Alleged 'Bling Ring' Mastermind Pleads No Contest to Celebrity Break-ins
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KTLA) -- Rachel Lee, the accused mastermind of the so-called "bling ring" burglary group that targeted celebrities' homes has entered a plea of no contest in the burglary of Audrina Patridge's L.A. home.

Lee and her accomplices allegedly ransacked Audrina's home in 2009.

Lee is expected to be sentenced to 4 years in prison when she appears in court on October 21.

In January, Lee was charged with receiving stolen property and felony burglary involving the homes of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Audrina Patridge.

Lee, who is currently living in Las Vegas, and five other adults are suspected of taking high-end clothes and jewelry from the homes.

Alexis Christine Neiers, 18, of Thousand Oaks, was charged in connection with an early morning burglary at actor Orlando Bloom's house in Hollywood.

Also charged in the heist at Bloom's home is Nicholas Frank Prugo, 19, of Calabasas, who is also accused in burglaries targeting the homes of Hilton on Dec. 19, 2008, and Patridge on Feb. 23, 2009.

Prugo is also accused of burglarizing a residence belonging to Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox on Oct. 1, 2009.

Diana Tamayo, 19, of Newbury Park, is charged with break-ins at the homes of Lohan and Ashley Tisdale, whose house was burglarized on July 1, 2009.

Courtney Leigh Ames, 19, of Calabasas, and Roy Lopez Jr., 27, of Reseda, are charged along with Prugo and Lee in the burglary at Hilton's home.

Prosecutors allege that members of the group studied celebrity magazines and Web sites and picked out clothing and jewelry they wanted.

The crime spree netted more than $3 million in jewelry, designer clothes and accessories between December 2008 and last Oct. 11, according to the District Attorney's Office.
