UPDATE: Lindsay Lohan Pleads Not Guilty To Felony Charges

Lindsay Lohan pleaded not guilty to felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace - a case that could return the troubled starlet to jail rather than the big screen.

She entered the plea Wednesday through her attorney.

Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz set bail at $40,000. He says it appears Lohan violated her probation and told her not to push her luck by getting into any more trouble.

The "Mean Girls" star was met by a swarm of photographers when she arrived at the courthouse for her arraignment in a white dress and sunglasses.

Prosecutors claim the 24-year-old starlet took the necklace in January while on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case.

If convicted of the theft charge, Lohan could face up to three years in state prison.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles plan to charge actress Lindsay Lohan Wednesday with felony grand theft.

The charge arises after a $2,500 necklace was reported stolen from a jewelry store last month.

Police disclosed last week that Lohan was under investigation for allegedly taking the necklace from the store, located in the Venice district of LA. The necklace was turned in to police before they could search Lohan's home for it.

The 24-year-old is due in court for a Wednesday afternoon arraignment. Lohan's attorney has denied any wrongdoing by his client.

Lohan is already on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case. The new felony case would represent the most serious charge the actress has faced, and could send her back to jail.

    Who cares that she stole a necklace?! This should not even be news worthy! She's clearly screaming out for attention! She LOVES all the hype the media makes when she does something wrong! I say throw her in prison and throw away the key and not worry about her anymore! STOP giving her a slap on the wrist! There are more important things to discuss in the news then a drug addicted poor excuse for an actress!

    You know, after seeing this on other places, the jewelry store said she walked out with a $2,500 necklace. Did no one ask her for it or tell her to stop when she was leaving or call the police immediately after it happened? Seriously what kind of people run that store?
