18-year-old party girl Alexis Neiers may be the star of the E! reality show Pretty Wild, but her life isn’t exactly charmed. Neiers was accused of burglarizing Orlando Bloom’s home last year, and has been sentenced to six months in jail.
Neiers pleaded no contest to felony burglary following the news that Bloom was prepared to testify in her case. Neiers was part of a group of teens who allegedly tracked celebrities (including Bloom, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan), broke into their homes and stole their property. The group is known as the “Bling Ring” in the press.
“The weight of Bloom’s [potential] testimony made us realize that the odds were stacked against us,” Jeffery Rubenstein, Neiers’s attorney, said. “We decided it was in Alexis’s best interest for her to take responsibility for her limited role in this case and do her time. She’s looking forward to moving on with her life.”
Prison will undoubtedly be a wake-up call for Neiers, who didn’t seem to understand the severity of her situation when she was profiled by Nancy Jo Sales for Vanity Fair earlier this year.
Neiers was senteneced six months in jail, followed by three years probation. Her sentence will begin on June 24.
