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.
