Judge orders Lohan to redo some community service hours
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan must give an encore performance of 125 hours of community service after a judge on Wednesday determined she improperly received service credit for appearing in a London stage play.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Young told the actress to redo the hours at a new agency. Young set a March 12 hearing to choose a new organization where Lohan can complete the hours before a May 28 deadline.
Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said Lohan had received credits for time she spent performing “Speed-the-Plow” at a London theater. He said Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, agreed that some of the hours would be redone at a new organization.
White raised concerns about Lohan’s service at a hearing last month and was given time to investigate the issue.
He met with Young and Holley in chambers Wednesday before the judge’s decision was announced. Lohan did not attend Wednesday’s hearing.
The community service is one of the last elements of Lohan’s sentence for a 2012 case involving reckless driving and lying to police that was filed after she crashed into a dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway.
Holley did not return an email message seeking comment.
