Lindsay Lohan Considering Jail-Free Plea Bargain
She entered a "not guilty" plea in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, but Lindsay Lohan would consider taking a deal if no prison time were involved in the bargain, according to her attorney.
"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.
Lohan, whose probation for a 2007 DUI conviction was revoked, was released yesterday after posting 10 percent of the $40,000 bail ordered by Judge Keith Schwartz. The next hearing on the matter is February 23.
