Lindsay Lohan due in court on theft charges
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: After numerous reports regarding Lindsay Lohan’s next potential acting gig – she has been linked to a role in the John Gotti film, though most of the reports seem to be coming out of LiLo’s camp, and not from the actual film’s producers – we’re right back to reporting on Lohan’s criminal activities, and all feels right with the world.
Lohan will be in court today, Friday, for a preliminary hearing regarding her potential involvement in the theft of a necklace from a California jewelry store. In typical Lohan fashion, she did her best to postpone the court hearing, citing religious beliefs. (It’s Good Friday, and Lohan claims to be Catholic, though she probably couldn’t tell you that “Thou shalt not steal” is a commandment.)
ABC News says that prosecutors “are expected to question the shop owner who says surveillance video shows the ‘Mean Girls’ actress walking out of the store wearing the designer necklace for which she had not paid.”
Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, meanwhile, will argue that the necklace’s value is less than $900, thereby reducing the charge to a misdemeanor.
As ABC News reports, Lohan “has already been to jail three times in the past three years for DUI, drug possession and probation violations.”
