LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors say a man charged with trespassing at Selena Gomez’s home has been sentenced to 45 days in jail and ordered to stay away from the singer-actress.

Los Angeles district attorney’s spokesman Ricardo Santiago says Che Cruz admitted trespassing at an initial court appearance Wednesday and was immediately sentenced.

Cruz was arrested Sunday in Gomez’s guesthouse and was charged Wednesday with one count of misdemeanor trespassing.

Santiago says Cruz was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to stay away from Gomez and her home in Calabasas (cal-uh-BASS‘-us), Calif.

Authorities say Gomez arrived home Sunday night and called security after hearing noises on the property.

Gomez rose to fame as the star of the TV series “Wizards of Waverly Place.”

Police detectives and prosecutors around the U.S. say that despite being banned in all 50 states, the ancient blood sport of dogfighting is thriving in the underground, with hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake on big matches. The spotlight of NFL star Michael Vick’s 2007 case helped create more interest from police and federal investigators: the three largest dogfighting busts in U.S. history have occurred since 2009. But state laws still require no minimum mandatory jail time, so while arrests and convictions can be disruptive to dogfighting rings for a short while, the practice continues to flourish.
