    Time for a Lindsay Lohan update!

    Remember that gold necklace case, and how the actress was charged with grand theft felony?

    Well, since Judge Stephanie Sautner's recent decision to kick the felony charge down to a misdemeanor, the case will be turned over to the Los Angeles City Attorney tomorrow.

    "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 City Attorney's Office,'' said Sandi Gibbons of the District Attorney's Office.

    City attorney spokesperson Frank Mateljan tells E! News that they were told this would happen, but have yet to receive a copy of the case.

    Although Sautner sided with defense attorney Shawn Holley in reducing the charge, Lohan's probation violation didn't go unnoticed.

    The starlet was sentenced 120 days in jail, in which she was released hours later on bail.

    But LiLo still has to perform 360 hours of community service at the Downtown Women's Center and 120 hours of service at the Los Angeles County Morgue which is supposed to start sometime this week.
