Sandra Bullock’s stalker pleads no contest to felonies, sentenced to probation

A man who broke into Sandra Bullock’s Los Angeles home and forced the Oscar winner to hide in a closet has been sentenced to serve five years on probation.
Joshua James Corbett, 41, pleaded no contest to a pair of felonies on Wednesday (24May17).
He was ordered to continue treatment at a mental health facility, and told to stay away from the actress and her family for 10 years.
He pleaded no contest to one count each of stalking and first-degree residential burglary.
The scared The Blind Side star called the police from a closet in her bedroom, telling a dispatcher a stranger was in her home when Corbett broke in back in 2014. The tape of the 911 call was played in court.
Cops raced to the actress’ home and took her intruder into custody.
Corbett, who climbed a fence to gain access to the star’s property before dawn, was carrying photos of the actress and a letter he had written to her. He was not armed but police detectives found weapons at his converted garage home.
