Report: Lindsay Lohan Offered 60 to 90 Days in Jail

AL SEIB/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The judge presiding over Lindsay Lohan's grand theft case has reportedly told the actress he would sentence her to 60 to 90 days in jail if she accepted a plea deal. Lohan's latest legal trouble stems from accusations she stole a necklace valued at $2,500 from a Venice, California jewelry store Jan. 22.

RadarOnline reports a source close to the situation says Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz has told the Mean Girls star she would serve the sentence in county jail.

Judge Schwartz told Lohan at a hearing last week that she has until March 23 to take a plea deal.  If she does, she would plead guilty or no contest to a grand theft charge at a March 25 hearing.

Lohan has previously indicated she will not accept a plea deal.  If she doesn't change her mind, a hearing will be held April 22, during which another judge will determine if there's enough evidence for the star to stand trial for allegedly stealing the pricey piece of jewelry.

The judge would also determine whether the alleged theft violated the terms of Lohan's probation in her 2007 DUI cases.  She could face up to three years in state prison if convicted.
