A leading member of Hollywood’s notorious ‘bling ring’ is facing four years behind bars after she was convicted of breaking into the home of reality TV star Audrina Patridge.
Rachel Lee struck a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded no contest to one count of residential burglary, relating to the February, 2009 break-in at Patridge’s Hollywood Hills property.

Lee was convicted in a Los Angeles court on Friday. She is expected to receive a four-year prison sentence when she next appears before a judge on 21 October.

The youngster was also suspected to be one of a group of youths involved in raids on homes belonging to Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan.
