Lindsay Lohan to be charged with felony grand theft

Lindsay Lohan just can't seem to keep out of the reach of the long arm of the law. Prosecutors plan to charge Lohan on Wednesday with felony grand theft in the case of a necklace that Lohan is accused of taking from a Venice, Calif., jewelry store.

The recently rehabbed star has been asked to surrender tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. at Los Angeles's Airport Courthouse. The charge could land Lohan back in jail since she's still on probation for a 2007 DUI conviction. And, for the alleged heist, she could face up to three years in prison.

Lilo has pleaded innocent in the court of public opinion, saying it was her stylist who mistakenly failed to return the $2,500 necklace to Kamofie and Co. Jewelers.

"We vehemently deny these allegations," said Lohan's attorney in a statement. "If charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press."

Well if Lindsay thought her life was so bad before that she had to get high to stand it, she's really in for it now. All her get out of jail free passes are used up. I pray for her true spiritual awakening.

Looking forward to the pics on TMZ tomorrow of her partying tonight. Because heaven forbid she show up for her hearing well rested and not hung over.

I think a picture of the necklace would complete the story.

No doubt Miss Lohan will claim that it is an apPARENT TRAP by a prosecutor who is jealous of her celebrity.

And she got upset over "Milkaholic". What a tool.

Once she cries on television and is forgiven for her 'mistakes' she should be able to clean up financially by writing her memoirs. Heck, maybe she could go into politics! I wonder if a Sara Palin/Lindsay Lohan ticket would attract enough 'eyeballs' for them to follow in the footsteps of Eva Peron or Imelda Marcos......

Hey Georgetowner,

You should give the spiritual garbage a rest. Nobody cares what your idiot "god" thinks anyway.

I don't think the Lohan freight elevator has hit rock bottom yet... Porno, here she comes!

The kind of awakening that LiLo really needs is the legal kind. Meanwhile, she's pled "Innocent" to these latest charges (because denial is still a river in Egypt).
