"Lindsay Lohan has pleaded not guilty to a felony grand-theft charge
after she was accused of stealing a necklace from a Venice, California
jewelry store. Prosecutors in Los Angeles formally charged the actress on Wednesday
just hours before she entered her plea before Superior Court Judge
Keith L. Schwartz."
That is what SeattlePi.com had to say about Lindsay Lohan's, 24, recent arrest for theft of a necklace.
The judge in the case, Judge Keith L. Schwartz, had some tough words for Lohan: "You're in a different situation now with a felony. You're no different than anyone else, so please, don't push your luck."
"Judge Schwartz also issued an additional $20,000 in revoking the actress' probation for a 2007 misdemeanor DUI conviction."
Lohan was said to be "smiling as she arrived at the Airport Courthouse, wearing a
fetching, skin-tight white mini-dress and dark sunglasses. She was also
dripping with jewelry."
Some sources say that she is open to a plea deal, if it does not entail jail time.
Her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, had some words for the people who might criticize her and of the supposed plea bargain, according to US Magazine: "Ms. Lohan maintains her innocence, and now that I've seen the police
reports, I believe the case is entirely defensible. Having said that, we will entertain a discussion concerning a plea if
it means no jail so that she can move forward with her recovery and her
The next hearing on the matter is February 23rd.
As you may recall, I have written one past blog on Lindsay Lohan. In it, I said that Lindsay Lohan would either be back in rehab in a month or in jail. That was on January 4th. Now, a little MORE than a month later, she's on her way to jail, or serious reprimanding.
While my prediction stands proven, I still feel all the same contempt I have always felt for her. She is simply an unstable person, maybe even one who warrants being in jail? It's obvious nothing has helped her so far, so maybe jail is the next obvious choice? It would straighten her out, for sure.
More than anything, I think this is another one of Lohan's patented cries for attention. She wants to grab the eyes of the world so she can play the holy martyr. Why else would a girl, who probably has at least a little money saved up, steal a petty little necklace? There really is no other explanation.
Lohan has been especially pitied because most of us remember her as the innocent star of The Parent Trap and other Disney cuties. But now the darling of the past has been replaced with the wanton Jezebel of the present. She is just going to keep on doing these little (or big) things until she gets the pity she needs. She will steal and cheat and lie and pillage others lives until she is filled to the brim with unneeded pity.
Too many of the people in the media still see her as a darling. But I can see past her veneer and see that she is a seriously unbalanced person. The quicker everyone realizes that she needs help, the quicker she'll get it. It's a simple matter of time though. I don't think she has much time left before she does something that is irrevocably horrible and will change her life forever, in the worst possible ways.
Lohan is a train speeding towards a broken track overlooking a mile-deep hole. Whether or not she, or her lawyers or family, will be able to stop the train, is uncertain. We'll just have to wait and see if we have a happy ending, or a bloodbath.
