Sandra Bullock Home Invader Charged

The alleged stalker has been charged with burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun

A man accused of breaking and entering into Sandra Bullock’s home on Sunday faces criminal charges of burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Wendy Segall said Joshua James Corbett, 39, climbed a fence and broke into the actress’ home around 1 a.m. on June 8. Police responded to an emergency call from within the house, where Bullock was said to be home at the time of the break-in.

Prosecutors also charged Corbett with illegal possession of a machine gun, but said that he was not carrying the weapon at the time of his arrest.

Corbett faces a maximum prison sentence of 7 years and 4 months.
