Lindsay Lohan faced with jail if she accepts plea bargain

“Go to Jail. Go directly to Jail. Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200.”  Lindsay Lohan will be dished this card if she accepts a plea deal in her grand theft case.

The 24-year-old troulble magnet appeared in court today for a hearing on a charge that she stole a pricey necklace from a jewelry store.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz told the fresh-out-of-jail-and-rehab star: “I’ve never met you before the last court appearance… I treat everybody the same. I don’t care that you’re Lindsay Lohan.”

“I don’t want you to be a repeat offender in the system. I want you to get on with your life and reach whatever potential you have. Quit causing your family additional stress,” the judge continued.

“I don’t care that you’re Lindsay Lohan vs. Jane Doe. It doesn’t affect me. This case does involve jail time. Period. If you plead in front of me, you are going to jail.”

The 24-year-old actress has been in all kinds of renewed trouble with the law these last few months, including two stints behind bars, one for violating her probation for her 2007 DUI conviction and another, albeit extremely brief, for failing a drugs test.

If convicted for stealing ‘the one of a kind’ necklace, Lindsay could face up to three years in state prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
