Saying that your client is dumb as a rock isn’t exactly the greatest legal strategy in the world, but that may be what Lindsay Lohans lawyers will claim, because 4 days before she stole that necklace, she “accidentally” tried to walk out of the same jewelry store with a diamond ear ring.
Lindsay tried on a pair of 18 karat gold white diamond earrings … (she) removed one earring and left the other in her ear while she shopped.?
“Ms. Lohan gathered her things and started to leave the jewelry store without making a purchase. Ms. Lohan’s hair was flipped to one side covering the diamond earring.”
?”[The clerk] stopped her and reminded Ms. Lohan she was still wearing the earring. Ms. Lohan laughed, admitted to her mistake and removed the earring from her ear and returned it to [the clerk].”?
This is a dumb story, right? Oh but wait…
Ironically, the earring incident could actually help Lindsay.
She had absentmindedly left her own, more expensive earrings on the counter as she began walking out of the store with the single earring.
And, people who know Lindsay say she’s a scatterbrain who forgets basic things all the time.?
Yes, indeed, it would help her case, IF she were claiming she walked out with the necklace by mistake. And then not worn it for two weeks. Instead she’s claiming it was loaned to her. So it’s not the same thing. At all.
That’s not to say she isn’t dumb, because, oh, she is. In fact it’s amazing her plan didn’t revolve around stuff like a gun that fires honey and attaching bottle rockets to a skunk.
