Local News in Brief : Cher’s Boyfriend Pleads No Contest

Cher’s boyfriend pleaded no contest Tuesday to two counts of vandalism for smashing a photographer’s camera equipment outside the Benedict Canyon home of the Oscar-winning actress.

Attorney John Forbes entered the plea on behalf of Rob Camilletti, 24, who was not in court, Deputy City Atty. Renee Laurents said.

Camilletti, a former New York bagel maker, pizza chef and bartender, faces up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine when he is sentenced March 14.

The charges stem from an incident last July in which Camilletti had a run-in with free-lance photographers who were staking out Cher’s home. Camilletti was accused of trying to run photographer Peter Brandt down in a Ferrari and damaging his camera equipment.
