The 24-year-old, who’s facing a felony grand theft charge, was told by Judge Keith Schwartz last week that she’d automatically get time in jail if she accepted a plea deal. According to RadarOnline, the starlet’s lawyer Shawn Holley was unable to come to an agreement with Judge Schwartz Wednesday afternoon. That means the Mean Girls actress will now be taking her case to trial.
"Judge Schwartz indicated he would give Lindsay less than the six months the DA was seeking, if she pled in front of him," a source said. "Shawn Holley was asking for no jail time, but the judge said he would sentence her to a minimum of 60 days, but not longer than 90 days." Even if Lohan got a 90-day sentence, she’d most likely only serve about 21 days due to overcrowding in California state prisons.
But the star is allegedly "adamant that she not do any jail time," which is a big factor in why Holley rejected the plea deal offered for her client.
Luckily for Lohan, Kamofie and Company -- the jewelry store accusing her of pilfering their one-of-a-kind necklace -- sold the surveillance tape of her shopping visit to Entertainment Tonight. This move could be seen as the store having financial incentive to accuse her of theft, which might actually help her in the courtroom.
