A Los Angeles judge has told Lindsay Lohan her performances in a West End play last year are not going to cut it as “community service”.
The troubled actress will need to complete 125 more hours of community service as part of her 2013 plea deal.
Superior Court Judge Mark Young annulled credits that Lohan received for time she spent in London in 2014.
The 28-year-old was originally ordered to complete 240 hours of community service, stemming from a 2012 case involving reckless driving and lying to police.
The Mean Girls actress worked with charity group Community Service Volunteers (CSV) during her time in London and lobbied US insurance giant Esurance to donate $10,000 to the organisation.
A statement from CSV stated that Lindsay had volunteered on the organisation’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 stated.
Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said after the ruling, “There were things she did that didn’t qualify as community service.”
White was furious last month when the community service order submission was sent over from the UK and criticized the court for letting the actress complete the hours overseas.
He said, “She got to shake hands with people, and that’s community service. I’d love to hang out with a celebrity all day and see their life, but that’s not community service.”
The actress was not present for Wednesday’s hearing, where prosecutors questioned Lohan’s community service hours, which included “meet and greets” with London fans.
Another hearing has been scheduled for March 12, when a new community service agency will be selected. She will have until the 28th of May to complete the additional community service.
