Lindsay Lohan completed a court-ordered 90-day rehab stint last month, but she was warned in court yesterday that she'll be sent to prison if she accepts a plea bargain related to a theft charge.

A source told website PopEater: “I'm not sure if she can survive this. She is so terrified and frightened that we all fear her addictions will kick in again to help her numb the fear.”

The actress is accused of stealing a necklace worth $2,500 from upmarket Californian boutique Kamofie & Company.

Though Lindsay has repeatedly denied the allegation -- insisting the item was loaned to her in exchange for publicity -- she has been offered a plea bargain deal, in which she is believed to be expected to serve just eight months in jail in exchange for pleading guilty.

The 24-year-old actress must decide whether to accept the deal or plead not guilty and take the case to trial by the time of her next hearing, which has been set for March 10.

Lindsay, who is free on $40,000 bail, was also warned by Judge Schwartz if she pleads guilty or no contest to the charge then he could rule that she is in violation of her earlier DUI order.

Lindsay’s parents Dina and Michael supported their daughter at her hearing yesterday, despite a restraining order in place banning the showbiz patriarch from going near his ex-wife.

Michael told RadarOnline.com: “We just want to be there for her, but to be there with Dina and the kids, to show our support as a family.

“The restraining order is in effect, it’s been seven years and in effect for five more months, but it doesn’t matter.

“At a time like this when the public needs to see and the court needs to see her family come together for her. Because that’s one of her biggest problems, she has a broken heart and she filled that crack in her broken heart that came from our divorce with all the wrong things.

“Parents have to put their differences aside for their children.”
