Actress Lindsay Lohan pleaded not guilty Wednesday to stealing a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store.
Donning a short, white dress, the 24-year-old actress appeared in court and was charged with a single count of felony grand theft.
Everyone else has to follow the law. You're no different than any one, L.A. Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz told the star. So please, don't push your luck.
After the arraignment, Lohan posed for her fifth mug shot in four years.
Late last month Kamofie & Co. a boutique jewelry store in Venice, California reported the custom necklace stolen. Lohan, whose apartment is located close to the jewelry store, claims that the necklace was given to her on loan. The store maintains that it was stolen after photos of the actress wearing the necklace surfaced.
Officials knocked on LiLo's apartment last week, equipped with a search warrant, but the necklace was returned by one of Lohan's associates before police could conduct the search.
The troubled actress is currently on probation for drunk driving and cocaine possession from 2007. If convicted of the theft charge, she would also be in violation of probation which could mean more jail time.
The judge set bail at $20,000 for the grand theft larceny charge and $20,000 for violating her 2007 probation from a drunken-driving case.
Lohan is due back in court Feb. 23. If convicted, she could face up to three years in prison.
