Los Angeles judge annuls credits for 'work' the actress did in London last year (2014)
A Los Angeles court has ordered Lindsay Lohan to “redo” 125 hours of community service after deciding that activities the actress performed during her time London last year (2014) did not count.
The Mean Girls actress, 28, was ordered to perform 240 hours of community service in 2013 as a part of a plea deal brokered in the wake of allegations of reckless driving and lying to police.
While in London last year starring in a West End revival of David Mamet’s play Speed-the-Plow, the actress became involved with a charity group called Community Service Volunteers (CSV) and spent time working with teenagers in Hackney. “She has built strong relationships with the young volunteers she has worked with on the scheme,” a CSV representative told the court.
Lohan sought to claim these hours as community service, but prosecutors alleged that she wants to receive credit for hosting a fundraiser event for CSV bosses, allowing teenagers to shadow her and even holding meet-and-greet events.
Superior Court Judge Mark Young decided to annul any credits Lohan had received during her time in London, the BBC reports, and the actress will be assigned a new community service at a hearing on March 12. She will then have until May 28 to complete the outstanding 125 hours.
