TMZ obtained a statement from Shawn Chapman Holley that reads, "We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press."

As we first reported, Lindsay will be charged with felony grand theft as early as Monday for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, CA jewelry store.

She faces a maximum of three years in prison if convicted.

the world will just end up laughing their a**es off at the US justice system again. May Lindsay, her F'ed up parents and SCH burn in hell.

They will never be able to make anything stick on this loser. It makes me sick.

The video from the store and no written "loan" agreement will mean that LL is heading to San Quentin Prison for a few years.

Shoplifting is shoplifting and Lohan is heading for more time behind bars.

Necklace missing from store and not purchased or paid for. Necklace on video being shown to Lohan.
Necklace on Lohan's neck in pic's taken days after they were out of the store.
No paperwork of loan filed at store.

I wouldn't want Shawn Chapman Holley's job for all the money in the world.

She tried to quit as Lindsay's lawyer before and the judge wouldn't let her.

Of course she's going to say that her client is innocent.... that's what defense lawyers are supposed to do. I don't blame Shawn for anything... but .... good heavens... can you imagine being forced to have Lindsay as a client????? I wouldn't wish that on anyone......

@Nicole

Whose idea was it to send flowers to the shop? Isn't that illegal?

Lindsay isn't innocent, far from it, and this time she's going down...her lawyer is just doing her job, plain and simple. Yet, you gotta wonder how tired she is of this trash.

But I know something you don't know...NO WAY she beats this.

Lohan wont move to New York since she wont get the same treatment that the LA County Jail provides where the sentence is automatically reduced by 95%.

However, this is a felony. Lohan should play Johnny Cash's albums "Live from San Quentin" and "Live form Folsom State Prison" to understand where her next concert will be held.
