Lindsay Lohan community service hearing rescheduled
Lindsay Lohan community service hearing has been postponed after the city prosecutor fell ill. Concerns had been raised about Lohan’s community service after she was ordered to do 240 hours of community service as part of her 2012 reckless driving case.
The prosecutor is not pleased with how Lohan carried out her community service. The 28 year old received community service credits for activities such as being shadowed and meet and greet with volunteer. “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.”
Terry White, Deputy Santa Monica City Attorney has questioned whether being shadowed and meeting fans qualifies as community service. Lohan has also contacted an insurance company Esurance, in which she was featured in their Super Bowl ad to shell out $10,000 to the London based community service organization she has been working with. This comes days before she was due to be back in court. This could have an impact on the CSV’s response in case the judge ask The CSV about Lohan’s community service.
Shawn Holley, Lindsay's lawyer, says, “TMZ has stooped to a new low. To take Lindsay's positive efforts in supporting CSV and turn them into something negative simply to sell a story is offensive.”
“Lindsay has been involved in helping to raise funds for this wonderful organization since she started her community service there and she has continued her work as a volunteer, even though her community service was completed weeks ago.” He added.
The hearing has been rescheduled to Feb 25.
