Lindsay Lohan will consider a plea bargain if it keeps her out of jail, according to reports.

Lohan pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a charge of grand theft.

She's accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store in Venice.

Lohan's lawyer told CNN her client would consider a plea deal to stay out of jail.

Lohan could be sent back to jail even before the resolution of the theft charge if a judge decides she violated probation on a drunk driving conviction.

The actress tweeted Thursday she just wants to get back to work.

"I just want to be on set again, and left alone to just work! fyi- i would never steal, in case people are wondering. I was not raised to lie, cheat, or steal... also, what i wear to court shouldnt be front page news. it's just absurd. god bless xox L," Lohan wrote.
