Lindsay Lohan New York, Feb 16 (ANI): Lindsay Lohan might finally get a break from being charged with grand theft after she was accused of stealing a necklace from a store.

A mystery witness has stepped forward to say he previously considered purchasing the exact same necklace and the same store quoted him a drastically lower price, Lohan’s dad told

“He went into the jewellerysi store way before Lindsay did and was interested in buying the necklace,” the New York Daily News quoted Lohan as telling

“They told him it was 800 dollars.”

This would be critical since 950 dollars is the threshold at which petty theft becomes felony grand theft. And prosecutors have said the necklace is worth 2,500 dollars.

Lindsay faces up to three years if convicted and has signalled she’s interested in a plea deal. (ANI)
