Rusty Edward Sellner was arrested in January (15) and accused of stealing items belonging to the Wrecking Ball hitmaker and her brother from her Toluca Lake property 10 days before Christmas (Dec14).

He pleaded no contest to one count of first degree residential burglary in February (15) and on Wednesday (20May15), he was ordered to serve time behind bars.

However, the 22 year old, who has a record of burglary convictions and evading arrest, received credit for 270 days he has already served.

Another hearing will be held at a later date to determine how much restitution Sellner should pay to Cyrus.

The break-in was the third suffered by Cyrus at her Toluca Lake home, which she subsequently placed on the market for just under $6 million (£3.8 million). She recently purchased a horse ranch and vineyard in Hidden Hills, California.
