Article: Lindsay Lohan to Clean L.A. Morgue
"As a result of being found in violation of probation, Lindsay Lohan will be collecting trash, emptying trash bins, mopping floors and cleaning windows and restrooms at the L.A. County Department of Coroner's facility.
"She won't be handling any dead bodies but she'll certainly see them,” Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter tells People of the actress, 24, who also has been ordered to complete 360 hours of service at the Downtown Women's Center, a homeless shelter located in L.A.'s Skid Row.
Lohan must enroll in the two programs within a week and has a year to complete them, according to People.
The actress – who previously completed a DUI morgue program following her second drunk-driving conviction 2007 – remains free on $75,000 bail (she was sentenced to 120 days behind bars Friday).
The trial in her grand theft charge begins June 3. If convicted, she faces a maximum penalty of an additional year in jail."
I know this couldn't have happened to a better person-- no, wait, I'm wrong. It could have - and should have - happened to the other idiot, Paris Hilton. Let's have them do it together!
I am bitter that the stars of the world (which is to say the rich and famous) get away with behaviour that we would immediately do time and/or community service. We may not be well known, but clearly the message is a simple one: if this your 15 minutes of fame, this is the time to be publicly drunk, beating your spouse, doing cocaine (and telling the arresting constabulary that this isn't your bag and you know that this stuff was gum), etc. Because you can do that and get away with it!
I guess Lindsay has been arrested SO many times that the "rich & famous" statute of limitations has actually run out!
I wonder if any of the bodies will educate her?
