Lindsay Lohan gets jail warning

Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has been warned by a judge she could face jail time if she fails to complete 125 hours of community service over a reckless driving offence within the next three weeks.

The US actress, currently living in London, has only completed about nine of the hours so far, and US judge Mark Young said on Thursdaythere will be “consequences” if she fails to finish the sentence by May 28.

Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Holley said the actress was having trouble completing her service in London due to travel and costs, and limits on the number of hours she can perform each day.

The judge agreed to allow Lohan to travel to New York to do the community service at the Brooklyn Community Center, working with children, but added that all the hours must be completed by the next hearing on May 28.

“If it is not done by May 28 there will be consequences,” Young said.

Prosecutor Melanie Skehar said the 28-year-old star could face around 18 months behind bars if she fails to complete her community service.

Lohan 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 counselling during two years of probation.

But in February she was given another 125 hours of community service, after a judge questioned whether she fulfilled the terms of the initial sentence.

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 encounters with the law.
