Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to community service for reckless driving in 2012, and now court prosecutors are questioning if her subsequent activities count as truly giving back to the community.

The Associated Press reported via Yahoo that Lohan wasn't present for the Wednesday court date in Santa Monica, California, but in her stead was attorney Shawn Holley.

Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said during the hearing that that he doubted Lohan completed the 80 hours of community service in just nine days. Furthermore, he said that Lohan's claims of doing fan meet-and-greets, as well as allowing young people to shadow her during her performance prep for "Speed-the-Plow" in London, didn't seem to rise to the level of community service.

"I'd love to hang out with a celebrity all day and see their life, but that's not community service," he said. "If this was Lindsay Smith, nobody would allow this."

White requested that Superior Court Judge Richard Stone set another court date so that he would have time to investigate the claims. It was granted, and set for Feb. 18. White threatened jail time for Lohan should he find evidence her claims were falsified.

He asked Lohan's attorney how the star managed to interact with fans and apprentices while she was recovering from a virus she contracted on a recent holiday trip to French Polynesia.

"She powered through it," answered Holley.

According to the AP, Lohan's troubles with the law began with probation in 2007, after she was arrested more than once for driving under the influence. She later went to rehab, but was charged with stealing a necklace after being released in 2011.
