Lindsay Lohan Back in Court to Face Felony Grand Theft Charges over $2,500 Necklace


Once again actress Lindsay Lohan finds herself in a world of trouble. Lohan is due in court to face grand theft criminal charges in the theft of a $2500 necklace from a jewelry store. Lohan is denying the charges. The obvious bet at this point is what are the odds that Lohan will wind up in the “big house” as opposed to the big screen first. It would appear from the actions of the troubled actress that its an even money bet.

Lindsay Lohan is due in court to face a new judge, and a new criminal charge, that could return the troubled starlet to jail rather than the big screen.

The “Mean Girls” star is due to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon on a felony grand theft charge that prosecutors say they will file over a $2,500 necklace reported stolen by an upscale jewelry store.

The charge is the latest – and most serious – legal problem for the actress, who remains on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case.

Police and prosecutors allege Lohan, 24, took the necklace from a store in the beachside community of Venice on Jan. 22, weeks after she was released from a rehab facility where she was also accused of misconduct.

How much more trouble can one person continually get in to? It’s obvious that this girl is spiralling out of control. How will it end? Sadly, we have seen this story play out over the years and it’s never a happy movie ending.

UPDATE I: Lohan Accused of Stealing Mink, Rolex in Past, Freed on $40,000 bail.

Lindsay Lohan is free on $40,000 bail after pleading not guilty to felony grand theft charges involving a one-of-a-kind necklace whose owner puts its value at $2,500.

And, reports CBS News correspondent Bill Whitaker, this isn’t the first time the troubled actress has been accused of stealing a valuable item.

      It took a Judge to get Martin Downey Jr. straight. Hopefully the Judge will be tough on LL.

      Put her in a cell for 4 years with a cellie that looks like our DHS director Janet “Butch” Napolitano….After that, I bet Ms. Lohan FINALLY gets her head unstuck…JMHO

      Ugliest piece of BLING on Earth.

      Linsay Lohan is on a bobsled to hell, gaining speed. She has shown no interest in changing her behavior, and has enablers galore.

      We’ve seen this scenario before. If she doesn’t grow up, you know where it will end. She has a lot of company. Unfortunately, none of them are acting anymore, except maybe on skid row, or in the cemetery.

      It’s sad to watch a train wreck like that, especially for someone who started with so much promise.

      This is what you report?wHERes the story about the republican perv showing his junk on Craigslist?A member of the house!!!If that was dummocrat youd be freaking out with your phony outrage/reagan is a god conservative BS! as always\!!proves your a hack.
      SM: Actually, it shows just how much of a putz that you really are. A note to Johndao, the uniformed, the post you are referencing was wrote prior to the news story you are referencing. Gee, I bet if you look on SM you will find a post on the Congressman.

      Who has no cred, you foolish troll. Don’e ever tell this site what we can and cannot write about. Why don’t you get off your lazzzzy a$$ and do one yourself. What a novel concept rather than being a TROLL.

      She is so self-destructive. Why risk your professional life over, what to her, is a trinket? Time to get straight.

      Don’t you have to go to court then your bail is set? Don’t think I’ve ever heard of bail being set before somebody goes to court.

      And here I thought she had money. Why would she need to shoplift when she can afford to pay for it? Or has she spent all her money?
      SM: She does have money, Lohan just has more issues than $’s. If this girl does not get help soon we will be sadly reading one final story.

      Lets hope not, she reminds me of Drew Barrymore…not one of my favorite actresses but she had a lot of trouble when she was young and was able to pull herself out. maybe Lindsey can do the same!!! I don’t care for her movies either but she is a person with everything to gain and everything to loose. No matter my opinion of her movies i hope the best for her!!!! i hope the best for anyone in trouble!!! I know personally how no matter what nothing is enough to save them, they have to save themselves!!!!

      [...] Sautner also ruled  that the necklace theft case against Lohan will go forward to trial; however, the felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. [...]
