Lindsay Lohan: Let Me Take A Lie Detector Test!

2/9/2011 11:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan offered to take a polygraph test to prove to the L.A. County District Attorney she did not steal the $2,500 necklace that triggered the felony grand theft charge ... but the D.A. refused.

Sources directly connected with the case tell TMZ ... when Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, met with prosecutors Danette Meyers and John Lynch last Monday, she told them Lindsay wanted to submit to a polygraph test -- to prove the necklace was given to her on loan and that she did not steal it.

We're told the prosecutors shot down the offer, because they didn't think polygraphs were scientifically sound.  They also believed there was a significant amount of evidence proving Lindsay did indeed pilfer the jewelry.

I find it funny that an ugly overpriced necklace - that resembles something Mrs. Roper would wear - is what brings this train wreck down. The skank can do blow and drive drunk, but swipe some costume jewelry and it's off to the pokie.

She's an idiot. Her parents are idiots too. If she has living grandparents, my guess is that they are also idiots.

Soap on a rope can be her next necklace.

Hey maybe she'll start a cat fight with someone - yep that'd be perfect. She's the Tonya Harding of Hollywood. Keep the stupid stories about her coming, TMZ. Love 'em. Keep the presses rolling 'cause any minute Michael and Dinah will text you their whereabouts. This is better than roller derby. Hope the porn people offer them a family show. Who needs Octomom.

from the Hollywood Life website:

“Lindsay needs to go to the Robert Downey Jr. school of rock bottom,” an insider close to Shawn Chapman Holley tells us

Lindsay Lohan’s legal woes are so numerous, it’s difficult to keep her arrests straight. Imagine trying to be her lawyer, constantly defending a girl who can’t seem to learn how to do the right thing, no matter how many chances she receives. Shawn Chapman Holley has been Lindsay’s lawyer since March 2009 and a source tells HollywoodLife.com she is sick and tired of Lindsay’s constant legal troubles.

“Shawn is in lawyer hell,” says a friend close to Holley, “Every time she thinks there is an end in sight with Lindsay, she gets a new case! This is someone who just wants to get out.”

And Holley isn’t just dealing with the legal side of Lindsay’s life like her new felony grand larceny charge and her probation being revoked, she also has to play family therapist! “Shawn spends all of her time on the phone with Lindsay and her family. She has to deal with the inhouse fighting between Michael and Dina. Multiple people are expressing their opinion. She has a very fine line of listening to what her client wants, and doing what is actually in her client’s best interest.”

Holley has a six-year-old daughter, and our insider says her days consist of dropping her child off at school and then rushing to deal with Lindsay all of the time. “She’s always putting out fires. She tries to have a celebratory drink every time she gets Lindsay to stay out of jail, and then the next day Lindsay’s breaking the law again! It’s a career-ruiner from a defense attorney’s point of view. She has no time for her other clients, and it is very challenging for her.”

So why is Holley sticking with Lindsay despite all of the stress? “She has an ethical responsibility not to abandon her client,” affirms our insider.

Holley briefly quit last July, but that didn’t last long. “When it comes down to it, Shawn’s done a great job for Lindsay. She hasn’t gone to jail yet. But at some point, the criminal justice system stops trying to rehabilitate you and starts to punish you. I’d be very surprised if she doesn’t get [jail] time. Maybe that will be good for her. She needs to go to the Robert Downey Jr. school of rock bottom!” asserts our source, alluding to RDJ’s felony conviction which eventually led him to turn his life around.

Eek! Sounds like poor Shawn Chapman Holley has quite the handful with Lindsay. Do you feel sorry for Holley?

Lindsey always visits this shop and always is asking the owner to allow her to wear the jewelry to help the shop out like I get to wear it and it will help to sell it! The owner each time has said yes here are the papers you must fill out. Lindsey would decline and say next time I am in we will do this. But she goes in and out all the time and she asks all the time, they want her to do it but they want to get insurance against lost, damage, etc and mostly they want Lindsey to purchase! A conversation about loaning you with complete do***entation is not permission for you to walk out with it.

Nice try, Princess.

Your attorney should have told you the results are not admissible in court.

Epic fail...............................

Lindsay actually believes her own lies, so she probably would pass a lie detector test!

You use a bail bondsman for one of two reasons.

1. Broke
2. Flight risk

which one is she?

Results in California are admissible if both sides consent to the test. Prosecutors never take the bait if they have the perp with solid evidence because the tests are beatable with a little bit of coaching and blood pressure medication (beta blockers). Its a no win situation when you have them dead to rights like they have Lilo, so this is just bogus PR. Its 0 delta they would ever let the test happen to any defendant.
