Lindsay Lohan could face jail time if she fails to meet her community service obligation soon, a judge warns.
Lohan was ordered on Thursday to complete her 125 hours of community service following a 2012 Santa Monica traffic crash.
Lohan had been filming a television show in New York and was allowed her to complete her community service in Brooklyn. Now, she is apparently living in London, where prosecutors complained she isn’t doing proper service. Lohan moved to London last summer to star in a play, “Speed-the-Plow.”
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark Young told Lohan’s lawyer on Thursday that she must return to Brooklyn to complete her community service by May 28 or face “consequences.” He added that he was concerned that she only completed a small amount — less than 10 hours — of what had been required.
Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, said it’s technically impossible for Lohan to have finished the hours in London because it’s limited to four hours a day and the facility she was working with has moved and now is 90 minutes from her home.
Holley recommended the actress move back to Brooklyn to complete the work. She had been working with Brooklyn Community Services, which placed her at Fort Greene’s Duffield Children’s Center. The group also runs centers in New York’s Bedford-Stuyvesant and East New York neighborhoods.
Lohan was charged with three misdemeanors, including reckless driving and allegedly lying to Santa Monica police, for a June 2012 traffic accident that involved her Porsche.
