Sandra Bullock Break-In Suspect Charged With Stalking, Appears in Court
A man who allegedly broke into actress Sandra Bullock’s Los Angeles home was charged with stalking and possession of a machine gun and appeared in court on Tuesday.
Joshua James Corbett, 39, of Montrose pleaded not guilty in a criminal courtroom in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon.
He allegedly climbed a fence to get onto Bullock’s property in the 1200 block of Angelo Drive in the Beverly Crest area about 5 a.m. Sunday, when Bullock was at home.
Police responded to a 911 “hot prowl” call and arrested Corbett.
He was charged with one felony count each of first-degree residential burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun, which he did not have at the time of the alleged crime, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Corbett faces up to seven years, four months in state prison.
As requested by the prosecutor, Corbett’s bail was set at $185,000 for the protection of the public, the judge said.
A protective order for Bullock was issued by the judge requiring Corbett to stay more than 200 yards away from her, among other restrictions.
Corbett was ordered to appear in court again on July 2 for a preliminary hearing setting conference.
