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.

A thief is a thief is a thief.

Thievery is an addiction, and it doesn't ever completely disappear from a person. It can be worked on by conscious effort, but the key is consciously working on it , not hiding it, realizing what it is and then striving to reform ones self. Sadly this girl only cares about lying to get out of this situation. Has she changed?


Thievery leads to lying - lying to say you never did it, and so on and so on. Until this woman makes a conscious effort to be honest with herself, she will always be a thief and a liar.

Ask any reformed thief (the only thief who will be honest), if a thief is a thief is a thief. And you'll receive an honest nod.

If yo'll don't think that TMZ is nothing but a smut rag go look at the latest lead story !!!!

Harvey Levin and TMZ Kiddies have crawled deep down into nasty shyty gutter with this one.....Harvey get a clue man Obama didn't do a dam thing to bring Ben Liden down...The US military and the Navy Seals did. He was safe behind his steel plated doors why our boys were out there doing the job....

Harvey Levin and the Lohans are a good match both of them are as about as low morals as you can go....disgusting

If she pleads no contest because she wants to accept responsibility, why not plead guilty?

You talk to yourself... You don't like ANYBODY (but yourself). You hate the "haters" yet you also say things like:

my gut tells me 90210 is Paul the PR guy for hire or some other Lohan lackey, trying to steer us into believing Lohan is so easily fixed and redeemable.

Don't be so sure about your "facts" her past activities and sociopathic tendencies have been ingrained for decades

wtf it will take her 3 years to admit she has stolen .she will be dead in 6 months without enforced sobriety....FACT

skewed logic from such a smart dude?
Stealing things from others Does not make you "look like a thief"
It MAKES You an actual fkn THIEF and drugs you say.. she should go straight to jail (rehabs 5x).hey BFC was so life changing bla bla bla R.I.P Lindsay Lohan with enablers like 90210 your doomed.

What is up with you??? Are you just confused?

Gotta laugh !!! I bet Lindsey's really pissed she was all set up for a big day of tidbits and photos of her ***munity service stint and shes been up staged by all the TMZ Bin Liden coverage....No four or five tidbits for her today unless Harvey runs out of his Bin Linden story hits. so she ain't goina make any money today......Take heart Lindsey he'll give you a hit later on hopefully , hey, take this change at getting use to not having your face all over the gossip sites cause soon enough its goina be like this permanently.....
