Lindsay Lohan has been ordered by a judge to complete 125 hours of community service in 20 days or she will face jail time. Will she do it, or will she enlist the efforts of a highly-paid lawyer to once again get her out of her obligation?

This community service sentence comes as a result of a 2012 car crash in Santa Monica. Lindsay Lohan was working on this sentence while living in Brooklyn, where she was filming a TV show. Presently living in London, prosecutors recently complained that she isn't holding up her end of the bargain. Lohan is in London starring in a play called Speed-the-Plow.

On Thursday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark Young told Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer that the actress must return to Brooklyn by May 28th to complete her community service. She has thus far only performed 10 hours of her sentence.

Shawn Holley, an attorney for Lindsay Lohan, defends the actress, saying it is "technically impossible" for her to have finished the hours in London because it's limited to four hours a day and the facility she was working with has moved --meaning it is now a 90-minute commute from her home.

In Brooklyn, Lindsay Lohan was doing her community service at Brooklyn Community Services, which placed her at Fort Greene’s Duffield Children’s Center. The group also runs centers in New York's Bedford-Stuyvesant and East New York neighborhoods. Shawn Holley has recommended to Lindsay Lohan that she return to Brooklyn and complete her work there.

During the 2012 car crash, Lindsay Lohan was charged with three misdemeanors, including reckless driving and allegedly lying to Santa Monica police, for an accident that involved her Porsche.

Do you think Lindsay Lohan will actually return to Brooklyn and complete 125 hours of community service in 20 days? Or will she once again do her best to slip out of her responsibilities and dodge her jail time, too?
