Sentenced to 480 hours of community service for violating her probation (incurred from a 2007 DUI), for 120 of those hours Lindsay Lohan will look death in the eye — literally.
According to PEOPLE, Lohan, 24, will be serving a portion of her community service hours at the LA County Department of Coroner’s facility doing a myriad of janitorial tasks including picking up and emptying trash as well as cleaning floors and bathrooms.
“She won’t be handling any dead bodies but she’ll certainly see them,” Coroner Assistant Chief, Ed Winter, told People.
But this brush with death isn’t anything new for Lohan. She served her previous 2007 community service hours at the facility. But this time Lohan will be seeing more than dead people. She will serve her remaining 360 community service hours at LA’s Downtown Women’s Center.
The troubled starlet, who has a 120-day jail sentence to look forward to, has one year to complete all of her service hours.
Following her most recent hearing, during which her grand theft charge was reduced to a misdemeanor, Lohan’s lawyer filed an appeal of her 120-day sentence. Lohan is currently free on bail, after a bondsman put up $75,000, until her forthcoming May 11 pretrial hearing in which she will receive a sentence for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, California boutique.
Lohan previously refused a plea deal which, in turn, led to a judge’s warning that her case would definitely involve jail time — her criminal misdemeanor sentence will be in addition to her 120-day sentence for probation violation.
Only one question remains. What does one wear to work at a morgue? Any Suggestions?
