Lindsay Lohan: I'm the Victim of a Witch Hunt

4/25/2011 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan believes prosecutor Danette Meyers is on a "witch hunt" against her, and is praying the Deputy D.A. makes good on what she asked the judge -- drop out of the case.

Sources in contact with Lindsay tell us ... Lindsay believes she's become a living, breathing press release for Meyers, who is running for L.A. County District Attorney.

There are several flaws in Lindsay's theory.  First, Meyers asked Judge Stephanie Sautner Friday to remove her from the case.  Since the judge knocked the felony charge down to a misdemeanor, Meyers assumed the case would be transferred to the L.A. City Attorney.  But the judge noted the D.A. can still prosecute the case if it wants to ... so Meyers' request was denied.

Second flaw -- Meyers has prosecuted hundreds of big cases in her more than 2 decades as a prosecutor, and is extremely well-respected, so she really doesn't need a misdemeanor theft case all that much.

Wait. It could be Danette is hot on the trail of a thieving witch. So the intellectually compromised Lohan could have accidentally stumbled on a point. Lohan is a witch. A self-involved, eternally juvenile witch. Grow up Lohan. You have a long string of sticky-finger actions. This isn't your first rodeo.

I was interested to see how Lohan's camp explained her walking out of the jewelry store with the necklace without paying. Before the preliminary hearing, we clearly heard "loan" from Dina. When lieing is an ill-advised option and perjury is at stake, the idea of a loan wasn't even entertained. Holley conceded that Lohan "did not rush to return the necklace," but she said it just "makes her not a very considerate or courteous person," but not a thief. "It's undisputed that Ms. Lohan walked out of the store with the necklace on," Holley said.

So "she forgot and is rude" is the strong, clear, reasonable doubt we've been hearing about? I realize Friday was just the preliminary hearing, but no doubt we would have some evidence of a loan if it existed. No thoughts of reasonable doubt are conjured up when I hear the explanation used on Friday.

Those who regularly defend and excuse Lindsay's behavior, what do you think? I often read in the TMZ comments that Ms. Holley would be able to easily win (I realize this was not the full trial but a preview of sorts), but did anyone see something Friday that tells them Lindsay did anything other than outright steal the necklace?

FUTMZ,
Wait for the greatest line of all: "So I thought as far as I knew that was in compliance. Had I not known, had I been taken aside and told that in detail, then that would have been a different story. I'm not taking this as a joke, it's my life."

Julie - you hit the nail on the head! Her own attorney didn't even try the "loan" defense, because she has some modi*** of respect for the courts and knows full well that it wasn't.

Her parents just tried to see if that spin would work on the public. And maybe Lindsay may have told SCH the truth about it not being a loan???

But, in all sincerity, if she mistakenly and by accident left with the necklace, she should know that the next day it was a priority to bring it back. When she didn't do that - she became a thief....period.

@ilovegossip
That is what i meant. The Judge said it could have been a felony because of Lindsay's past behavior and conduct but was giving her a chance and used her discretion to reduce the charge.
