An L.A. County District Attorney plans to charge actress Lindsay Lohan with a felony after she was accused of stealing a necklace worth $2,50, and then donning it days after she allegedly stole it. For those you who don’t know, on January 22, 2011, a necklace went missing from a Venice, CA jewelry store. Evidence implicating Lohan was recorded on the jewelry store’s surveillance camera. Secondary proof was captured in numerous photographs taken of the celebrity wearing the necklace while she was out and about in the days following the heist.
Long story short — the troubled actress is placing the blame squarely on others. Shortly after it was reported that a search warrant was being issued to go through her Venice home, an associate of Lindsay’s turned the necklace in to the LAPD.
Lilo claims the $2,500 bling was on loan to her — a fact that the jeweler emphatically denies. Currently on probation, the actress faces up to 3 years in prison if convicted of felony grand theft.
Legal eagle Shawn Chapman Holley was put on notice by the D.A. that charges are forthcoming. She reportedly discussed the matter with her client on Friday. The lawyer issued this terse statement: “We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court.”
