Lindsay Lohan booked on jewelry heist charge
A Los Angeles County judge on Wednesday afternoon officially booked Lindsay Lohan on charges of felony grand theft. Lohan, who turned up for her court date in a skintight white minidress pleaded not guilty. Bail is set at $20,000 and Lilo is due back in court on Feb. 23.
And on Feb. 25 for a probation progress hearing stemming from a 2007 DUI conviction.
Superior Court Judge Keith L. Schwartz warned Lohan, "You're in a different situation now that a felony has been filed against you. If you violate the law, I will remand you and set no bail and your attorney won't be successful this time. ... You need to follow the laws just like everybody else. ... You're no different than anyone else, so please don't push your luck."
Lohan is accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, Calif., jewelry store on Jan. 22. The necklace was reportedly last seen in the vicinity of her neck and a surveillance video allegedly shows Lohan leaving the store wearing the necklace. Though Lohan -- through her lawyers -- has denied any wrong-doing and even blamed a stylist for failing to return the bauble.
Prosecutors are also seeking fingerprints and a DNA sample from Lohan, according to the criminal complaint.
If convicted, Lohan could spend up to three years in prison. And how this will affect her current probation statu or her (totally unlikely) casting in "Superman" is unknown. Lohan is also still under investigation for allegedly shoving a Betty Ford Center staffer in December.
