Lindsay Lohan bound for trial after declining plea deal

Lindsay Lohan is not accepting a plea deal that would involve jail time for a jewelry store theft, CNN confirms.

The decision means the troubled actor will proceed to trial on a charge of felony grand theft.

The actress is accused of walking out with a $2,500 necklace from Kamofie and Company, a jewelry store in Venice, California, on January 22.

She faces possible jail time for violating her probation for a drunk driving arrest because of the theft charge.

Lohan's attorney notified Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers that there will be no court hearing Friday, a Los Angeles Court spokesperson said.

    The owner of the jewelry store tried to cash in with a book deal and to profit from this incident. So there is more to this story than simple theft. If could be extortion or revenge on the part of the owner of the store
