JUDGE ORDER LINDSAY LOHAN TO DO MORE COMMUNITY SERVICE
A judge in L.A. has ordered Lindsay Lohan to complete more community service. According to TMZ, it was determined that over half of the hours she completed as part of her probation were unacceptable to the court.
Lindsay must now complete an additional 125 hours as part of her punishment from her 2012 reckless driving case. The prosecutor in the case urged the judge to re-examine the hours approved by CSV in London after it was discovered that she was credited for six hours of service during hours when she was on stage acting in Speed-the-Plow and meeting fans.
The decision was made privately in the judge’s chambers.
Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, discussed the prosecutor’s complaint with TMZ saying, “He didn’t like some of the work shadowing. And I think that was primarily it. I mean, my feeling was really that the prosecutor should cal l and speak with the community service director cause I think a lot of his concerns would have been answered if he had done that. But it made sense for us to just move forward and so that’s why we reached a compromised position so that we can move forward. And by the way, it’s not a problem because she’s been enjoying doing community service and will continue to.”
She also defended Lindsay’s work saying, “Our feeling is that what she did was community service. Now granted, she was performing in the play but she made arrangements for a number of people to come to the play. She met with them before the play. She introduced them to a number of people who worked at the theater. So from our standpoint it really was facilitating a wonderful thing to provide an opportunity to people who wouldn’t otherwise get to meet those kind of people in those kinds of positions and see a play like that. So it wasn’t just her appearing in the play and having people show up and then she just leaves and she gets credit for that. I mean, it was more than that.”
Lindsay has been spending most of this week attending events for London Fashion Week.
