LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Actress Lindsay Lohan was given 125 hours of community service Wednesday after a Los Angeles judge questioned whether she fulfilled the terms of a previous sentence for reckless driving.
The California judge told Lohan the court would not accept all her offered community service hours given prosecution allegations that she didn’t do them, making for another turn in the star’s public struggle with addiction and the law. Lohan, 28, was sentenced in 2013 to 240 hours of community service after she drove recklessly and lied to police following a car accident in Santa Monica, California.
The court also imposed 90 days of drug rehabilitation and 18 months psychiatric counseling during two years of probation. But city prosecutor Terry White said at a preliminary hearing that Lohan greeted volunteers at service programs but didn’t do the work herself.
Attorney for the actress Shawn Holley told reporters Lohan had complied with the judge’s sentence, but she did not oppose the latest decision. After rocketing to stardom for films “The Parent Trap”, “Freaky Friday” and “Mean Girls”, Lohan has been in and out of rehab with drug problems and had numerous run-ins with the law.
