Lindsay Lohan to Take Her Case to a Jury
Lindsay Lohan is rolling the dice and hoping that a jury will believe her claim that she is not a thief.

A preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence for a trail is set to begin on April 22. If convicted, Lohan faces a maximum of three years in prison.
