  • Interesting: Several jewelers claim the value of the necklace Lindsay Lohan allegedly stole is not $2500, but closer to $800 or $1000. California law states that if an item is $950 or less, theft is a misdemeanor, not a felony. The D.A. says: "If [Lindsay's lawyer] presents me with credible evidence of value, we will take a look at it. But based upon what's in front of us — what the store owner and designer said — the necklace is worth $2,500." [TMZ]
  • A new witness has come forward, claiming that he went to the jewelry store way before Lindsay did, and was interested in buying the necklace in question. They told him it was $800. [Radar Online]
