Getty ImagesWe were told by several prominent attorneys that Lindsay should take her chances on a jury trial — and now she is, officially.

Lindsay Lohan is going to roll the dice and leave her fate to her peers in that stolen-necklace case. Here’s why …

LiLo’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley says (again) that her client is innocent, and that she’s going to let a jury decide whether she should go to jail for allegedly stealing a necklace from a Venice, Calif. jewelry store on Jan. 21.

“Ms. Lohan has maintained her innocence from the moment this case was filed and she has never wavered,” said Holley in a statement. “Though many advised her to follow the safe route by taking ‘the deal,’ the truth is, Ms. Lohan is innocent; she has a strong defense; and we are confident that a jury will listen to the evidence fairly and acquit her.”

This means that the next time Lindsay will be in court is April 22, and she will appear in front of Judge Stephanie Sautner for a preliminary hearing in preparation for the trial.

According to, Holley has informed the LA County District Attorney and the other judge in this case — Judge Keith Schwartz — of her decision.

maybe if she hadnt made most of the states hate her by now, she could get acquitted. but over the past few years she has exploited herself and built up such a negative image- no jury will acquit her.

I think what this store is doing is all for publicicty. I have been going to the same jeweler for years, and the last time I was shopping, I couldn’t decide on a $75,000 ring.
My jeweler allowed me to take it and wear it for a week to see if I liked it enough to buy it. Reputable jewelers do this all the time!
The interesting thing is that I wanted opinions on this ring, and people were impressed that I had it for a week, and it actually brought customers for this jeweler.
