Hey TMZ..there is a show that was aired a few years back showing lindsay's bedroom, house etc. She had all of her accessories in a box. It wasn't a small collection, so shes had accessories since she became a star. I don't think she stole any of those items, she made a lot of money so why would she not be able to afford these? $2500 is pocket change to her. As much as we like to hate lindsay lohan and percieve that her life is spinning out of control, i think shes innocent on this charge. Poor girl just leave her a lone.

Wonder what 'loop hole' Holley will find to get her out of this mess.

Lindsay's handful of "second chances" seem to be finally slipping through her fingers. I really don't see her being able to wiggle her way out of this one . . .

GOOD LUCK ! ! !

Leave her alone? The drama queen couldn't stand for that. In fact she probably stole the necklace because she was pissed that TMZ was giving more space to Charlie than to her.

What's more disgusting than the theft itself,is the Lohan's sit here at TMZ all day fighting public opinion.When in fact Lindsay's falling apart again.

Another thing more disgusting is they are blaming the victims of the theft,and once again blaming others for Lindsay's screwups.

Beleive me..they won't slander that jewelry store in court,only at TMZ where the Lohan's use alias handles.

Lindsay's defense is defenseless.

Well Nicole..so much for your countdown.
