Lindsay Lohan often a no-show for community service work

LohanActress Lindsay Lohan has rarely appeared at a women's shelter and never shown up at the coroner's office, where she is supposed to do a combined 480 hours of community service, law enforcement sources said.

Lohan was ordered in May to have her community service completed by next April in connection with her conviction for stealing a necklace from a Venice jeweler.

Lohan has completed 21 of 360 hours required at the skid row shelter for women, according to law enforcement sources.

Jane Robison, a Los Angeles district attorney's office spokeswoman, confirmed that because she failed to keep appointments at the women's center, she was transferred to the American Red Cross for those community service hours.

Lohan on several occasions failed to appear for her appointed shifts at the skid row center and on some occasions worked less than the four hours she was required to complete each day.

In addition, Lohan has yet to appear at the Los Angeles County coroner's office, where she must complete 120 hours of janitorial work.

Judge Stephanie Sautner will review Lohan's probation progress next week as part of a sentence stemming from probation in drunken driving and misdemeanor theft cases.

She also was ordered to enroll in psychological counseling and complete anti-shoplifting classes.

Sautner has previously warned Lohan, "I'm not going to give her five minutes extra. I don't want to hear 'Oh I couldn't do it because I was on the set of the John Gotti movie.' "

At the time, Lohan's attorney, Shawn Holley, said the actress understands the one-year deadline.
