Vindicated! LiLo's Surveillance Tape Sale Hurts Prosecution's Case!

Operation "Keep LiLo Out Of The Clink" may have gotten a lucky break.

Over the weekend, we reported that the surveillance tape from the jewelry store Lindsay Lohan allegedly robbed was sold to the highest bidder by the folks who own the store. Following the sale, the jewelers released a statement explaining why they did this, insisting that this LiLo scandal has cost them a lot of money and they had no other choice. A rep for the store explains that customers "stayed away from the store because of the paparazzi and the controversy," and that his clients had to find a way to recover their losses, though what they sold the tape for wasn't as much as they hoped.

The tape and stills are actually in the hands of the Associated Press and now, they handle who can license the material. Access to the tape comes at a steep price, but the rep reveals that the video will also be streamed on the jeweler's new website, necklacevideo.com, which should be up and running soon.

Oh yeah. They aren't milking this for all it's worth AT ALL!

Meanwhile, Team LiLo isn't so concerned that the tape is being wide-released. In fact, according to sources, Lindsay is relishing in this, as it proves what she's been saying from the start - the jewelers are greedy liars who are just trying to capitalize on her situation.

Considering the shady deal they've made, we're inclined to believe her, which is exactly what Lindsay is hoping will happen with Judge Schwartz. The prosecution practically begged the jewelry store not to release the tape, fearing it would destroy their case. As that cat is totally unleashed from the bag, Lindsay is hoping to garner some sympathy and sway the D.A. to seeing things her way.

As in, no jail time.

Depending on what exactly can be seen on that tape, perhaps she might have a shot at staying free after all!

    This might be part of a legal team's effort to sabotage the Crown, er I mean the State's case. The goal is to get it thrown out…



  2. 2

    Perez, as 'we reported?" You mean as you COPIED! And, I'm sorry, but did you or did you not make several posts in which YOU stated as fact that she would be going to jail no matter what? Careful Perez. Be very careful.



  3. 3

    If you are suddenly inclined to believe her, then you are a damn fool, Perez. How many times has Lindsay sold "family home movies" on Extra? Called paparazzi to follow her? Stood up that rich guy at that ball after he paid her all that $$? She's a big fat liar and a prostitute! If she gets off because of this, it will be par for her course but that DOES NOT mean she's innocent.

    Vindicated??
    That's a long way from happening, mister.



  5. 5

    I bet her lawyer bought the video. I know I would have.



  6. 6

    Lindsay should sue their asses! It should be an easy win for her. $Millions!$



  7. 7

    I'm sure her "team" had something to do with this. I.E. they bought it from the store and sold it to ET. Doesn't even matter. Her career is so over.



  8. 8

    I doubt the judge is going to change his mind because the jewelry store did something stupid. She stole the necklace, thereby committing a felony and violating the terms of her probation. She's going to jail.



  9. 9

    So the jewelry store owner is a douche. Doesn't make her any less of a thief.



  10. 10

    ENOUGH WITH THE "VINDICATED", the video show the bitch stealing a necklace. PERIOD



  11. 11

    Due to the short sighted stupidity of the retailer selling the footage there will be no jail for Lindsay and the charges will be dropped. Lucky break for Lindsay. Evidence is a tricky thing and it all plays very well into the hands of Lohans legal team. Watch for case dropped this week or next. Gee, sorry jewelry store that you didn't get as much $$$$ as you'd hoped.

    In other words, this whole thing is a scripted drama, like every story in Us Weekly or In Touch? It's getting weird for me, because the mainstream press covered this story more than the situation in Egypt, and I even wonder if we have any accurate view of the world when obviously even the "supposed" real news outlets can be controlled by $ and our government. (By the way, poor choice to actually include the .com address of this jewelry store, because obviously, you would not have mentioned it if there wasn't $ involved)

    Of course this is what happened. Clearly the jewelry store owner was f.o.s. The necklace was overvalued on purpose; they waited days before reporting it, and their plan backfired. After all, what consumer would EVER want to do business with a company that wasn't discreet?

    Why should a leaked tape have any bearing on theft? She either walked out with it or she didn't. It is what it is, either way.



  15. 15

    I stopped commenting on this issue because I did feel that the Jewlery store was full of it, especially when I saw the cheap-ass necklace.
    .
    I believed Lindsey when she said it was "borrowed", and the tape is proving her right.
    .
    Lucky girl.

    The thinking here is what? These people are jerks so it was ok for her to steal from them? How does this in any way change the fact that she was in possession of something that did not belong to her and made no attempt to rectify the situation until she got caught?

    If she hadn't done it, there would be nothing to shop around.
