2/5/2011 8:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer swears LiLo is innocent -- and is ready to do battle in court if it comes to that.

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.

It's not likely, but suppose the "information" about her pending charges is an attempt to find a leak. Monday the DA says we haven't read the file yet but we fed that info to 3 or 4 people and now there is an investigation into who leaked the info.
It is a little strange that someone told Lindsay about the search warrant and someone told TMZ about what charges will be filed.
Lindsay and SCH could have been told to play along, SCH to say they will fight this and Lindsay to basically keep her mouth shut.
Finding out who the "sources" is would make really juicy fodder for the press and cover the ass of the DA and sheriff for these screw ups.

Why is the media so fascinated with this girl's every move? Creeeepy. The Today show was talking about it...? Anyway, why was she able to walk right out of the jewelry store without anyone stopping her? I would think there would be some security somewhere that could have gone after her the minute she left the store. Doesn't make sense.

I don't understand what Lindsay is thinking whatsoever! She is missing judgment completely. WHEN, if ever, will she learn? She has addiction problems that are not just alcohol and drugs, but theft too. Didn't she steal a fur coat, other jewelry, including a watch? She takes the term "sense of entitlement" to a whole other level. Many other reports of clothing and other items go missing when she does a photo shoot. She can not cope with real life and can't grasp "right" and "wrong". I'd hoped she'd really turn things around this time. To top it off her so-called "concern" for Charlie Sheen is just a total joke! Wash your own hands before you start pointing fingers~

One think people need to understand about many shoplifters... it is NOT a matter of "NEED" but a matter of the "EXCITEMENT" of getting away with it. Many shoplifters have the money to pay for the item but are looking for the "thrill". It would not surprise me at all if Lindsay is a shoplifter.

Why the hell is she "borrowing" a necklace anyway?

This woman is a complete disaster. I've had a lot of
sympathy for her over the years, but enough is enough. Drunks, drug addicts and others with personality disorders need to hit bottom before they can start back up. She appears to be bottomless. Maybe she should just walk off a cliff and save herself a lifetime of grief.

I'm still trying to reconcile the image of this cute little somewhat nerdy redheaded freckled face little girl with what she is now. What the hell happened.

Wow. It's going to cost alot more than $2,500 to defend this case. Personally I am sick of Lindsay Lohan. I hope they lock her up so we don't have to see her for about 3 years. Her sense of entitlement is amazing. She should pay for this crime (you and I would have to, so why not her?)

Hilarious - the last thing on Earth Lindsay is, is innocent. You do not get dressed and put on a necklace that you know damn well you have not paid for. She is delusional enough to believe that was entitled to wear it though, because she probably already head this whole "I borrowed it" story in her mind, just in case the issue came up.
Sociopath - look it up - she fits the description to a T. They need to a put a picture of Lindsay in the dictionary next to Sociopath.

Idiot!    

2 things:

1) WH*REhan is an habitual liar It doesn't matter what she says, because it's all BS; what matters is what the evidence shows. WH*REhan was caught on camera with the necklace, she has already admitted that she took it, she didn't do any paperwork ("I don't do paperwork" - what a braindead excuse), the jewelry owner has already filed a complaint that the jewelry was taken without her permission and dumbass wh*rehan was photographed with the necklace on & had one of her "camp" return it to the police. It's easy to connect the dots here; she's caught dead to rights & her lame excuse ain't gonna fly here.

2) WH*REhan does not deserve Shawn Holley. Her reputation is that of an honest attorney who fights for her clients. Shawn is working the publicity angle, but she's beating a dead horse. WH*REhan is guilty and is going to jail.

Would TMZ stay in "bizness" if it weren't for Charlie, Lindsay, Mel and Oksana?
