Virginia woman charged with trespassing in Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's house

A 26-year-old Virginia woman has been charged with trespassing after entering actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Calabasas home and refusing to leave, prosecutors said.

A housekeeper found Ariel Archer, of Richmond, Va., in the Smiths’ kitchen on March 21, and she refused to leave, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office. The family was away from the house at the time.

Archer has been charged with one misdemeanor count of trespassing and refusing to leave private property, according to the complaint filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on June 18.

She is expected to be arraigned Monday in Van Nuys.

Archer faces a possible maximum sentence of six months in jail or a $1,000 fine.

Ricardo Santiago, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office, said Archer was escorted off the property and given a citation. Archer was not in custody before her court hearing Monday, Santiago said.
