UPDATED 2.20 PM EST:  America’s favorite hot mess, Lindsay Lohan will be charged with felony grand theft Wedensday, the DA"S office says.  The single count of felony grand theft will be filed at Airport Court in L.A. Wednesday morning. Lindsay will be arraigned at 1:30 PM PST.  She must be present for the hearing.

LINDSAY LOHAN has been complaining to friends and family that she’s been targeted by a prosecutor in the District Attorney’s office as a lynch pin to an election.

And, according to a source, Lindsay is convinced the prosecutor is "out to get me and is trying to use me so she can get elected."  confirmed that Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers, who is overseeing Lindsay’s probation DUI case, will likely file the felony grand theft complaint against Lohan, 24, sometime this week.

The charge relates to the allegation that Lohan stole a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store in Venice Beach, CA.

Lindsay’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holly, met with Meyers on Monday to buy another day of freedom — and maybe more — for Lindsay.

"Lindsay’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley had a very productive meeting with DDA Meyers. Shawn had to leave town overnight for business, and it’s unlikely that Danette would charge Lindsay while Shawn was out of town.

Meyers denied  Lindsay’s claim that the D.A.’s office is targeting her, "The D.A.’s Office has been fair and compassionate in prosecuting Ms. Lohan on her DUI. The same fairness and justice will be applied in determining whether or not to file charges in the present manner. I think her lawyer would agree with this statement.

"I believe justice was administered fairly and equitably."
