(CBS/AP) Lindsay Lohan walked into court to face a felony grand theft charge looking like a million bucks, wearing a thigh-high white dress which has reportedly sold out online, only to be told by a judge she was no different than anyone else.
Lohan's arraignment on a charge that she stole a $2,500 necklace from an upscale jeweler wasn't the first time a judge threatened to throw the troubled starlet in jail. But it was the first time a judge wielded enough power to keep her locked up for a long time.
"You're in a different situation now that a felony has been filed," Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz said after the actress pleaded not guilty Wednesday. "You're no different than anyone else. So please, don't push your luck."
The white dress was designed by Kimberly Ovitz and sells for $575. According to ABC station KGO, the dress has sold out at every online boutique.
Judges sent her to jail twice last year and twice to rehab as well, but her time in custody was shortened each time by overcrowding and the fact that she was being held on misdemeanor charges and bail had to be set. During her recent three month stay in rehab at the Betty Ford Clinic, Lohan was accused of battery on a worker. Prosecutors are still considering whether to file charges.
The necklace theft accusation came less than three weeks after Lohan's discharge from Betty Ford.
In both cases, Lohan's attorney has denied wrongdoing by the actress.
The "Mean Girls" star is due back in court on Feb. 23, an important hearing in which Lohan could opt to end the case early. Her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, indicated Wednesday that the actress was interested in an early disposition program if the terms are right.
