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.

In your dreams! the judge never said the full 180 days he said 180 days knowing that would be about 23 in LA.

Revoking someones probation because of an allegation is not going to happen! It will be extended and revoked if she is found guilty. The time will be concurrent with the time for the theft.

I think they loaned her the necklace and then said she stole it so that their company could get maximum press. Lindsey's problem, however, is that white people don't just like seeing you down. They go for the jugular. Then, after they've done all they can to you, you go to jail, get out and make amends, they will all get on t.v and tell everyone how you learned your lesson and that now you are a good person. think michael vick.

I think they loaned her the necklace and then said she stole the thing so that they could get maximum coverage of their store. Lindsey's problem, however, stems from the fact that when you're down, white people don't just like seeing you down, they go for the jugular. Think Michael VICK. You're white, my dear. You should know that.

She's a common thief and washed up in Hollywood... who would put her in a top movie with those silly-looking lips and alcoholic pallor & puffiness? And who would trust her to not steal everything off the set, lol.

@SayWhat ... plenty of those over priced little boutique style stores let their rich and/or famous clientele try on stuff, walk around the store wearing stuff while looking at more stuff. Many places like this cater to stars and the wealthy. They don't expect the wealthy to actually walk off without returning, taking off or buying the item.

Also, she sucks at acting, she looks horrible and she can't dress to save her life. She is about as dumb as it gets. A year ago or so she lifted some girl's sable mink and was seen wearing it days later. She returned it and charges were dropped. Ok..so lets put this in perspective. She's a drug user, alcoholic, thief and liar. Great resume Lindsay!!! you qualify for San Quentin. See ya!

I just don't get why Lindsay can't get it together so her lawyers aren't constantly "vehemently denying" things on her behalf. This seems to go beyond immaturity and a sense of entitlement. Are there mental issues at play?

What Shawn is saying is, we haven't said anything so far, not Lindsay, not Shawn. They will fight this in the court unlike the store owners who are talking to anyone who will listen Thats fine by me, GO SHAWN!

Susan/Dina,
if Linds is not saying anything how is that we know that she already said she doesn't do paperwork, her handler takes care of that?

Spot I don't know how they do things in California, but T.I.'s probation was revoked over an allegation. He was never even charged for the California crimes.
