Shame on her: Lindsay Lohan could be going to jail for not doing this

26 January 2015 / 1 year 9 months ago

Lindsay Lohan could face jail for not completing her community service.

The 'Mean Girls' star was required to undergo 240 hours of unpaid work as a punishment for a reckless driving offense in 2012 and is due to show proof of completion on Wednesday (28.01.15) - but insiders told website TMZ she "isn't even close" to finishing her sentence.

Lindsay was originally due to have finished by a court hearing on November 6, 2014, but her lawyer told the judge at the time she had only done half the hours, prompting the new date to be set.

The 'Machete' star will reportedly claim she ran into difficulties because the community service centre in London, England closed for two weeks over the festive season and she was subsequently hospitalised after contracting Chikungunya, a debilitating, untreatable virus caused by mosquito bites.

However, prosecutors may not accept the excuse as she contracted the virus while holidaying in Bora Bora - a time when she could have been completing her community service - and could order a jail sentence.

This isn't the first time Lindsay hasn't abided by court-ordered punishments.

In both 2009 and 2010, she failed to complete alcohol education programmes, while also in 2010 she missed a court hearing, claiming she was stranded in Cannes, France, after having her passport stolen.

She was late for another hearing in 2013 after missing a flight, while in 2010 she had probation revoked after cocaine was found in her system.
