Lindsay Lohan just might be up shit creek.

When Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 125 hours of community service following a 2012 Santa Monica traffic crash, it seemed like a fairly easy task to complete. But then Lindsay Lohan moved to London to work on David Mamet's "Speed-the-Plow." Now she is under warning that she has just a few days to complete her community service time back in the United States or she could face jail time.

Lindsay Lohan reportedly has 115 hours of the 125 left to do. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark Young informed Lindsay Lohan’s attorney on Thursday that she must haul her butt back to Brooklyn to complete her required community service by May 28 or face "consequences." Prosecutors have said that they intend to seek jail time if she misses the deadline, which has already been extended once.

“She’s had an opportunity to do this. If the court’s not going to accept this, then we have to figure out if jail is the next option,” Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White said.

Lindsay Lohan's attorneys say that she had arranged to complete her community service while in London, but the facility she was to work at then relocated to an hour and a half away. Originally, they had claimed she had completed her time in London, but further investigation revealed that she claimed hours served while she was, in fact, in the hospital.

So the New York Daily News reports that Lindsay Lohan will start serving at Duffield Children’s Center in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. She will be working with pre-schoolers. But she only has 14 weekdays to complete 115 hours of service. At that rate, she would have to work eight hours a day, five days a week. If she is able to do weekend work there, that is still over six hours a day, every day through the deadline date.

Lindsay Lohan was charged with three misdemeanors in 2013 after a 2012 reckless driving incident in California.
