A Los Angeles judge has ruled a teenage member of the Hollywood burglary gang which targeted celebrity homes earlier this year (09) will stand trial for allegedly looting Orlando Bloom's property.
Judge Darrell Mavis rejected an argument that 18-year-old Alexis Neiers had no idea the home she and three pals allegedly raided in July (09) belonged to the British movie star.
The teen's attorney also told the court on Tuesday (01Dec09) his client never intended to commit a felony.
Another alleged member of the so-called Bling-Ring, Nicholas Prugo, 18, identified Neiers as one of four people seen on a security video entering Bloom's Hollywood Hills home.
Two other alleged members of the burglary gang, Diane Tamayo, 19, and Rachel Lee, 18, were also identified. Tamayo has been charged in the case.
