According to ABC News, the infamous actress was charged recently with a felony that stems from the disappearance of a $2,500 necklace from a boutique in Venice, CA in January. On Tuesday, February 2 the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) began an investigation of the actress in connection with the possible theft of the necklace.
In relation to what Lohan needs to do regarding to the case and her public image, Sitkoff states, “Lindsay needs to do the things she needs to do in order to show the court that she’s living differently.” According to the video, Lohan is attending AA meetings and is taking her charges seriously.
