Lindsay Lohan Will Plead No Contest to Misdemeanor Theft

Lindsay Lohan Will Plead No Contest

Lindsay Lohan intends to come good on a statement that she made on Jay Leno earlier this week that she is a big girl who is ready to take responsibility for her actions.

Lindsay, who has already been sentenced to 120 days in jail and 480 days of community service for violating the terms of her probation in a 2007 DUI case, will plead no contest to a misdemeanor theft charge for stealing a necklace.

Lindsay's trial for theft is scheduled to start May 11, but according to TMZ, she and her lawyer Shawn Holley will enter the no contest plea next week.

Sources tell TMZ, that Lindsay's legal team is hoping Lindsay's plea will not entail additional jail time for her, as is typical in such cases.

Lindsay has said that she will appeal against the 120 day jail sentence for DUI violation, but legal experts believe that will only buy her time; eventually the sentence will be upheld.

When that happens, Lindsay will probably stay in jail for three weeks, LA. County Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ.
