A woman accused of trespassing on Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi’s Los Angeles property has been charged with a misdemeanour following her arrest on Thursday.
Security guards at the couple’s Beverly Hills compound found Karen Sjoden on the grounds of the stars’ home, although she never entered the residence and did not get close to either the comedienne or the actress.

Police took Sjoden into custody and the 49-year-old suspect was charged on Monday.

If convicted, the alleged intruder faces up to six months in jail, in addition to a fine of $1,000 .
