Lindsay D.A.:

Selling Surveillance Tape

Means Nothing

3/31/2011 4:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The prosecutor in the Lindsay Lohan case tells TMZ ... the fact that the alleged victim/jeweler may be selling views of the surveillance video online will have no bearing on the criminal trial.

Danette Meyers tells TMZ ...she isn't fazed by Kamofie & Company purportedly selling views of the video for $2.99 a pop.

Meyers says, "The issue is whether Lindsay stole the necklace, period."

Meyers believes the defense will try and take advantage of the online sale, but she says, "That will just add around 30 minutes to cross examination.  That's it."

Meyers doesn't think the jewelers' credibility will be harmed by the $2.99 deal.  Lindsay has said the necklace was a loan and she didn't steal it.  Meyers says it gets back to the issue, If she didn't steal it, "Why then did Lindsay return the necklace to the police?"

And sources say the owners of Kamofie & Company "got a raw deal" and haven't seen a penny of profits from the sale of the video, at least not yet.  The sources say the owners were taken advantage of, and the contracts they made for the sale of the tape are now being reviewed by lawyers.

Lindsay is a spoiled sociopathic nut job and DA Meyers will take her and her violent psychopathic father down. Its time to lock these Lohans up.

In the recent photos of Lindsay falling clearly drunk at a bar as god knows what time in the AM, she looks like a 40 year old hooker looking for her next fix.

I agree with your earlier stories that she should have taken the plea deal. It seems likely now that she will go to prison, unless some miracle happens in court.

Good riddance!    

"the fact that the alleged victim/jeweler may be selling views of the surveillance video online will have no bearing on the criminal trial."

And it today's 'More Good News If Your Last Name Isn't Lohan Category', it sounds like the prosecutor has nothing to worry about when it comes to nailing shut this case!

Meanwhile, Stickyhans is probably just now waking up in her usual position of her head in a toilet.

GO DANETTE!!!

Of course, the only people who believed it hurt the store's reputation are:

- Nicole
- therock
- John Smith
- FriedofLindsay
- Pony Princess
- Susan
- Delmar
- Puckett

Everyone that wasn't a member of the Trollhan Tribe knew this was just TMZ stirring the pot, but few cared.

#6, I have news for you: "Fazed" is indeed a word, look it up.

As a prosecutor, I would be more concerned with the sale of the surveillance tape being looked upon as tainting a jury pool than somehow undermining the credibility of the jeweler. I don't know WHY they sold it, but it either supports their allegation of her stealing or it doesn't.

On the other hand, it could be argued that Lohan turned the necklace over to the police simply because it became evidence and its ownership was in question.

If she has any proof that there was a legitimate sales or loaner transaction, let her produce it.

You'd think they might have had their lawyer look at the contract BEFORE signing it.

I think Lindsay did steal the necklace, but I've been inside that jewelry store and it hardly has the look or feel of a fine jeweler that will be around for years. It is in a shop with a concrete floor that looks like an old warehouse. The jewelry is intended for hippies, not for high end clients.
