Lindsay Lohan Pleads No Contest

Lindsay Lohan pleaded no contest to her misdemeanor theft charge yesterday (5/11/11).  Lindsay wasn’t at the hearing.  Her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, pleaded on her behalf.   

In pleading no contest, Lindsay didn’t have to admit guilt, but it still counts as a conviction.  Lindsay will not receive any jail time beyond the 120 days she was already sentenced to for violating her 2007 DUI probation.

She’s been ordered to begin serving that sentence by June 17th.  She has applied for home detention, but there’s no word yet if she’ll get it.  The judge also ordered Lindsay to attend a shoplifting program and undergo psychiatric counseling.
