Lindsay Lohan loves accessories so much she sometimes wanders out of the store wearing some without paying. So how will she enjoy spending 480 hours donning rubber gloves and accessorizing with mops, sponges, and industrial disinfectant? The actress has a whole lot of community service to complete, per Friday's ruling by Judge Stephanie Sautner, explains LA Now.Lohan will spend 360 hours at the Women's Center on Skid Row, and 120 hours at the Mission Road coroner's office as part of her sentence for parole violation and accidentally swiping a necklace from a Venice jewelry store.

Although Lohan's team is appealing the ruling, Sautner says the actress must begin her community service janitorial work immediately. She must start chipping away at her hours within a week, and has one year to complete the 480 hours.

Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the coroner's office says Lohan will receive the same treatment as any of the many other community service works assigned to his department. Hopefully she will not wander off absentmindedly with anything she finds around the morgue.
