The Lilo saga continues! Lindsay Lohan has refused a plea deal in a case that charges her with stealing a $2,500 dollar necklace from a Venice shop, according to the LA Times. The deal would have included her pleading guilty to grand theft, and up to 90 days in jail. Instead, Lohan will have a preliminary hearing with judge Stephanie Sautner, who will also consider Lohan's violation of probation on a 2007 drunk driving charge.

Lohan had previously been told by Judge Keith Schwartz, who originally heard the theft case, that should she plead guilty in his courtroom, she would most definitely face time behind bars.
