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.

0202_lilo_EX_TMZ_04
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.

Can you just let it go. Is this what Hollywood and news is all about? A 24 year old gal caught up in the lime light of nothing.....Let her be. Pressure can lead up to drugs and alcohol..... let her be and find herself without pressure from the press....( get a different story press b4 you become the death of another victum)....Just sayin...

Shawn Chapman Holly had better just watch it as others have said. If and I think that is doubtful, but just if Lindsay Stinkpot gets off easy this time, she should be BLACKBALLED by every store in town. Refuse her any service, especially if she wants entrance to a jewelry store. Any other store should make sure she is followed and watched like a hawk every second she is there as well as anyone she is with or any stylist she sends on her behalf.

I can't imagine anyone ever wanting this thief to set foot in their home or store. It would be like inviting the Devil himself in. But, if you do,again she needs to be watched every second and you'd better lock your bedroom doors and hide any thing (even cheap) that might strike her fancy.

I foolishly met someone who gained my trust and allowed into my home. Months later, I'd go to look for something as simple as blush (makeup) and couldn't find it and thought I'd accidentally thrown it out. Same a few times later, same person who will never set foot in my home again!

I remember as a child growing up there was a family who lived across the street and the youngest girl was a klepto at age five or so. She would steal anything she could from whomever she could...packs of gum, etc. It took awhile after we noticed small items missing every time she was in our house, but then would hear other neighbors talking and this girl was the one who had just been wherever when whatever was discovered gone. As others have said, it is the thrill these sickos get....just like rapists rape not for the pleasure but whatever thrill they get from having control over their victim.

LL is one of the worst crooks though as she has a long history and a variety of crimes now and is well past the age of majority. It is obvious she has no remorse and a pattern of blaming innocent people.

Why would any store want this kind of negative publicity? Makes absolutely no sense and if anything, would turn off prospective shoppers so they have been doubly harmed (theft and negative publicity).

Venice Beach, CA is not the most exclusive either and there is lots of crime in these beach towns. I'd think ANY STORE, even the newsstands there, would take EXTRA SECURITY PRECAUTIONS due to the throngs of people that go there and the history of crimes in that town.

This is Hollywood and not the rest of the US. She walks out of court tomorrow with no lesson learned. Who cares about her anyway.

Let's see... She tries on necklace, then necklace is missing & video shows her wearing it on way out of store. Here is the omportant part: cops question LL who pleads innocent & suddenly necklace is sent to PD anonymously... Gee, who the heck sent it??

PUT THIS TRASH WHERE SHE BELONGS...IN THE JOINT FOR THE MAXIMUM SENTENCE! I AM SO SICK OF HER WALKING AWAY FROM EVERYTHING. SHE IS A MENACE TO SOCIETY. THE ULTIMATE LOW LIFE.

AND I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT HER AFTER THIS EPISODE EITHER. SHE HAS A FLAGRANT DISREGARD FOR LAW AND THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS. SHE DEFINITELY NEEDS TO PAY FOR HER CHRONIC VIOLATIONS OF LAWS OTHERS MUST ABIDE BY EVIL DEEDS.

LINDSAY IS A DRUNK, A JUNKIE, A THIEF (This is not her first theft if you recall) AND A TROUBLEMAKER. WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE SHE HAS GOTTEN AWAY WITH THAT THE PUBLIC HAS NOT FOUND OUT ABOUT?

There is something terribly wrong with this young woman. Trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes. We should not be too quick to judge. What if she was loaned this piece of jewelry and someone is just trying to fool the rest of us?

Man What is wrong with you people. There is love and there is a cry for love. If you don't know it, then think about it. Lindsay is a child actor and it obviously had an effect on her young adult life. If she ends up like Danna Plato it will be a real tragidy.
