Well, this isn't cool. Not cool at all.
You better seriously consider taking that plea bargain, Lindsay. Six months sounds a lot more manageable than three years.
Yesterday, Judge Schwartz looked LiLo square in the face and told her she was going to prison. The only reason she wasn't going that very instant was because new evidence surfaced that needed to be reviewed by her lawyer and after taking it into account, she and LiLo could decide on how they wanted to proceed. The evidence in question is the mysterious surveillance video from the jewelry store, which has long been rumored to be able to prove Lindsay had sticky fingers that fateful day. Now, we've got specifics deets from this video, as shared with sources by a law enforcement insider on the case.
Let's go to the tape!
According to the source, in the video, Lindsay is seen taking off her own jewelry, specifically a necklace, to try the supposed stolen necklace on. A few moments later, she is seen putting her own necklace back on, without having taken off the store's one. While this is going on, her "male companion" is seen "distracting" the store clerk. Once Lindsay had gotten her own necklace back on, she and her friend walk out of the shop with the store's necklace "clearly visible" around her neck .
Now that's what we like to call BUSTED! The legal system, however, more officially classifies this as a "distraction theft." However, according to sources, the D.A. is sure Lindsay knew what she was doing. The insider explains:
"The District Attorney believes that Lindsay's friend distracted the clerk on purpose and that could bolster the case if it goes to trial against Lindsay. This simply wasn't a case of miscommunication of a necklace being loaned and not returned, as Lindsay has claimed."
Yeah, sure doesn't sound like that to us either
Do the right thing, LiLo. Admit your guilty, send your orange jumper to the dry cleaners and lets give this prison thing another whirl. Maybe this time, you'll be lucky. Maybe this time, you'll
stay learn something.
