In the latest chapter that is known as Lindsay Lohan’s legal woes, yesterday she rejected a judge’s offer to end the felony grand theft case. The reason? Her lawyer indicated she has a strong defense and is confident that an acquittal will be won. Find out more after the jump!
After Lindsay told the judge she is rejecting the plea offer, her attorney released a statement. According to the Huffington Post, it read: “Ms. Lohan has maintained her innocence from the moment this case was filed and she has never wavered.”
Although the judge hadn’t publicly released details of the offer to Lindsay, he mentioned she would have been sentenced to jail if she had pleaded no contest or admitted guilt in taking the $2,500 necklace. Now that she’s rejected the offer, she’ll have to appear in court on April 22 for a preliminary hearing.
At that point Lindsay will face a new judge who will ascertain whether or not there’s enough evidence for her to stand trial on charges of felony grand theft. If the judge determines she should indeed stand trial, Lindsay could be immediately sentenced for a probation violation from the DUI case and could be sent to jail for…wait for it…a fourth time.
