Lindsay Lohan Pleads Not Guilty

Lindsay Lohan pleaded Not Guilty to a felony charge of theft yesterday.  Lindsay is accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store in Venice California.  The necklace was only returned to police after the media reported that the cops had obtained a warrant to search Lindsay’s home for it.  Still, Lindsay claims the store, Kamofie & Company, loaned the necklace to her.

 Lindsay was booked and released on $40,000 bail.  That broke down to $20,000 for the theft charge and another $20,000 for violating her probation.   But the judge in this case sounds pretty serious.  He told her,

“What I’m telling you is that you need to follow the laws just like everybody else . . . You’re no different than anyone else.  So please, don’t push your luck.”
