London: Lindsay Lohan has reportedly rejected a plea agreement offered by prosecutors in a case involving the theft of a 2,500-dollar necklace.

The agreement included a guaranteed return to jail.

The ‘Mean Girls’ star appeared in a courtroom and told a judge she agreed to delaying her case until an April 22 preliminary hearing, when prosecutors will present evidence against her, reports the Telegraph.

It was all Lohan said during the brief proceeding in Los Angeles.

Her decision came after Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz offered the actress another opportunity to resolve the case.

He said he had laid out to Lohan`s lawyer how he would sentence Lohan if she pleaded guilty or no contest to the theft of the necklace, and said she could accept his offer at a hearing on March 25.
