Judge Rules Lindsay Lohan Violated Probation, Sets Trial Date


Lindsay Lohan


A Los Angeles judge has ruled Lindsay Lohan violated the terms of her probation after she was charged with the theft of a necklace and has ordered her to stand trial in June.

The "Mean Girls" actress, Lindsay Lohan is accused of stealing the $2,500 (GBP1,670) item from California store Kamofie & Co. in January. She has maintained her innocence and rejected a second plea deal in March.

Lindsay Lohan appeared in court on Friday for a preliminary hearing, where testimonies were heard from a number of potential witnesses, including police detectives and shop owner Sofia Kaman.

Judge Stephanie Sautner denied a motion filed by Lindsay Lohan's lawyer Shawn Holley to dismiss the case and ruled the star had broken the terms of her probation, stemming from a previous DUI charge.

However, she decided to reduce the crime from a felony to a misdemeanour because the DUI count took place four years ago.

Lindsay Lohan formerly pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Judge Sautner set a trial date for June 3 and ordered Lindsay Lohan to attend a pretrial date on May 11, reports TMZ.com.

The actress faces a stint in jail if convicted of the charge.
