Lindsay Lohan to be charged with necklace theft

Actress Lindsay Lohan will be charged Wednesday with felony grand theft relating to a necklace allegedly taken from a Venice, California, jewelry store last month, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Lohan, 24, will be arraigned on the charge at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Los Angeles Airport Superior Court, Deputy District Attorney John Lynch said.

The actress "allegedly walked out of the store with the necklace on January 22," a statement from the district attorney's office said. "The owner reported the theft to the Los Angeles Police Department, which investigated the
allegation and presented evidence to the D.A.'s office last week."

The necklace, which is valued at $2,500, was handed over to police just before they were to execute a search warrant to look for the jewelry in Lohan's Venice, California, apartment last week.

Lohan was already on supervised probation stemming from probation violations related to a 2007 drunk driving conviction.

    This is only news since she has yet to be punished for any previous crime. Chances are she wont be punished for this. Proof the judges in L.A. are poor examples for judges everywhere.

    This is what happens to young girls when they are given "gifts" at a young age in exchange for adult favors. I blame the parents.

    and the judge warned her not to break the law again - and again and again and again and again - ad nauseum.

    if it was you or me, we would be in jail.

    ah - justice for the rich and famous....

    The very best thing that can happen to this girl at this point is to put her jail for 6 months to a year. She has been given all the breaks and nothing has worked. She needs to be taken away from the environment that supports her poor habits.Regretably that includes her pathetic family.
