Selena Gomez's Frequent Trespasser Is Charged...This Time With A Felony
The same man who tried to break into her property only days apart is now facing up to four years in prison.
Police were called to Selena Gomez's Calabasas, Calif., home last Friday (April 4th) after they were alerted a suspicious looking man had jumped over her fence.
Astonishingly, this man is the same person who was arrested on March 31st for entering Gomez's guest house bathroom.
The trespasser, identified as Che Cruz, appeared in court last Wednesday (April 2nd), and was charged with one count of misdemeanour trespassing and sentenced to 45 days in county jail after pleading no contest.
He rang the doorbell of Gomez's home in the evening (March 31st) and asked if Gomez was in.
The 'Come & Get It' singer's friend, who answered the door, told Cruz that she wasn't and he left, but when authorities arrived at the house they found him hidden in Selena's guest house, after allegedly breaking in.
But after being released early on Friday, which isn't unusual for nonviolent offenders because jail space is ideally reserved for violent criminals, Che returned to the singer's property.
However, this time he has been charged with a much more serious offence.
TMZ reports, Che has been charged with felony stalking and violating a criminal order of protection, if found guilty he could face up to a much longer period behind bars, but it could also be changed to a misdemeanour, in which case he would likely not have to serve any jail time.
According to the LA County District Attorney's Office, Che is facing up to four years in prison, and his bail was set at $150, 000.
This isn't the first time a crazed fan has been caught trespassing on the 'Stars Dance' hit maker's home.
Police arrested another man, 19 year-old Juan Garcia, this past January (25th) at her Fernando Valley's Tarzana area home after family members spotted him creeping close to the house.
The following month, Garcia was charged with trespassing and ordered to spend 120 days at the Los Angeles County Jail, he was also placed on three years' probation and told to stay at least 150 yards away from Gomez and her home for the duration of his punishment.
It isn't clear if Gomez was home at the time of both incidents
