Last court call for Lohan in Los Angeles? Judge may close actress' last open criminal case
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge will determine Thursday whether Lindsay Lohan has completed her community service in a reckless driving case and can finally put her Los Angeles court troubles behind her.
The "Mean Girls" star is under a deadline to complete more than 100 hours by Thursday morning's court hearing. Lohan has been working with a New York organization recently after failing to complete the service in London.
Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said Wednesday he does not have any concerns about Lohan's work in recent weeks with groups in Brooklyn.
"It looks like she's completed her hours," White said.
Lohan remains on probation for a 2012 reckless driving and lying to police case filed after her Porsche collided with a dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway. She was on her way to a film shoot at the time.
The case is the final criminal case against Lohan, who has spent nearly eight years on probation after first being charged with driving under the influence and drug possession in 2007.
At a May 7 court hearing, Lohan still had 115 hours of work left. That prompted Superior Court Judge Mark Young to warn that there would be consequences if she missed another deadline.
Lohan, 28, was ordered to redo 125 hours of service after White objected to her work in London, citing credit she received for meeting with fans of a stage production of "Speed-the-Plow." Lohan received credit for some of her work on the show, despite being assigned to a charity for underprivileged children and disabled adults.
Lohan was first placed on probation in August 2007 after she was charged with driving under the influence and drug possession after two arrests earlier that year. She failed to complete the terms of that case, prompting judges to sentence her to rehab, jail and morgue duty.
In early 2011, Lohan's probation was extended after she was sentenced in a necklace theft case. Both the DUI and theft cases have been dismissed.
