D.A. Decision on Lindsay This Week

2/2/2011 8:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. County District Attorney will decide this week whether Lindsay Lohan should be prosecuted for allegedly stealing a necklace from an L.A. jewelry store ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the case tell us the decision will come either Thursday or Friday.

We're told the D.A. is looking at several issues.  The main one ... did Lindsay have an intent to steal when she left the jewelry store with the $2,500 necklace.  Proving intent to steal is a central element of the crime.

Although several sources say a prosecution is likely, we're told no decision has been made ... yet.

The intent here was that Lindsay didn't intend to get caught stealing yet another piece of jewelry.

Considering how many times she has gotten caught you have to wonder how much stuff she's stolen and not gotten caught.

Even if TMZ makes it look as though she will get it right to the end, it looks this time she actually might, and this time I dont feel sorry for her.

I guess being in possession of stolen property isn't a crime, at least in California, anymore.

A DA is going to reject a celebrity case? Yeah right. Sorry Lindsay, you are going to be charged.

It's not Lindsay's intent that should be the question. If the store says she stole it, and she didn't pay for it, then she is a thief. Case closed. If it was a loaner deal and the store says she never returned it (until the police asked her to). She's still a thief (no matter who returns it). Mysterious case solved. You don't need Perry Mason for this one.

Seriously, California is a fvvcking joke, she won't see a day in jail. This is seriously what is wrong with this State or should I say country. Why should I pay taxes when people can just walk free of crimes?

Lindsay has no worries, this is the California justice system. In the land of California you can lie, steal, do drugs, drive drunk, anything goes with no consequences.

Lindsay Lohan made some amazing films, including Freaky Friday and Herbie, as well as several albums. She's still fabulous and she should be allowed to do whatever she wants!
