Lindsay Lohan Pleads Not Guilty At Arraignment, Bail Set At $40,000


Lindsay Lohan showed up to court today for her arraignment on charged of felony grand theft wearing a blinding white, up-to-there mini-dress, seemingly confident that she would post bail of $20,000 for the theft charges against her and go from court to, who knows, H-Wood or wherever. Lohan pleaded not guilty to the charges against her for theft of a necklace from a Los Angeles jewelry store, but she might get jail time for violating parole even if she swings a plea bargain. The judge in the case, Judge Keith Schwartz, told Lindsay somewhat harshly that now that she faced a felony, things were about to get a whole lot more serious. “You’re in a different situation now that a felony has been filed against you,” he told her. “If you violate the law, I will remand you and set no bail and your attorney won’t be successful this time. … You need to follow the laws just like everybody else … You’re no different than anyone else, so please don’t push your luck.” Lindsay undoubtedly had some choice words for the judge; she just couldn’t fit them all on her nails.

Lohan was also ordered by Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers not to come into contact with the store after the store owners reported that they received flowers from Lohan after the incident. Uhh, this is the law, not the prom, Lindsay. What? “A good probationer doesn’t pick up a new case,” Meyers snarked when Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley mentioned Lindsay had been dutifully reporting to her probation officer. According to the LA Times Lohan’s bail was eventually set at $40,000 ($20,000 for the felony charge and $20,000 for violating parole) and she was remanded into custody. Even after she posts bail, she’ll have to return to court on February 23. Ugh, think of all the extra necklaces she’s going to have to steal now to make up the difference! We mean…
