lindsay-lohan_6 Yielding yet another turn in her legal battle,  Lindsay Lohan’s theft case will now be handed off from the county D.A.’s office to the L.A. City Attorney.

Just last month, Judge Stephanie Sautner ruled that 25-year-old’s offense – which stems from the alleged theft of a $2,500 necklace – would be reduced from it’s prior felony status.

As a result of that decision, the district attorney’s office has said, “Because the charge was reduced by the court to a misdemeanor, the district attorney no longer has jurisdiction to prosecute the case and therefore, we will give the case to the Los Angeles city attorney’s office.”

Lohan, who has already been sentenced to 120 days in behind bars and 480 hours of community service for a probation violation, is expected to enter a no-contest plea in the case against her, which could mean no additional jail time for the actress.
