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.

Agreed. The store just wants some free press and Lindsay is innocent.

"Lindsay doesn't understand how the store can file a police report when they let her borrow the necklace," said a source close to the actress. "She's used to getting gifted items that are worth way more than that. And why would she steal a necklace? She has tons of jewelry and doesn't need anymore."

If she is really worried why didn't she take the store $2500 when all this came up. Stop making excuses for her dad of the yr.

Reviewing Winona Ryder's case, Lindsay will get at least probation and community service. However, because Lindsay has both a past history of the same behavior, and several failed attempts at rehabilitation, she will most likely get prison time.

Too bad, Lohans.

ryder did not have an extensive criminal past like liho so it will make alot of diff in sentencing.she will most deff get time of some kind if found guilty.i believe this would also be a jury if it goes to trial,if there is no plea bargaining.her past is most certainly never going to be an asset any time she steps in court.

"Yes, hello, is this San Quentin? Yes, well, this is Lindsay Lohan. Yes, THAT one. Can you connect me to reservations? What, you don't have a reservations extension?! How about the concierge then? WTF?!? What kind of prison is this!! Don't you know who I am? Yes, I realize I haven't been in any good movies in years. Well, anyhow, I'd like to book a room with a view, a smoking room and do you have room service...? Hello... hello..."

I have a solution.

Lindsay could offer to supervise Charlie Sheen's in-house rehab.

I can tell you how many times I've gone into a store and left with a $2500 item for free. ZERO. It just doesn't happen! This is not a mis-understanding. It's called STEALING.

@Paranormal Investigator

T.I is a SEVEN time felon.
Since May Lindsay hasn't been allowed to leave LA due to the injustice of July 6th which was a setup for another VOP.

Lohan's camp is maintaining that she is absolutely innocent.

"We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press," Lohan's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley told TMZ in a statement.

Furthermore, sources close to the troubled star told us she still isn't upset by the hoopla and is used to being "taken advantage of" by people and companies for the sake of PR.

"This whole story is crazy. $2500 is tip money to Lindsay, if she wanted the necklace that badly she would have bought it," said our insider. "She's going to get to the bottom of this - it wasn't stolen."

It's really sick, Lindsey, Charlie and Mel can do whatever they want. Never go to jail. Is there really a criminal justice system. Not for them. She stole so many things before this, keeps paying off people. Parents you are now killig your daughter.
