Lindsay Lohan seeking plea bargain

Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer told CNN that the actress will seek a plea bargain in the felony grand theft case against her. “Ms. Lohan maintains her innocence, and now that I’ve seen the police reports, I believe the case is entirely defensible,” Shawn Chapman Holley told CNN. “Having said that, we will entertain a discussion concerning a plea if it means no jail so that she can move forward with her recovery and her career.”

On Wednesday, the actress pleaded not guilty to the charge, and is free on bail. A hearing is set for Feb. 23. The charge stems from a Venice, Calif., store’s claim that Lohan had stolen a necklace worth $2,500. If she’s convicted of the felony grand theft charge, she could receive up to three years in jail.
