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.

I love the comment, "we are going to fight this in court and not in the media". Does she realize a statement doesn't need to be released? If charged, of course she is going to fight it in court. That is where you fight charges. No press release needed. It is impossible for Lilo or anyone associated with her to stay away from the media. What a joke!

say what?    

How could she just walk out with this necklace without the employees not knowing? Don't the employees have to take the necklace out of the display case?

How she is not embarrassed to even show her face is beyond me....This woman truly has no shame. No wonder the general public concensus is that of a whopping "no go" for Lindsay. No one likes her anymore. Her attitude is sickening, along with her morals, and her face. She ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTS ME. That is all.

When you go to a store you know what you are doing. She intentionally put on that necklace and walked out with it. To wear it a few days later when the PAPs are hanging all over you, the reality is she wanted to get caught. The fact that her assistant took the 'necklace' to the police after it was discovered that the store owner was going to press charges, speaks volumes! She knows she screwed up her probation. I would suspect that Judge Fox is going to be less lenient this time around, especially when all the evidence mounts up against her and she knows this. This is an interesting turn for someone whom claims that they are rehabilitated when in actuality she is not, she just turned to another vice since she cannot do drugs or alcohol. Have seen this time and time again.

The necklace accidentally flew across the store and landed around Lindsay's neck. Somebody set her up.

Here's the deal. It's obvious she stole it. Just suck up Lindsay, quit thinking you are entitled, tell them it's when you were really messed up getting high all the time. You will walk.

But don't play these little entitlement games. Everyone knows you are full of **** and are a pathological liar. Not hard to figure out.

@Areader
Yes Shawn has defended OJ, The Game, Sara Olson
Shawn will win this case and Lindsay will beat this.

@Paranormal Investigator
WRONG
If charges are filed Lindsay will have a different Judge not Fox or the recused Judge as it will place at Airport court.

The only person happy and pumped about this is LL's lawyer.

She will get what is left of Lindsay's fortune.

Shawn is a cheerleader at a game with nobody present. Her client has stepped so far over the edge, there is no pulling her back in.
