Lindsay Lohan is heading back to court today in Los Angeles for a preliminary hearing in her stolen necklace case. It is expected that Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, will ask for the charges against her client to be reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor. If the judge agrees, Lohan will likely avoid any hard time and she can get back to work playing not-Victoria Gotti.(Though she wanted the role of Victoria, Lohan was cast instead as the younger Kim Gotti.)
In an effort to boost her image (if it’s even possible for her to do that anymore), Lohan has actually been trying to put the good word out that’s she’s eager to be back in the acting game. She told the Associated Press “I’m really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do.” Lohan also Tweeted a message to her fans, writing “With my family and thinking of my grandfather [whose] birthday was yesterday and unfortunately passed away a few years ago… i am just grateful for the life i have, i cannot explain how excited i am to begin working on films again, on top of that- i better get one of my two favorite scripts that i am in love with. my friends know what they both are….. all my love- LL god bless and g’night ”
Is her time for redemption near? We hope so, but at this point, it’s up to the judge to decide. We’ll keep you posted on the verdict as it comes in.
