Lindsay Lohan: No plea deal (yet) in grand theft case

By Liz Kelly

Lindsay Lohan reportedly will not strike a plea deal to avoid jail time in the case of the possibly pilfered necklace. According to TMZ, Lohan will go to trial after judge Keith L. Schwartz made it clear in a Wednesday hearing that she would face jail time if she agreed to a plea deal.

Lohan is accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Santa Monica, Calif. jewelry store. She pleaded not guilty to the charges in February, but prosecutors have since produced a surveillance tape showing Lohan leaving the store wearing the necklace.

In related news, Lohan was reportedly stopped by cops Sunday in West Hollywood after a Porsche she was driving was clocked at 59 MPH in a 30 MPH zone.

Lohan is, of course, still on probation stemming from a 2007 DUI conviction.

We'll update with more details as they become available.

Based on her comments regarding the white dress signifying her innocence,it appears she's only half innocent today. Or as the pessimist might look at it, half guilty.

I'm pretty sure she's going to reconsider that plea deal because if she goes to trial they have other photos of her coming out of a night club wearing someone else's mink coat after she stole that too, not to mention many other instances where Lindsay chose trouble over honesty.

At this point, all of Lindsay's illegal actions amount to a cry for help.

Trial is a smart move. California juries don't convict celebs so Lindsay stays steps ahead of the law.

She shouldn't even be offered a plea deal. She needs to go to jail and stay there for a few years. LL is a repeat offender, and until the judges quit going soft on her, she will escalate her defiant behavior.

Force her to undergo a mental status eval. I'd bet she has O.D.D. (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) in addition to her drug and alcohol problems, and her theft charge. LL's behavior shows a young woman 'crying' for attention....and she's not getting attention (yet) from the mental health professionals.
Why is it that all the signs are there, but everyone ignores them until AFTER the mentally ill person has harmed someone else? LL is no different. Right now, she's only harming herself....but that could quickly change.

"When she walks she'll jiggle like jelly."

Which is poetic, elegant, perceptive, merciful and wise.
