Sandra Bullock’s Home Intruder Convicted Of Felony Stalking
The man who broke into Sandra Bullock’s home has been has been ordered to stay away from the actress for 10 years after pleading no contest to felony stalking and burglary charges in connection with the 2014 incident.
Joshua James Corbett entered the no contest plea without having an agreement for sentencing with prosecutors, according to Fox News. He was also sentenced to mental health treatment and probation as part of the deal.
Corbett reportedly stalked the Oscar-winning actress from outside of her home for days before hopping the fence to her house in June of 2014. After ringing her doorbell for several minutes, the stalker broke into the house and a frightened Bullock was forced to hide in a closet while she called the police.
The 52-year-old actress never had to appear in court for the case because a recording of her frantic 15-minute phone call with 911 was evidence enough for the judge to order the stalker to stand trial, Fox News reports.
Luckily, the “Gravity” actress won’t have to worry about Corbett for a long time.
