It looks like Lindsay Lohan is down to two choices: a little jail time or possibly a lot of it.
A Los Angeles judge on Thursday gave the troubled starlet until March 25 to decide whether she’ll take a plea bargain — which TMZ.com reported could include as little as three months in jail — or go to trial over the $2,500 necklace a California jewelry store claims she stole.
The latter option opens up the possibility that the “Mean Girls” star could get at least 6 months for a DUI probation violation and a year in prison for grand theft.
Lohan has already pleaded not guilty to the theft charge, saying the store, Kamofie & Co., loaned it to her and that an assistant was late in returning it.
Shawn Holley, the actress’ lawyer, told the Daily News that said was happy the judge gave them some more time but the attorney would not give any hint as to whether the 24-year-old actress would reconsider the plea offer.
Should Lohan reject the deal, she’ll head to trial with a preliminary hearing scheduled for April 22. At that time, her probation for her drunk driving and drug use conviction could be yanked, which means Lohan could return to jail for the fourth time since 2007.
Lohan entered the courthouse Thursday in a tan sweater dress and black leggings, a contrast to the more recent outfits that some said were being too provocative for court.
