Lindsay Lohan is Headed to Trial

March 10, 2011
Lindsay Lohan is set to go to trial over the alleged theft of a $2,500 necklace after refusing to enter a plea bargain.

Lohan turned up to court this morning looking as fashionable as ever to tell the court she has rejected all plea deals. The troubled actress looked sexy in a skintight, flesh-colored mini-dress and acted calmly throughout the court appearance.

Lohan is next due in court April 22, but could return earlier on March 25 if she decides to cop a plea. Judge Keith Schwartz told Lohan, “The only reason you will appear in front of me to plead guilty or no contest. If you plead in front of me -- if this case is resolved in front of me -- you are going to go to jail. Period. It may be an issue as to the amount of time.... I don't want you under any apprehension. You will be going to jail.”

Any deal Lohan and her lawyers accept is likely to involve guaranteed jail time. The prosecutor’s original deal was six month jail and three years felony probation. The problem for Lohan is if she cops a deal she will violate her probation which stems from a 2007 DUI. Lohan has already been to jail three times because of that DUI.

Lohan and her people have vehemently denied the theft allegation maintaining the troubled actress took the necklace on “loan.” Security footage of Lohan leaving the Venice, California jewelry store was recently sold to the Associated Press. Lohan’s people say, “They clearly loaned her the necklace. The surveillance tapes show so many inconsistencies in the (store owner's) story.”

Lohan has two weeks to work out a plea deal. The clock has started ticking.
