Lindsay Lohan temporarily avoided jail yesterday after appearing in court and being given until 25 March to decide whether she will accept a court deal and plead guilty or no contest to the alleged theft of a necklace.
The 24-year-old Mean Girls actress has been offered a six-month sentence for the grand theft felony but her lawyer Shawn Holley has met with judge Keith Schwartz to bargain for a lesser sentence.
A source has told the Sun, "Lindsay's lawyer Shawn Holley was asking for no jail time, but the judge said he would sentence her to a minimum of 60 days, but likely not longer than 90 days."
If Lohan is to turn down the deal, pleads no contest and is found guilty, she could face an even longer jail term.
The troubled starlet has maintained that she was loaned the £1,500 necklace by the LA store Kamofie & Co and that her assistant forgot to return it on time.
Surveillance tapes have captured the star browsing the shop for 40 minutes and trying on three necklaces before putting on the one she is accused of taking.
Yesterday, it was reported that Lohan was planning on suing the company after they apparently sold the tapes for £21,000 to the press, with claims they made a profit from her name without her consent.
Her mother Dina has since said, "Once again, celebrities are faced with the possibilities of their normal daily activity being filmed and sold without their knowledge and their consent, and our family is looking into formal legal action."
The star is on probation for a DUI back in 2007 which she violated last year, and was warned last month by Judge Schwartz, "I don't care if you're Lindsay Lohan. This case does involve jail. If you plead in front of me and this case is resolved in front of me you are going to jail. Period."
A preliminary hearing has been set for April 22.
