Lindsay Lohan was back in court today as she rejected a plea agreement offered by prosecutors in a grand theft case. The plea would have guaranteed Lohan's return to jail.

The exact terms of the deal were not disclosed to the public.

The Mean Girls actress told judges at the Los Angeles courtroom that she agreed to delay her case until a preliminary hearing when prosecutors will present evidence against her.

The preliminary hearing has been set for April 22.

Judge Keith Schwartz warned Lohan that if she stands trial she may be sent to prison for violating her probation on a 2007 drunken driving case. Lohan can appear in court March 23 if she chooses to plead guilty or no contest to the charge.

Lohan is accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice jewelry store. Just a few days ago surveillance footage was aired of the 24-year-old actress trying on necklaces at Kamofie & Co.

The footage was aired by Entertainment Tonight. The video shows Lohan pacing around the store and talking to the employees for approximately 45 minutes.

It was announced Wednesday that the owners of Kamofie & Co. will auction the necklace and donate the money to an unspecified charity after the theft case is resolved. The necklace currently remains with authorities.
