London: Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan will carry out her community service in a morgue where she will be regularly exposed to dead bodies.

Lohan has one week to enrol in the programme at the Los Angeles County morgue where she will serve 120 hours with the coroner, doing maintenance and janitorial work in areas where dead bodies are a common sight, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"She will empty trash, vacuum, clean restrooms. She won`t be in the autopsy area. However, there will be some exposure to bodies. She`ll see them but won`t touch them," Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County Coroner told the New York Daily News.

The 24-year-old was sentenced to 120 days in prison and 480 hours of community service last week for breaching the terms of her probation after allegedly stealing a $2,200 necklace from an upmarket jewellers.
