Court hearing held today to review Lindsay Lohan’s community service

A court hearing will be held today to determine if Lindsay Lohan is adhering to the guidelines of her community service requirements, with a prosecutor questioning whether meeting with fans and allowing young people to shadow her in London qualifies.

Lohan, 28, was ordered to perform community service as part of her probation stemming from a 2012 crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica during the production of the film “Liz & Dick.”

During a hearing last month, Santa Monica Deputy City Attorney Terry White told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard A. Stone that Lohan was receiving community-service credit for activities including a meet-and-greet with volunteers and a “work shadowing experience” with two young people whom White said were “basically hanging out with her.”

“If this was Lindsay Smith, nobody would allow this,” the prosecutor said. “I’d love to hang out with a celebrity all day and see their life, but this is not community service.”

White also questioned whether Lohan had performed community service during a recent illness.

Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, told the judge last month that her client continued to perform the work despite the illness.

Holley said she was satisfied that a “true level of community service has been performed by Ms. Lohan,” despite what White had said. The defense lawyer said she felt that the prosecutor’s concerns would be best addressed if he had contacted the director of the United Kingdom volunteer operation with which Lohan worked.

Lohan is not required to attend the hearing.

Lohan pleaded no contest in March 2013 to reckless driving and lying to police in connection with a June 8 collision in the 1100 block of Pacific Coast Highway involving a Porsche and a dump truck.

Lohan told officers she was a passenger in the car, but investigators later determined the actress was behind the wheel when the Porsche crashed into the rear of the truck.

As a result of her plea, Lohan was ordered to complete 30 days of community service, spend 90 days in a locked rehabilitation facility and to undergo 18 months of psychotherapy during a two-year probationary term.

Lohan’s attorney said she will ask the judge to end Lohan’s probation once all of the requirements are deemed to have been met.

The prosecutor — who had objected to Lohan being allowed to perform the community service in London where the actress now lives — said outside court that jail is an option if Lohan has not complied with her obligations.
