Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer thinks her felony charge is crazy. For most felony thefts, the dollar amount has to be higher. This time, however, the prosecuting attorney is trying for precedence with the other items that Lindsay has been involved with that were over the $5,000 dollar amount.
Lindsay is out on bail and awaiting her trial later in the month. Her lawyer is hoping to have the charges dismissed or at least reduced to petty theft and let Lindsay get on with restarting her career.
Various Los Angeles jewelers have appraised the one-of-a-kind piece Lohan is alleged to have taken at between $800 and $1,000, TMZ.com reported.
“It seems to me that the appropriate charge, based on the fair market value of the goods, should have been petty theft and not grand theft,” LiLo’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, told the gossip website.
A petty theft charge is punishable by six months in jail, a much lighter sentence than the 3-1/2 years Lohan could face if convicted of grand theft.
Lindsay says she is not a thief. If she isn’t a thief, then why do things suddenly disappear when she has left? It sems that Lindsay is either unlucky or she is being picked on an awful lot.
