Man Accused of Stalking Sandra Bullock Pleads Not Guilty
LOS ANGELES, May 7, 2015 (UPI) — A man charged with stalking Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock pleaded not guilty to 26 charges in court Wednesday.
Joshua Corbett, 39, was arrested inside Bullock’s Beverly Hills home last June and appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom for the first time since it was decided that he should stand trial.
Corbett apparently stalked the 50-year-old Gravity actress and was apprehended after she alerted 911 of the intruder in a 15-minute call.
A black notebook filled with photos of the star and a two-page love letter was found on the trespasser at the time of his arrest.
The letter reportedly describes Bullock as his “girl” and himself as her “husband.”
“You are very special to me and without you in my life there is only misery,” it read.
Authorities also uncovered a collection of illegal weapons at Corbett’s home, including a machine gun, BBC reports. He faces more than 20 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
In attempts of defending Corbett, his lawyer admitted that the criminal was “mentally disturbed,” and “really thought he was married” to the actress, “but doesn’t think that anymore.”
