    Lindsay Lohan Pleads "No Contest" in Jewelry Theft Case - In California,  "no contest" is like an admission of guilt

    Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to four months in jail, as Reuters reports that the former actress (since, really, what has she been in lately?) pleaded no contest on Wednesday to stealing a $2,500 gold necklace from a Los Angeles store in January.

    Lohan, who was not in court, entered the plea through her lawyer on a less serious misdemeanor theft charge that reduced her sentence and likely jail time.

    Under California law, a no contest plea is effectively an admission of guilt. Lohan, 24, who has been in and out of jail and drug rehab for almost four years, had previously pleaded not guilty, insisting on her innocence. It is likely that Lohan will be placed under house arrest due to prison overcrowding.

    Additionally, PEOPLE reports that Lohan drank alcohol the night she had an altercation with an employee while in rehab and also failed a random alcohol test after she left rehab, according to a probation report. Are you sick of the Lindsay Lohan saga?
