Joshua James Corbett, 41, of Montrose entered the no contest plea to one felony count each of stalking and first-degree residential burglary, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office announced Wednesday.

He was immediately sentenced to five years of formal probation and continued treatment at a mental health facility, the D.A.’s office reported.

Prosecutors said at about 5 a.m. on June 8, 2014, Corbett scaled a fence to get onto Bullock’s property in the 1200 block of Angelo Drive in the Beverly Crest area and broke in while she was inside.

Officers responded to a 911 call placed by Bullock and found Corbett inside her home. He was immediately arrested.

On Wednesday the judge also issued a 10-year protective order requiring Corbett to stay more than 200 yards away from the actress.
