“Reality Show” for real?

"Reality" show for real

Alexis Neiers, who was accused of burglarizing Orlando Bloom’s Los Angeles home, pleaded no contest to felony burglary Monday, striking a deal with prosecutors shortly before her trial was slated to begin. “Ms. Neiers feels it’s in her best interest to take the people’s offer because of the amount of jail time that could possibly occur … and she wants to move on with her life,” her attorney, Jeffery Rubenstein, told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza (via E! News). 
Neiers is one of six people accused of targeting the homes of celebrities – Including those of Megan Fox, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan – and stealing millions in jewelry, clothing and other luxury items. The “Burglar Bunch” also includes Rachel Lee, 19; Nicholas Prugo, 19; Diana Tamayo, 20; Courtney Ames, 19; and Roy Lopez Jr., 28.
“It’s been a long road and Alexis is looking forward to moving on with her life,” Rubenstein said after today’s hearing. “After lengthy consideration and fighting the best pretrial fight we could, we decided it was in Alexis’ best interest to take responsibility for her small part in this incident and do a little bit of county jail time instead of a lengthy state prison sentence if convicted.”
Neiers avoided a hefty sentence – a felony burglary count could have netted her up to six years in prison. Neiers had previously pleaded not guilty for her role in the heist.
At any rate Alexis Neiers copped the plea offered by the L.A. District Attorney’s Office of three years of formal probation and 180 days in county jail, ABC News reports. She also agreed to stay away from Bloom and his home. She’s to report to jail on June 24 to begin her sentence. Well be waiting on June 24 to see if she actually does any time.
