LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan on Wednesday was given two weeks to consider a plea deal in her jewellery theft case and warned by a judge that she faced jail time if she decided to plead guilty. Lohan was told to return to a Los Angeles court on March 10 to either accept a plea deal offered by prosecutors, or go ahead with a full trial. "We are not going to be able to resolve the case today," Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith L. Schwartz said after meeting behind doors with attorneys for the two sides. But he warned Lohan, 24, that if she accepted a plea deal on the grand theft charge "this case does involve jail time. Period. If you plead in front of me and the case is resolved in front of me, you are going to jail, period." Lohan is accused of walking out of a Los Angeles jewellery store in January without paying for a $2,500 necklace. She pleaded not guilty at an initial hearing earlier in February. Schwartz did not give details of the plea deal offered to Lohan, nor indicate how much jail time prosecutors want her to serve. "I don't care that you are Lindsay Lohan versus John Doe," he told the "Mean Girls" actress sternly. "You will be treated exactly the same as anyone else, no better or worse." Lohan, dressed in cream pants and a low-cut black blouse, said nothing during Wednesday's hearing. If she rejects the plea deal offered by prosecutors, she will move ahead with a formal trial on the necklace theft charge, which would result in prison time if she was convicted. Lohan faces a separate court hearing before a different judge on Friday for her 2007 drunk driving and cocaine possession conviction, which has halted her once promising Hollywood movie career. She remains on probation for that conviction and in January completed a court-ordered stay in rehab - her fifth stint in treatment in three years. Schwartz said that if the jewellery theft charge is resolved in his court, he would recommend psychological counselling for Lohan as part of her sentence. "I don't want you to be a repeat offender," he told her. "I want you to get on with your life and move on." Lohan made her name as an 11-year-old in the Disney movie "The Parent Trap" and went on to have hits with "Freaky Friday" and "Herbie Fully Loaded".
