The man who allegedly tried to break into Taylor Swift‘s apartment is now facing two to four years behind bars after cutting a plea deal.
Roger Alvarado pled to criminal contempt, reports Page Six, and agreed to an order of protection in exchange for his sentence. He will be sentenced later this month.
Alvardo allegedly swiped a ladder from a construction site and used it to climb up the side of Swift’s Manhattan apartment building. He then smashed a glass door, which was observed on camera by Swift’s security detail, who called 911.
Taylor Swift was not home at the time of the incident.
This was the second time Alvardo broke into the home. He served six months behind bars for doing the same thing in 2018. The second incident took place one month after his release.
Swift recently settled a lawsuit over the purchase of the home Alvarado is accused of breaking into.
As The Blast first reported, big-time real estate company Douglas Elliman sued Taylor Swift’s Firefly Entertainment, claiming they got screwed out of the commission when Swift purchased the New York townhouse in 2017.
They claimed Swift “wrongfully excluded” them from the $18 million sale and sued for $1,080,000 in the unpaid commission they believe they are owed.
A federal court judge ruled in January that Swift had no obligation to pay commission to the agent.
