Man Charged with Breaking into Bullock’s Home
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors have field felony burglary and stalking charges against a man accused of breaking in to Sandra Bullock’s house while the Oscar-winning actress was at home.
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office charged Joshua James Corbett on Tuesday, two days after he was arrested. Police say he jumped the fence at Bullock’s Los Angeles home around 1 a.m. and broke into her house.
The 39-year-old was also charged with felony possession of a machine gun, although prosecutors say he did not have the gun while on Bullock’s property.
Corbett is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday. He remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail, but prosecutors are asking to increase that amount to $185,000.
If convicted, he faces up to seven years and four months in prison.
