Lindsay Lohan Formally Charged With Felony Theft, Taken Into Custody, Berated By Judge

by at . Comments

As predicted, troubled star Lindsay Lohan was formally charged with a felony count of grand theft after allegedly bogarting a necklace from a jewelry store.

She's publicly denied it, and while that means little to us - she denies responsibility for everything - it all but guaranteed her plea of not guilty in court today.

The judge set bail at $20,000, which Lohan came prepared for and will likely post soon to secure her release. She's been around the block a time or two.

Lindsay Lohan is Back in Court

At least Lindsay Lohan arrived dressed to impress!

If convicted in the Venice, Calif., banditry, she could face three years in prison. Her history of thievery and other nonsense was a big reason charges were filed.

Lindsay Lohan has been remanded into custody after the judge gave her a stern admonishment, telling the train wreck "please don't push your luck."

The judge came down on her like a ton of bricks ... telling her "things will be different" this time and not to act like she's different than anyone else.

Judge Keith Schwartz said Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, and prosecutor Danette Meyers, would meet to possibly reach a plea bargain.

For now, she stands accused of the felony, however, and has been warned: "If you violate the law, I will remand you and there will be NO BAIL."

The judge also revoked Lindsay's probation in the DUI case and set bail at $20,000 for that as well, so total bail for her latest disaster is $40,000.

Lohan was also ordered to refrain from contacting the jewelry store during the case. Lindsay has already posted the bail and will soon be free.

Further updates to follow ...

It's a really sad state of affairs. I support Dr. Drew in his efforts to encourage her. I am very saddened that it will result in no bail, for she truly needs counseling so that she will not repeat this behavior any more. She's very in need of attention, apparently, and she got it, even though it is negative. She's in front of our eyes once again. I hope she can get in a rehab center and stick to the treatment.

For the life of me, I don't understand what makes LL tick?
I guess any (negative) publicity is better than none at all !!

MJ brought the old trend back. If you are famous you have to wear sunglasses 24/7.

excuse me idiot celebrity worshippers, but there is such a thing known as "reality". Lohan does not know what it is. . . she continually feels that she is in Oz with the scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man.
How many times would you appear in front of a judge until you realized that something was seriously wrong in your life??? Lohan, Hilton, and the rest of the media whores from hollywood apparently feel that they are not ordinary like you and I, but are exempt from the rules and regulations that we must follow.
Felony theft is felony theft. It is not a "mistake" or a "misunderstanding" that only celebrities can claim. 3 years in a islolated women's prison camp, where the media cannot come into play, where reality of being with criminals, some hard-core, will put the fear of god back into her life.

Just another reason to send her to jail for at least ten years. She nothing but low class trailer trash!

What that judge said to her was totally gratuitous. Just treat her like everyone else. No need to single her out at an *arraignment* for some kind of sentencing phrase style speech. Also, the judge sounds pretty inarticulate. Now, while LL is probably guilty, it doesn't help that these idiotic, envious people, from the store down to the judge will have adjudicated her. It's a felony because of the amount of the item taken, not because it was some kind of aggravated incident. Jail time would be funny, but probably way too harsh.

Ouch, you are all stalkers (I suspect jealous of what she has). She messed up and messed up badly (real badly) but what if people were watching you 24/7 and there are all kinds of freaks just waiting for her to trip. That is not a great life they lead. The more I see Hollywood the more I'm glad I'm in GEORGIA. Now, you all give this girl a break, she is scared, and has no real role models or support. Step in shoes for a week & see how you judge. Even the best fall down sometimes.
