Lindsay Lohan pleads not guilty, faces second legal problem

Lindsay Lohan is pleading not guilty to charges of felony grand theft, after she told friends that she didn’t see any reason to plead any other way, since she doesn’t believe she did anything wrong.  The charge stems from a $2,500 necklace that Lindsay says the jewelry store loaned her.  The owner of the store says Lindsay never had permission to take it.

As if that weren’t enough, Lindsay faces a second court fight against a woman named Lorit Simon, who has filed suit against Lindsay for allegedly skipping out on a $41,000 bill that was owed for tanning services.  Who on earth pays $41,000 for tanning?  Well, not Lindsay, apparently.

Lindsay Lohan faces charges for stolen necklace

So it’s really happening – Lindsay Lohan will face felony grand theft charges for the $2,500 necklace she is accused of stealing.  Lindsay claims that the necklace was given to her as a loan, and that the accusations of theft are a sad attempt by the jewelry store owner to set her up and gain some attention, just because Lindsay is an easy target.

If Lindsay is convicted of the theft, she faces up to a three year sentence – not in county jail like before, but in state prison.  Her lawyers have said they’re confident that the charges won’t stick and that the court will easily see that the accusations are complete nonsense.
