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.

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.

Posession is 9/10 of the law,if Lindsay took the necklace with the stores permission why didnt she return it to them instead of the police? (minutes before they were to execute a search warrant at her home) Sorry HoHan, where there's smoke there's fire and youre Cheech and Chong wrapped in to one.

me thinks that had TMZ not posted this story soon or later or perhaps already people on her would have been saying make the B!^#h take a lie detector test or she's guilty. and if the store owner drop the charges and said he set her up everyone would say she paid him off. or if anything else came out putting her in a good light you would find something wrong with that too.

Just outrageous. Shawn Chapman Holley KNOWS polygraphs aren't sound evidence.

Honestly, this just gets more and more ridiculous. The date dress, the flowers sent to the store she stole from, and now this. It's so far over the top it's unbelievable.

Breathing exercises, blood pressure meds (beta blockers), practice and your all good. Its all about controlling your heart rate and not getting flustered. The machines are basically bogus and dont work.

Lindsay Lohan has already been charged with felony grand theft for stealing the puniest $2,500 gold chain ever and she just showed up wearing a hot ho dress the color of her favorite fix.

Will White Oprah stop everything to scream "INJUSTICE!!!" before trying to hawk her new line of "curse a bitch out" nail decals including the now famous "**** U" and new ones like "Eat My C*nt" (Nana Lohan's personal favorite). Will LiLo recreate Sharon Stone's peek-a-cooch shot from Basic Instinct since she's sort of dressed like that? I really hope she does the latter and I really hope she's got "**** U" written in Sharpie on her labia.

To funny!

Will somebody please help me understand this. The judge revokes one of her other bonds for violation of probation. Then sets a new bond @ $20,000.00 for a new violation of probation plus $20,000.00 for the felony charge. How many violations of probation do you get in California before they say enough is enough? Here in florida, if you violate probation in any way there is no bond.Straight to jail untill your next court date. I thought the idea of probation was this:if you get sentenced for a crime that you have been found guilty of you either go to jail or the judge has the option to give you probation,usually for the lenght of time that you would have spent in jail. If at any time you violate this probation, for any reason, you go to jail and complete your sentence. No bail, on bond, no second chance. Lindsay has violated probation at least 6-10 times and is still not considered "in violation".I'm confused, how is this possible that she still is not concidered "in violation"?
I would also like to add that someone needs to slap that smirk right off her face.She's got "FU, can't lock ME up" written all over her face.Time and time again she makes a mockery out of the calf. judicial system.
Someone please help me understand how this girl is not locked up.
