Jason Alexander, Britney Spears' ex-husband, pleads no contest to trespassing, battery

·2 min read

Jason Alexander, ex-husband of pop star Britney Spears, was found guilty of criminal charges stemming from his uninvited appearance at Spears' home during her wedding in June.

Alexander, 40, pleaded no contest Thursday to aggravated trespassing and battery, both misdemeanors, according to the Ventura County District Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors dropped charges of felony stalking and misdemeanor vandalism.

Alexander was arrested at Spears' residence on June 9 after he showed up uninvited during her wedding celebration that day, when she married longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari.

He got inside the house and up to the locked door of Spears' bedroom when she was inside getting ready for the wedding, according to testimony at a preliminary hearing.

Alexander was confronted by a security guard who tried to remove him from the premises. He battered the guard and also damaged a door during his attempt to enter the home, authorities said.

According to online court documents, Alexander was credited with time served for the 64 days he spent in Ventura County jail since the arrest. He was also issued a criminal protective order prohibiting him from coming within 100 yards of both victims.

"We're happy with the result," said Erin Meister, the supervising deputy DA who prosecuted the case.

"The defendant accepted responsibility for what he did on June 9 — he ended up spending two months in jail — and the victims' priority was the protective order," Meister said.

Alexander’s attorney, Sandra Bisignani, did not immediately reply to an email from The Associated Press seeking comment. She previously said in court that there was no evidence he had any intention of harming Spears.

Spears' lawyer also declined comment to AP.
