You say that you got a call saying “that you are not able to complete your community service.” Why can’t you complete your community service? If the place is no longer offering community service then you should contact the court immediately to set up another place for you to go to complete it. You say that you only have 13 hrs to go. DO NOT LIE ABOUT COMPLETING YOUR COMMUNITY SERVICE!!! You are playing with fire if you do. Explain your reasons to the court for not completing your community service on time - and the reasons better be good! Ask for more time to complete it if that is the issue. Or get it done 13 hrs is nothing compared to jail time.
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE IS CREATED OR EXISTS. Do not rely on any answers you get online from me or any other lawyers in this forum---nothing substitutes for a confidential and protected discussion with an attorney. There is no way you have provided sufficient information for a proper legal analysis—can’t be done online. This is a general legal question and answer site and guidance here is for general interest---a push in the right direction.
You should not lie in court or to your probation officer. That would be dumb, frankly, especially after you posted your question online for everybody to see. If you have time to work, you have time to complete community service. Period. You won't go to jail for missing some work, but you could go to jail if you don't complete your community service.
If you lied about the community service you would probably be found out and revoked and sent to jail. You have to have some certificate of letter from the place you did the hours to prove completion.
