Selena Gomez home trespasser charged with stalking, violating order

A homeless man convicted of trespassing at Selena Gomez's home was charged Monday with stalking and violating a court order to stay away from the former Disney star.

The charges filed against Che Cruz come just days after he pleaded no contest to trespassing at Gomez's home, after which he was sentenced to 45 days in Los Angeles County jail and ordered to stay away from the star's home.

Cruz, 20, was arrested March 30 inside a bathroom of a guest house on the property being purchased by Gomez, 21, authorities said.

Cruz had initially tried to enter the main house before he managed to get to the back of the property and gain access to the guest house, according to authorities.

A security company was alerted, and Cruz was found in the guest house, authorities said. He was taken into custody by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies.

If convicted of the latest charges, Cruz faces up to four years in state prison, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.
