Lindsay Lohan's lawyer has suggested she serve as a motivational speaker and perform non-jail activities to resolve her latest criminal case.
A letter written by Mark Heller proposed several alternatives to keep Lohan out of prison.
The 26-year-old could be sent to jail if a judge determines her actions following a car crash violated the terms of her probation in her previous theft case.
Heller said Lohan's turbulent home life had affected her deeply, and a different approach was now needed.
His letter, which was filed in Los Angeles on Friday and released by the court on Tuesday, said she plans to spend time recording public service announcements.
It said she would also make "periodic visits to schools, hospitals and other venues where she may provide inspirational talks, encouraging children to pursue positive goals and avoid bad habits".
Lohan's latest case returns to court on Friday.
Heller is seeking a delay in her trial, which is now scheduled for March, on three misdemeanour charges of reckless driving, lying to the police and obstructing officers from performing their duties.
The charges stem from a crash that occurred last June on the Pacific Coast Highway while Lohan was on the way to film Liz & Dick, a TV movie about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
She was heading to a beach shoot with another person when her car crashed into the back of a dumper truck.
Police allege she lied about being behind the wheel. Lohan could face 245 days in jail if she is found to be in violation of her probation.
Santa Monica chief deputy attorney Terry White declined to comment on Lohan's offer.
He said discussions about a possible resolution were scheduled to take place later this week.
