Wednesday is decision day for Lindsay Lohan to either accept Judge Keith Schwartz's offer of a plea deal in the felony theft of a necklace from a jewelry store, or go to trial. Sources tell TMZ that Lohan's confidence is starting to wane and she is seriously considering accepting the deal, although she has been told it will include three months in jail. The term will likely be reduced to 19 days because of jail overcrowding. Sources say Lohan is starting to realize that she will not be able to avoid jail and is "seriously considering" the plea deal, although she has insisted that she would never take the plea deal because she feels she did nothing wrong and simply "borrowed" the necklace. Sources say Lohan is beginning to understand the risks of going forward with a trial, which could result in a sentence of more than a year in jail for the probation violation, along with time for the felony grand theft. Her attorney, Shawn Holley, shown above with Lohan, must inform the judge on Wednesday of Lohan's decision, and Lohan will be back in court on Friday to begin whichever process she chooses. Lohan is accused of felony grand theft in the removal of a one-of-a-kind necklace worth $2,500 from Kamofie & Co. on Jan. 23.
