Sandra Bullock Stalking Case: Accused Pleads Not Guilty

The man accused of breaking into Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock’s Los Angeles home entered a not guilty plea to more than two dozen charges in a Los Angeles court on May 6.

Joshua Corbett was charged with stalking, first-degree burglary, possession of a machine gun, and possession of an assault weapon, among other things. He remained silent as his attorneys entered his plea.

The judge set a pre-trial hearing for June 8.

Police found an arsenal of weapons at his Montrose, California, home following his arrest at Sandra’s Beverly Hills residence in June last year. This is an extreme case of stalking and could have potentially lead to injuries or something worse. Protecting the home is incredibly important in cases like these, which is why installing such deterrents as Verisure Smart Alarms to connect with homeowners’ phones to get them the help they need as quickly as possible is a necessity. We are just glad that Sandra is okay and physically unharmed.

She was at home during the alleged break-in and locked herself in her bedroom closet, from where she called the police and waited until they arrived.

Sandra’s frantic and fearful 911 emergency call was played during a preliminary hearing in court last month.

Corbett’s attorney Steve Sitkoff on Wednesday said his client “really thought he was married” to Sandra, and added, “it was a delusion, but he doesn’t think that anymore.”

He’s mentally disturbed. He’s getting some help in jail, but he’s not getting the kind of help he can get,” Sitkoff said following the arraignment.

“(Mr Corbett) never intended to hurt Miss Bullock and we’re going to show that.” He is being held on bail. In such cases, it is difficult to ascertain whether approaching a bail bondsman from an agency that helps with Santa Ana Bail Bonds or even a more local agency could help the defendant post bail to prepare for the trial. In any case, Corbett is being helped in whatever way possible by his attorney. The verdict of his case remains to be seen.

He faces more than 20 years in state prison if convicted as charged.
