Lindsay Lohan has only completed a tiny fraction of her remaining community service while on probation for a reckless driving case and will face "consequences" if she doesn't finish later this month, a Los Angeles judge has warned.

Judge Mark Young said he was concerned Lohan had managed less than 10 hours of 125 hours of service she was ordered to complete over three years.

"If not done by May 28, there will be consequences," Young said.


Lohan (28) is on probation for reckless driving and lying to police after crashing her Porsche in Santa Monica on her way to a film shoot in 2012.

The actress wasn't in court for her probation hearing, but would be expected to show up later if she misses the deadline and prosecutors ask that she be found in violation of probation.

If that happens, they plan to ask for jail time.

Santa Monica Deputy City Attorney Melanie Skehar was skeptical Lohan could accomplish the steep task ahead of her in the next three weeks.

"Is it possible? It's possible. Is it probable? No," Skehar said. "When you have a responsibility and you know what you have to complete by a certain date, there's no excuse."

The once-promising star, whose career has been overshadowed by legal troubles, could face up to a year and a half behind bars.
