Lindsay Lohan’s Necklace Case is Over

The Superficial / March 7, 2011

For those of you hanging on to the extremely slim chance that Lindsay Lohan might be tossed in jail for her alleged jewelry theft, you can go back to waiting for her to run over a baby now. Apparently the jewelry store thought it’d be a great idea to sell the surveillance tape of Lindsay for $35,000 despite requests from the prosecution not to. TMZ reports:

Lindsay’s defense is that the necklace was a loan … the jeweler begged to differ. So intent is critical, and if the jeweler is called to the stand and admits this was just a convenient way of scoring some quick cash from the media, Kamofie will have about as much credibility as (insert favorite celebrity who lied in “comment” section).
We know lawyers in the case have been in touch with the people at Kamofie, trying to dissuade them from selling the tape … to no avail.

Since its sale, Lindsay now feels “vindicated” that the jewelry store was using her all along, and at this point, I don’t know how you can argue with that. Then again, there’s always the chance she was in on the sale, in which case everybody won because: A. No trial. B. She gets to look like the victim. And C. Everyone got paid. Of course, I’m also presupposing that Lindsay would be capable of such a plot instead of the more likely scenario that she was just going to wear a bikini to court. “Oh, I’ll take the stand your honor, but then who’s going to wash these jugs? These heaving, ample jugs. *whispers to lawyer* I replaced your court documents with a garden hose. You’re welcome.”
