In her current starring role as alleged shoplifter, Lindsay Lohan will also be cleaning morgues at the local L.A. county coroner.

The actress was recently found in violation of her probation after she allegedly stole a $2,500 necklace. In addition to a four-month jail term and 360 hours of community service at a homeless shelter, Lohan was also ordered to serve 120 hours at the L.A. County Department of Coroner.

It also won’t be the first time she’s made a trip down to the county morgue – she was last there in 2007 completing a drunk-driving conviction. Her responsibilities will include picking up trash while cleaning the windows and restrooms.

“She’ll be doing basic janitorial work,” Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter said. “She won’t be handling any dead bodies but she’ll certainly see them.”

The whole point of the sentence, the judge said, is also to let Lindsay “see what happens when people drink and drive.”
