Updated throughout...

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.

She's been a frequent flyer in LA jails & they still need her prints?

DNA? Did she use the necklace to strangle someone?

They want her DNA to ensure that she never, ever happens again.

"If convicted, Lohan could spend up to three years in prison."

Will it be one of those "Federal pound-me-in-the-a**" prisons that Michael Bolton is so scared of in Office Space?

To paraphrase Peter's neighbour Lawrence: "Yo, LiLo - watch out for the ol' corn-hole."

Byoo' I realize that the ingenuity of prison inmates to fabricate tools is legendary, but I have yet to read about the fabrication of a strap-on in the shop of a womens prison.

Wearing her do you want to hit this outfit.

Lindsay...get ye to the porn industry. There your behavior will instantly become a career norm - not to mention your very marketable natural(?) assets. That I'd pay to see.

This morning on the Today show, they went on & on about the dress. I thought it looked fine. It's tight, but it's high necked & long-sleeved. Some commentator said "you should wear to court what you would wear to church or temple." I think it fits that criteria - and Lindsey(I wouldn't wear it, of course, or God would gouge out his eyeballs).

Wow, I just defended Lilo... but the defense ends at the dress.
