hours, Holley reportedly said.
Young reportedly agreed to allow Lohan, 28, to travel to Brooklyn to complete her hours at the Brooklyn Community Center, but warned, “If it is not done by May 28 there will be consequences.”

The Mean Girls star could face around a year and a half in jail if she fails to complete the hours, Santa Monica Deputy City Attorney Melanie Skehar said, according to MyNewsLA.
At her last court hearing in February, Santa Monica prosecutors successfully disputed Lohan’s attorneys’ claim that the actress had finished the 240 hours of service she was originally ordered to complete stemming from her 2012 car crash in Santa Monica.
Young agreed with prosecutors that the actress should not get credit for activities like meet-and-greets with fans and a “work shadowing experience,” which prosecutors summed up as people “basically hanging out with her.”
On Feb. 25, Young ordered Lohan to complete an additional 125 hours of service and extended her probation to May 28.
