Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced Wednesday after pleading no contest in the theft of a necklace. She also surprisingly abandoned her appeal in her DUI probation location case.
In a case that has riveted Hollywood, Lindsay was accused of stealing a necklace originally valued at $2500 from a Venice Beach, Ca. jewelry store last January.
Lindsay was not in court Wednesday morning. Her attorney Shawn Holley was there representing her.
She was sentenced to three year’s probation, ordered to stay away from the jeweler, Kamofie & Co., attend The Shoplifter’s Alternative program, have psychological counseling, and pay fines totaling $180.
Surveillance video tape of the event was later sold and aired on TV and the Internet, and a judge later knocked the charge down to a misdemeanor.
Through it all, Lindsay – through her attorney Shawn Holley – insisted she hadn’t done anything wrong.
This is a separate issue than the sentence Lohan received for violating the terms of her DUI probation. Last month the judge found that she’d violated her probation and sentenced her to 480 hours of community service and 120 days in jail. That sentence was restated at today’s hearing.
The judge ordered Lindsay to turn herself in to the jail for her 120 days on June 17. She’s already applied to have that sentence changed to house arrest, and is likely to be approved for it.
Lohan has already begun the community service even while appealing the jail term. The judge ordered that her community service and her house arrest must be served consecutively.
