The prosecutors trying to nab Winona on felony drug charges have realised it'll never stand up in court (apparently buying a cheaper version of prescription drugs is not actually a felony after all). They're still going all out (ie. felony grand theft and vandalism) for her alleged shoplifting of $4000+ of store goods. To repeat the relevant bit from the Slate article last week:
... of all 5,000 grand theft felony cases filed in Los Angeles County last year, not one defendant was facing penalties as harsh as Ryder's. In fact, in all cases involving theft exceeding the amount alleged in Ryder's case, the defendants received standard misdemeanor plea deals. The district attorney's office has refused to accept a plea for anything less than a felony in Ryder's case.
It's really starting to look like someone at the L.A. district attorney's office really wants to take down a celebrity. At the moment, it's unclear what the penalty for the remaining charges would be.
