Lindsay Lohan will soon be tried for grand theft. But you know who SHOULD be? Kamofle & Co. They marked that necklace up 300 percent! Highway robbery!
The necklace piece Linds is accused of bogarting from Kamofie & Co. has been appraised at $850. Legally, this could actually be a significant sum.
That price tag does not qualify for felony grand theft, which requires a value of $950 or more. Kamofie was trying to sell the necklace to Lindsay for $2,500.
Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, will argue the D.A. should only be allowed to charge her client with a misdemeanor, based on the true value of the necklace.
But even if Holley loses that argument, Kamofie's owner already lost.
After all, everyone knows jewelers mark stuff up, but 300 percent? That's going to be a PR problem. Not to mention her selling the surveillance video.
It's hard to make an ungrateful and unprofessional brat like LiLo look like a victim or a sympathetic figure, but they have. Well, almost.
