Lindsay Lohan is headed for legal trouble yet again, as she may be thrown in jail due to not completing her court-ordered community service on time.

The 28-year-old Mean Girls actress was initially ordered to complete 240 hours of community service as part of a plea deal stemming from a 2012 reckless driving conviction in California.

Back in February a judge ordered an additional 125 community service hours be fulfilled by Lindsay, but according to prosecutors on the case she has come up far short ahead of a hearing taking place this Thursday.

"We'll probably ask that her probation be revoked," prosecutor Terry White told the New York Daily News. "It doesn't appear she's taking it very seriously."

According to reports, Lindsay has only completed 20 hours of the additional 125 community service hours she was slapped with a few months ago. In February a judge threw out more than half her hours, calling her efforts “unacceptable”.

In one instance she got credit for six hours of community service work despite the fact that four hours were for acting on stage in Speed-The-Plow and the remaining two were for meeting fans.

Her progress report hearing on May 7 is just a check-in before her community service due date on May 28.

And should the star not complete the court-ordered labour she could find herself in jail.

"She's had more than enough opportunity to finish. But she turned in some hours that were extremely suspect, that the court disallowed, and now, given the last chance of all last chances, she's come up woefully short," attorney White said.

Lindsay has had many brushes with the law and in 2010 she spent 14 days of a 90-day sentence in prison after a judge ruled she’d violated the terms of her 2007 DUI probation by missing mandatory classes and meetings. She was arrested twice within weeks for driving under the influence eight years ago.
