LOS ANGELES – A man convicted of attempting to burglarize Paris Hilton's home has been sentenced to two years in state prison.
City News Service reported that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Kellogg also recommended during Wednesday's hearing that Nathan Lee Parada undergo mental health counseling.
A jury took less than an hour in April to convict the 32-year-old of felony attempted residential burglary for trying to break into Hilton's house in August.
The socialite testified during Parada's trial about being awoken early Aug. 24 to the sound of Parada banging on Hilton's window with a knife. Parada told a detective he planned to steal as much as he could carry and move to a deserted island.
His defense attorney argued that Parada had not taken antidepressant medication for days before his arrest.
