LOS ANGELES — Britney Spears’s former husband was convicted Thursday of trespassing and assault after she showed up at the singer’s California home on the day she was getting married.
Jason Alexander, 40, pleaded not to challenge the two violations stemming from the June 9 incident in Ventura County, the district attorney’s office said.
He was sentenced to serve time; according to court records, he spent 64 days in jail.
Alexander, who was married to Spears for less than three days in 2004, appeared at the singer’s house on the day she was to marry Sam Asghari in June.
Prosecutors said he damaged a door and assaulted a security guard in the Thousand Oaks break-in. He was arrested by deputies of the Ventura County Sheriff.
Video broadcast live by Alexander on Instagram showed someone, allegedly Alexander, saying he was there to “crash” the wedding. Alexander cannot be seen in the video because it was shot from the recorder’s perspective.
The incident did not deter the wedding and Spears and Asghari were married that day.
A lawyer listed in court files as representing Alexander did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday night.
Alexander and Spears were married in Las Vegas in 2004. They were married for 55 hours before it was annulled.
A plea without contest means that a person pleads no guilt, but the judge has found him guilty and he has been convicted. Other counts were rejected by the court after the plea, the data shows.
A criminal protective order was issued to prevent Alexander from coming within 100 meters of Spears or the guard, the prosecutor’s office said.
