Lindsay Lohan to clean floors at L.A. morgue

Lindsay Lohan's next role will involve a broom and mop. And no, she will not be playing Cinderella.

The "Mean Girls" actress will soon be starring as a janitor at the Los Angeles County coroner's office thanks to a judge's decision last week to sentence her to 120 hours at the county morgue as part of a probation violation sentence for an alleged jewelry theft.

Judge Stephanie Sautner on Friday sentenced Lohan to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service, including 360 hours at the downtown Women's Center on skid row and 120 hours at the Mission Road coroner's office.

The judge ruled that Lohan violated the terms of her 2007 probation by wearing a gold chain as she left a jewelry store and failing to return it until she learned that detectives were preparing to serve a search warrant.

While Lohan is appealing Sautner's ruling, the judge said she must start the service hours within a week. The actress has a year to complete the required hours.

"We have community service workers all the time," said Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the coroner's office. "They do janitorial tasks. They clean up and sweep up."
