Lindsay Lohan ordered to do 125 more community service hours
Lindsay Lohan has to do 125 more hours of community service after decreeing that activities she performed while appearing in a West End play last year did not count a Los Angeles judge has ruled.
Superior Court Judge Mark Young annulled credits that Lindsay Lohan received for time she spent in London in 2014.
Lindsay Lohan, 28, was originally ordered to complete 240 hours of community service as part of a 2013 plea deal.
It stemmed from a 2012 case involving reckless driving and lying to police.
Lindsay Lohan, who made her West End debut last year in a production of David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow, was not present for hearing on February 25.
The actress worked with charity group Community Service Volunteers (CSV) during her time in London and reportedly lobbied insurance giant Esurance to donate $10,000 to the organization.
A statement from CSV said Lindsay Lohan had volunteered on the organization’s Positive Futures project, which works with teenagers in Hackney.
“She has built strong relationships with the young volunteers she has worked with on the scheme,” CSV said.
Yet US prosecutors questioned some of her UK activities – which reportedly included “meeting and greeting” fans in London – and challenged evidence submitted by her attorney to show the required hours had been completed.
A hearing has been scheduled for March 12, when a new community service agency will be selected.
Lindsay Lohan will have until May 28 to complete the additional community service.
