As the clock ticks towards the deadline for Lindsay Lohan accepting her offered plea deal, a pal of the troubled actress exclusively tells RadarOnline.com the prosecution is a “complete waste of time” and insists “she is innocent.”
Lindsay has been offered a deal relating to her felony grand theft charge for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice Beach area jewelry store, but Lindsay’s friend says she shouldn’t have to take a deal, as she did NOT commit a crime.
“The whole prosecution is a complete waste of time because she is innocent!” Lohan’s close friend and producer Nathan Folks exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
“The tax payers are the ones who should be mad because this is a complete waste of time. I don’t want her to take the deal because she is innocent.”
Despite reports that Lindsay has turned down the offer to plea and is heading to trial, sources close to the situation tell RadarOnline.com that it is, as of yet, not a done deal.
“The judge has yet to be informed of Lindsay’s decision,” a source said.
But, Folks, for one, believes Lohan should not accept the plea, which will include jail time, as he vows she is totally innocent in the matter.
“She knows she’s innocent, and her stylist who was with her knows she’s innocent and her assistant who tried to get the necklace back knows she is innocent,” Folks told RadarOnline.com.
“She shouldn’t have to take a deal when she didn’t steal anything. Most of her friends agree that she shouldn’t take the plea deal.
“I think if she refuses the deal the case will get dropped because there is not enough proof. The only people who think she is guilty are the ones trying to make dollars — the jewelry store.
“She will be taking a risk but that is important.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the jewelers, Kamofie and Company, have come under fire for attempting to “cash in” on the alleged theft. They sold surveillance video of Lohan purportedly stealing the “one of a kind” designer necklace and were even shopping around for a book deal.
But, sources tell RadarOnline.com that as far as the DA is concerned that has no relevance as to whether Lohan committed a crime or not, and Danette Meyers is confident that she has a strong case against Lohan if they do indeed proceed to trial.
