"Ms. Lohan maintains her innocence, and now that I've seen the police reports, I believe the case is entirely defensible," Shawn Chapman Holley told CNN. "Having said that, we will entertain a discussion concerning a plea if it means no jail so that she can move forward with her recovery and her career."

The Mean Girls star, 24 stands accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, Calif. jewelry store on January 22. If convicted she faces up to three years in prison.
