Lindsay Lohan Ordered To Work In A Morgue

However, the Mean Girls actress' first day didn't get off to the best start...

Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to complete 16 hours of community service at a morgue in a bid to avoid jail.

After having her probation revoked earlier this week, judge Stephanie Sautner informed the Mean Girls actress that she must finish her service at the morgue in Los Angeles before her next court hearing on 2nd November.

Sautner told LiLo: "It's an eight-hour shift. You show up and do what they tell you to do."

According to The Sun, coroner's office sources have claimed Lohan's tasks will include clearing up body parts and fluids on autopsy tables, as well as cleaning the toilets and rubbish.

Despite being given some grim tasks, US reports have stated the 25-year old will not have to handle any bodies.

Lohan will have to complete all 16 hours of community service in the next two weeks to have a chance at not being put back in prison.

However, Lindsay got off to a bad start on her first day - arriving at the morgue 40 minutes late and being sent away, with her spokesperson blaming: "a combination of not knowing the entrance and confusion caused by the waiting media."

Lohan later tweeted: "I'm sorry for the confusion that I may of caused. Won't happen again, now I know where to go!" with chief coroner Craig Harvey adding: "She has to show up on time."

LiLo faces up to 18 months behind bars after repeatedly breaking terms of her probation, which is the result of a 2007 drink-driving offence.
