Lindsay Lohan -- Ready to Fight Charges

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.

Holy crap, you are so delusional it's not even borderline ludicrous. You are just a sad, pathetic woman who is living a sad, pathetic life who has a equally sad pathetic daughter.

If convicted with the mountain of evidence against her she'll go to Calif's Valley State Prison for Women in Chowchilla where there would be no early release due to overcrowding. County jail is a picnic compared to prison, she stupidly didn't get her act together and now it's too late. But she'll make lots of new friends with fellow criminals who also can't follow society's rules. :)

Lohan still expects whatever she does Holley will make it all go away.

This is not milking probation stipulations dry and back to rehab. This is whole different ballgame.

Lohan has walked away with so much jewelry, so many times, I'm surprised she hasn't been brought up on felony charges already. If the owner doesn't give you permission, it's not borrowing, it's stealing. And the owner says it was stolen, filed a police report the same day. Good luck, Shawn, honey, but this time, you may not be able to get this little klepto junkie off the hook.

If anyone wants a good laugh just go back and watch the tape of her crying to the judge the last time she was in court and saying seriously she was taking this...real funny. Her issues are even bigger than going to jail can solve.

from what i understand about this case, there is not enough evidence to actually get a JURY to convict her of WILLFULLY stealing the necklace. in order to be convicted, 12 people must agree that she was fully responsible for walking into the store, personally reaching across the counter without assistance from staff, and stealing the necklace. i believe there is more to it than than. i'm not taking sides with Linsay, but the prosecutors need to drop the case or risk having the legal system look like a joke. there's just too much grey area here...it comes down to OVERWHELMING evidence, which there is not here.

Hey judge..this time make sure an ankle bracelet is welded to her ankle for 3 more years,besides the 90 days in jail for the violation.She can learn,but you in the court system are gonna have to try a little harder when it comes to Lindsay.

You're right about this family.They sure have some serious issues.

Good luck Lindsay in court..:)

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!

Does anyone have any idea how this girl affords $7500 a month apartment, along with all other expenses.Rehab at Betty Ford is not cheap.I can't imagine what her legal bills with top lawyer are. Where does the money come from?

Miss Lohan could walk out in the middle of Sunset Blvd. at the height of rush hour, pull out a gun and shoot someone right in the face with 1,000 witnesses and maybe, just maybe get 30 days probation. She may even do something like that to seek the attention that she so loves and to prove she is untouchable. I'm simply amazed at the legal system, just amazed...

We all know she is guilty. Enough of these games already. If the system lets her go free then we will know for sure that justice for the rich and justice for the poor are way different.

Money talks and rich celebs always seem to walk.
