LiLo's Prosecutor Willing To Lessen Charge If Stolen Necklace Really Is Overpriced

Operation "Keep LiLo Out Of The Clink" has reached phase three: Get felony charge reduced to misdemeanor.

Alright, so we assume most of you don't know how the legal system works, so let us give you a bit of lesson. Right now, Lindsay Lohan is poised to stand trial for a felony grand theft charge. The reason her charge is considered a "felony" is because the necklace she supposedly stole was valued at over $950. That's how the cookies crumble here in California. However, if the necklace in question was actually valued at a lesser price point, then Lindsay would be facing a misdemeanor charge, not a felony. Big difference!

We already know that LiLo's super lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, has already gotten several prominent jewelers to admit that the bling's really only worth between $800-$1,000, but now it seems you're a mean one Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers is willing to hear evidence to that affect. She told sources:

"If Shawn (Lindsay's lawyer) presents me with credible evidence of value, we will take a look at it. But based upon what's in front of us — what the store owner and designer said — the necklace is worth $2,500."

Uh-huh. Well, we are in a bad economy and the price of gold has gone up, so maybe the designer opted to inflate their price a bit. One things for sure, this should be Shawn's top priority right now. A misdemeanor is decidedly less damaging to LiLo's future than being found guilty of a felony.

Then again, she's innocent, right? So this is all a moot point anyway? Right? RIGHT?

  3. 3

    LESSEN, dum-dum, not lesson. Should you even be in this business if you can't spell? Sheesh.



  4. 4

    people shouldn't shop at that store, it's obviously overpriced!



  5. 5

    I am so sick of hearing about this bitch. There are people that have gotten in a lot more trouble for a lot less than her.

    I love that you're going to educate everyone, Perez, but you can't spell or edit a single post. Awesome.

    "Alright, so we assume most of you don't know how the legal system works, so let us give you a bit of lesson."

    Oh please Perez! How arrogant of you! You know nothing. I can't believe what an ego you have! Like anyone should or would take your word for anything. Tool.

    "so we assume most of you don't know how the legal system works, so let us give you a bit of lesson" Sure… def. turning to you for that kinda questions. Dummy.

    I think she needs to answer for taking the necklace and get jail time if needed to teach her that she can't keep screwing up. The thing is, if the necklace is worth less than $950.00 the charges should be a lesser charge/misdemeanor too. This girl needs to learn she can't keep pulling this crap without facing the music.

    So now it wasn't leant to her, she was never in the store… etc etc.
    Ok we now admit she stole it but it's a piece of cheap costume jewellery
    she stole..
    Let me get this right.. if this smoke and mirrors ploy works anyone convicted of a felony theft can appeal and get the stuff appraised according to Lindsay's
    case and her lawyers reasoning…
    Bull

    WOW. How typically LOW-hands. Make the victims out to be the criminals, because Lord knows it's never Blohan's fault. That poor store, and that poor designer! They wanted to keep this as quiet as possible. They did not want publicity, but they did the right thing and had the authorities handle the CRIME. If the necklace was so overpriced, then why did that dirty little snatch want it so badly?! And, these stupid, unprofessional "jewelers" coming out of the woodwork to say it is overpriced have never even seen it in person! It is a one-of-a-kind that has been in police custody since it was turned over to the police. Paintings are just oils on canvas; does that mean they are only worth a few dollars? An handmade designer dress is just cotton or silk; does that make it worth the same as something on triple clearance at Ross? Put the damn thing on eBay and see how much it goes for. My guess is that it would go for a lot more than $2500… and Shawn Chapman Whorey can choke on that. I loathed her before, but when she called that necklace a $5 lump of coal, I could have b8tchslapped her. How dare she insult a working artist, while she waltzes into Court in Louboutins and Armani. What an assh*le.

    ok people complaining about spelling errors- stop reading the site if it bothers you that much- and really, none of you ever typed really fast and made a mistake? This is for fun, not a legal document folks…….
    and yes, if she is innocent then the cost of the necklace should not matter- does make you wonder why the actual cost is being pushed so much…..

    notice how they have stopped claiming she didn't steal it. now it is just that she didn't steal EXPENSIVE jewelry. Well, when she STOLE it she had been told it was worth $2500 so that is what she believed she was stealing. So, now she DID steal it, but heck, let's let her ride on it, since it wasn't REALLY worth as much as she thought. OMG, what a defense!
