Lindsay Lohan is being investigated for grand theft of the $400,000 worth of jewels from Dior she was wearing at her Elle Magazine photo shoot. Scotland Yard has been brought in to review the facts surrounding the lost jewels. The items, a diamond necklace and diamond earrings, were reported stolen right after she wore them on June 6, 2009.
According to sources close to the investigation, Lohan admired the jewels and asked if she could keep them. The jewels were not reported stolen for two days. At that time, Central London Police were notified.
Los Angeles grand theft crimes need to be defended by a Los Angeles grand theft defense attorney. People who are charged and convicted of a grand theft could be sent to prison for 3 years if the case is a felony. After release from prison, the person will be on parole and will have to be monitored. That is why if you or someone you know is being investigated for a South California grand theft crime, they should immediately hire a theft crime defense attorney who will handle the pre-filing investigation and assist that person early on even before the case is filed.
