In a bombshell new development in her felony theft case, Lindsay Lohan has an ace up her designer sleeve -- a witness who has come forward that will blow the prosecution's claims out of the water, her father Michael Lohan told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive new interview.
Accused of stealing a necklace the store claims is valued at $2,500, Lindsay is facing felony charges, but a new witness will offer solid evidence that may keep the 24-year-old Mean Girls star out of jail.
"A man contacted Lindsay's camp and told them he went into the jewelry store way before Lindsay did and was interested in buying the necklace," Michael revealed to RadarOnline.com. And, the bombshell?
"They told him it was $800."
According to Michael, the man heard about Lindsay's predicament and came forward to tell his side of the story about the necklace, and he has volunteered to testify for Lindsay if there is a trial.
Elated at the news of the new witness and confident that this will be a blow to the prosecution of his daughter, Michael explained to RadarOnline.com the effect he expects the man's testimony to have on the case.
"This witness will completely exonerate Lindsay and prove that the necklace isn't worth $2,500, and prove that she shouldn't have been charged with a felony."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Lindsay's case in being handled by Judge Schwartz, and she is scheduled to return to court on Wednesday, February 23.
