Morgue could be last chance for Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan is taken into custody Wednesday after having her probation revoked.

Lindsay Lohan, found to have violated her probation once again by a judge, has been given one more chance -- at the Los Angeles County morgue.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner on Wednesday revoked Lohan's probation after she was kicked out of a community service program at a downtown women's shelter for repeatedly failing to show up. Lohan has completed only 21 hours of the 360 hours she was ordered to serve at the women's shelter.

Sautner will decide next month whether Lohan should be sent back to jail.

The judge urged Lohan to perform 16 hours of community at the county morgue each week until the hearing.

"It's an eight-hour shift," she said. "You show up, and do what they tell you to do."

Lohan's attorney said she was reporting to the morgue Thursday.

A spokesman for the actress told the Associated Press: "Lindsay is hoping this matter will be resolved on Nov. 2 and the court will reinstate probation and allow her to continue fulfilling her community service."

When Sautner gave Lohan a 120-day jail sentence for shoplifting early this year, she ended up serving only 35 days under house arrest because of jail overcrowding.
