Lindsay Lohan, who was released from rehab at the beginning of the year, is still in hot water over the $2500 necklace that she allegedly stole. When she went to court this past week, the judge stated that if Lohan accepted the DA’s plea bargain and pleads guilty or no contest, she would be sent to jail. Judge Keith L. Schwartz did not mince words when he told the 24-year-old actress that she would be treated like any member of the public during the trial.
Schwartz told Lohan that, “You will be treated exactly the same as anyone else, no better, no worse…This case does involve jail time. Period. If you plead in front of me — if this case resolves in front of me — you are going to jail. Period. I don’t want you under any apprehension. You will be going to jail.”
Lohan is standing trial for allegedly stealing $2,500 necklace from a jewelry shop in Venice last month. Lohan last appeared before the court two weeks ago and pleaded not guilty when the charge was read out to her. The case has been adjourned to 10th of March. Judges Schwartz handed the evidence from the prosecution to the attorney of the star for them to study it. Lohan could be sentenced to 3 years in jail if she is found guilty.
