LiLo: I’m here to help

Lindsay Lohan announced on Instagram she is in New York City, where the star is planning on completing her court-ordered community service.

The 28-year-old Mean Girls actress is currently on probation stemming from her 2012 reckless driving conviction in California and back in February she was ordered to complete 125 hours of community service by May 28.

In court last week Lindsay’s attorneys made it clear she would be finishing her labour in Brooklyn, as she fell far short of the fulfilment of her legal obligations by only completing 9 hours and 45 minutes of her community service sentence while residing in London, England.

And on Monday the star gushed about how excited she is to have returned to the Big Apple.

“Happy to be home in nyc with my family and friends. Missed this place. ready to help (sic),” she wrote on Instagram in a caption attached to a picture of herself in a room with an unidentified woman playing guitar.

Lindsay closed out her Instagram statement with a couple of prayer emojis.

The New York Daily News reports she will be working with Brooklyn Community Services at the Duffield Children’s Center, which is located in the Fort Greene area of Brooklyn. According to TMZ, Lindsay will have to work seven hours per days seven days per week in order to fulfill the 125-hour sentence by May 28.

“We can confirm that she will be volunteering with us at Duffield. She did a great job with the kids last time. She’s coming in tomorrow to complete the community service,” BCS spokesman Nish Suvarnakar told the New York Daily News on Monday.

During the May 7 hearing, the judge presiding over Lindsay’s case made it clear there will be “serious consequences” if her community service hours aren’t complete by the deadline. The judge has the power to throw her in jail.
