Lindsay to Plead No Contest to Theft

4/30/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan will plead no contest to the misdemeanor theft charge she faces over that pesky necklace ... sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

We're told Lindsay is committed to what she told Jay Leno this week -- that she wants to accept responsibility and move on with her life.

So Lindsay and her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will go back to Judge Stephanie Sautner as early as next week to enter the plea. 

Lindsay has already been sentenced to 120 days in jail for the probation violation, along with 480 hours of community service. Sources tell us Lindsay and her lawyer are banking on Judge Sautner not adding additional time on the theft charge. In other words, when Lindsay serves her 120-day sentence, that would be the end of it.  And sources familiar with the case say that would be a routine disposition.

L.A. County Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ his rough calculation is that Lindsay would serve three weeks, although there are variables to that.

We're also told the L.A. County District Attorney is inclined to give the case to the L.A. City Attorney, since the D.A. typically prosecutes felonies and the case is now a misdemeanor.  But now that Lindsay will plead no contest, it doesn't make a lot of sense for the D.A. to kick the case to the City Attorney.

Holley could not be reached for comment.

@nicole...let's get our facts straight before you post:

Lohan's lawyer Shawn Holley and Kaman got testy at times during the hearing. At one point, Holley noted that Lohan was baring a lot of cleavage that day and questioned why Kaman didn't notice the necklace dangling above it.

"I wasn't looking at her chest," Kaman said. "I was looking at her face."

Judge Sautner warned both Kaman and Holley to be more respectful.

@jwoolman @ketjo
I don't know what caused the Judge to tell Shawn to be more respectful.

Access Hollywood:
Holley asks Caman about Lohan’s hair on the day she visited the store, saying she wore it in a bun. Caman describes it as a “sloppy bun.” Lindsay reacts to Caman’s description by looking back at members of the press. The judge asks Caman to be respectful.

jwoolman, beautiful eliquent response. And you are correct TMZ (and as far as I know no other) news agency tweets or phones from the courtroom. With all due respect for Nicole, this is just a usual tactic for the Lowhand enablers.

LOL Sean has discovered sarcasm!
I know why your stupid (red wing fan) but you should read seans home page if you think he doesn't know what sarcasm is (but you most likely already did).I spent 5 hours looking at it and he has a perspective i dig and greatly APPRECIATE.I also SEE things not totally apparent to internet trolls and the no it all "counselors" and "lawyers" and crippled elderly pregnant hags on tmz waiting around for their welfare checks and their pets to croak.

As ilovegossip already pointed out, how awesomely ironic is this comment? Seriously Seeker? Do you not see it? It's as blatant as Lindsay's guilt.

It's also ironic when people accuse others of stupidity with such glaring grammatical errors. It's also hysterically funny.

Seeker there are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.

Your conspiracy theories are just silly. We're talking about Lindsay Lohan here. She's not important enough for this sort of obsession. You're going a little overboard aren't you?

I only think of stealing and addiction when i see lindsay lohan. Her playing a different character, and me believing that character is going to be impossible.

She's suppose to be reporting to womens center to WORK not use it as a photo and publicity stunt...but know doubt the Lohans will have the paps standing at the door to photo all of her fake smiles......

She's like a chigger that gets under you skin and even after scatching the dam thing out it still itches the devil out of you for several days because of all the nasty poison it leaves behind.........

@Blood Red Witch
Are you saying i'm lying about reporters tweeting inside the courtroom ?
Judge Sautner allowed it and reporters such as Jen Heger(Radar Online Legal Reporter) Alan Duke(CNN Entertainment reporter) and Richard Winton(LA Times Editor) were live tweeting.

Several websites did not spell Kaman correctly.

Hell son how do you think they make Kristie Ally look so young on Dancing with the stars when in reality she has more wrinkles then one of the fat chinese doggie's with the wrinkled skin..come to think about it she looks like one of those dogs..

It's called a defuser filter and they use it on all the soaps and talk shows almost anything anymore....smooths out the wrinkles and enhances color....

Nicole, I have never accused you of being a lier. Misinformed maybe. There is alot of misinformation out there, as we all know. I just agreed with jwoolman that tweeting from the courtroom is highly unlikely. But, I will ck further and get back to you.

How are you this morning???
