Watch the raw video of actress Lindsey Lohan arriving in court and appearing before a judge. The judge told Lohan that entering a plea of guilty for a felony grand theft charge would result in jail time.
The Skanner News Video: Lohan in Court
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz tersely told the troubled starlet what she could expect if she pleaded guilty or no contest in the felony case.
"If you plead in front of me, if this case is resolved in front of me, you are going to jail," Schwartz said. "Period."
The "Mean Girls" star wore high-waisted white pants and a low-cut black top, and sat reading papers while prosecutors offered her attorney, Shawn Holley, the terms of the plea deal in a close chambers meeting with Schwartz. The details were not immediately released, but Schwartz said he didn't think Lohan would take offer. She has pleaded not guilty.
Lohan told the judge she understood, and left the courtroom clutching her mother's hand. She and her attorney left without speaking, but her father, Michael Lohan, told reporters outside the courthouse that the case is being over-prosecuted.
"I don't see Lindsay as a criminal," he said. "This is all a result of her addiction."
The necklace case has become the latest trouble for Lohan, who was sent to jail twice and rehab twice last year for violating her probation in a 2007 drunken driving case. Run-ins with the law could land her back in jail, yet the troubled starlet seems to keep running into trouble.
