LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has sentenced a woman to four years in prison for breaking into the home of reality television starlet Audrina Patridge.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Larry Fidler sentenced Rachel Lee on Tuesday. The 21-year-old pleaded no contest last month to one count of felony residential burglary for the February 2009 break-in at Patridge's home in the Hollywood Hills.

She is one of the members of the so-called "Bling Ring," who targeted the homes of celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and others. Four other defendants are awaiting trial.

Lee was accused of taking more than $25,000 in jewelry, designer luggage, and clothing from Patridge's home. A district attorney's statement says a later hearing will determine how much restitution she will have to pay.
