Lindsay's Jeweler

Shops Book Deal!

3/16/2011 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The jewelry store that was allegedly victimized by Lindsay Lohan has been shopping a book deal ... TMZ has learned ... and it's becoming a nightmare for prosecutors.

0316_KAMOFIE_BOOX_EX2
The publicist for Kamofie & Co. contacted Sharlene Martin, a literary agent, early last week and said his client -- the owners of Kamofie -- wanted to do a book deal.  Martin told the agent the necklace incident "was a moment, not a book."

Martin, who specializes in crime-related books, told the publicist, "You shouldn't waste any literary agent's time.  Call the Enquirer if you want."

Kamofie has already sold the surveillance video, and the latest effort makes the victim look so mercenary, it could jeopardize the prosecutor's case.

UPDATE: A rep for Kamofie & Co. tells us, "We have no book deal pending."

@141 FUTMZ how is Lindsay going to be a felon? There's no way in hell 10 out of 12 jurors are going to vote guilty on this weak case!

If she doesn't accept the plea deal, she'll take it to trial and Ms. Holley will have to try to "explain", unless Lindsay herself wants to take the stand.

-------------------

Ms. Holley can try to explain, but will anybody believe her without any evidence to support her explanation? Normally, the answer would be no.

The only way to produce evidence to support the explanation will be for Lohan to take the stand. Then we'll all get to see how good an actress she really is. We'll also get to see how she can resolve all of the inconsistent explanations that have been floated.

Because of the celebrity factor, the chance of getting one or more jurors to vote not guilty is high, regardless of the facts. That the defense is even thinking of a plea bargain is an indication that they do not have confidence in Lohan's ability to testify in a believable manner.

Heck, if a California jury can let off Phil Spector (the first time around anyway) - who knows how they will vote if Lindsay goes to trial. Phil had a history of waving guns at women and that info was allowed in at trial, and he still got off. California jurors just have a hard time convicting celebs it seems.

How is the case weak?

We know two facts:

1) Lohan had possession of the necklace out of the store
2) The store says Lohan did not have permission to take the necklace out of the store.

In any other case, those two facts would be enough to convict Lohan. Any evidence on top of those two facts is unnecessary icing on the cake.

Kamofie has caught on to the Lohan trick of having shills post things on the web putting Lindsay in a favorable light and making lies up about the store.
They are covertly doing exactly the same to blunt the Loans’. Kamofie has set up a large bank of laptops, and the shills sitting at them post bad things about Lindsay constantly. Their posts are often vile and spaced out throuhgh time. Lindsay’s father is reviled in every possible way. Her mother is accused of being a drugged out wannabe star pushing Lindsay to produce money.
To an outsider, reading this blog about Lindsay seems like a tragic opera!

I think she is an object of pity. She has been troubled for a very long time, and is seriously mentally ill. She can function reasonably in a limited environment but her thought process does not work too well.

What’s going too happed? Time will tell but you can bet the opera will sing again!

"California jurors just have a hard time convicting celebs it seems."


That is definitely true. I don't that that you can reasonably argue that the case is weak, or that whatever actions the store has taken have any impact on Lohan's guilt. However, you certainly can say that there is a significant probability that a jury will find her not guilty regardless of how much evidence there is against her. The only question is whether she wants to take that risk. I'm not sure who her fan base is right now, but the odds are her fans are pretty young, and don't serve on juries.

@john smith
Please take it to trial. I would love to see it. It doesn't matter if you believe your own lies or are just trying to sway public opinion, the bottom line is she is going to jail.

@American, #113: "This is the typical Jewish response when provoked. It's okay for Jews like Gottfried, Limbaugh, Sulkin, and Kudlow to mock other nation."

"American", you're not really American, you're a hemorrhoid, AKA a pain in the ass. You represent everything this country does not stand for. You're just another ignorant, stupid, dirty, racist dumbass. Even in a post about Lindsay Lohan who is not Jewish, and in a story that has nothing to do with Jews, you have to go on a rant about the Jews. You're pure s-c-u-m, mentally deranged and intellectually incapacitated too. Have a nice day, dumbass!

FYI ALL:
WHAT YOU SAW ON ET AND THE INSIDER AND THE INTRENET DID NOT SHOW WHAT THE DA HAS, THE VIDEO THAT HIT THE INTERNET WAS CUT

IF LINDSAY LOHAN GOES TO TRIAL THE REAL VIDEO WILL BE RELEASED, THATS WHY DINA LOHAN IS FLIPPING OUT ON THE STORE

THE PUBLIC DID NOT SEE THE WHOLE VIDEO AND HOW LINDSAY STOLE THE NECKLACE

YOU ALL ARE FORGETTING THE REPORTS HOW PATRICK DISTRACTED THE SALES GIRL, AND THATS HOW LINDSAY STOLE THE NECKLACE..ET DIDNT SHOW THAT NOW DID THEY?? THEY ONLY SHOWED WHAT WAS LEGAL TO SHOW

EVER HEAR SH*TS GONNA HIT THE FAN, WELL ITS GOING TO

STAY TUNED FOLKS!

The actions of the store make Lilo's story more plausible all the time. It is a fact that stores like this lend and or give celebrities stuff all the time for the free publicity. Why they decided to turn it into a theft this time is beyond reason. All they had to do i call her people and get the necklace back. She was a frequent customer.

Given Lilo's past trouble, it is not surprising that one of her people panicked and turn the necklace into police. Heck, I am not even a lawyer, and I could still get this tossed. And, if I were on a jury, I would be laughing every time the prosecutor spoke. I guess they DA's out there are as big a media whores as everybody else.

Luv U Nikki.

The Lohans have become quite tiresome. None of this changes ANYTHING. There's more negative info to come on Lindsay. That's how TMZ does it. Something seemingly in her favor today, tomorrow or the next day....bombshell.

California juries have found OJ and Robert Blake not guilty. So, if Holley can make a case that the store lent the necklace to LiLo and now tried to profit on the incident by selling the videotape and the story for a book deal, LiLo might just get off. Who knows. She might just get off in prison too.

If she really didn't steal it and was given permission to borrow it by someone working for the store, why should she take the plea deal? Many people refuse to take plea deals and prefer to fight the charges in court because they stand for the principle that they didn't do the crime. There's a good chance at least 1 of the jurors at trial, if it's a jury trial, won't believe she did it beyond a reasonable doubt.
