Burglar Bunch Ringleader

Sentenced to 4 Years in Prison

Rachel Lee
-- the mastermind behind the infamous Burglar Bunch gang -- has been sentenced to 4 years in prison ... for raiding Audrina Patridge's Hollywood Hills home back in 2009.

21-year-old Lee pleaded no contest to one count of first degree residential burglary last month ... after she was accused of entering Patridge's home through an unlocked door on the night of the Academy Awards.

Lee was accused of taking around $43k worth of items from the home -- including Audrina's passport, various pieces of jewelry, a laptop and designer jeans.

4 other members of the gang are still awaiting trial for allegedly taking part in burglarizing the homes of Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan between Sept. 2008 and August 2009.

Another fun fact -- Lee was sentenced to precisely the same prison term Conrad Murray will get if the book is thrown at him.

This poor girl. Who gives a **** about Audrina Patridge, nobody. Again, NOBODY!! She is ugly and disgusting riding coat tails for years among other rides she gave for free. This girl does not deserve anything less than praise for a break-in, Audrina broke into my TV for years and should get the death penalty for that.

Actually your article is incorrect, under the new AB109 bill, first degree residential burglary is a crime which specifically mandates the time will be served in the State Prison, actually serve time at a Prison run by the department of Corrections.

1st Degree Residential Burglary = 4 years in prison (or not)
Involuntary Manslaughter = 4 years in prison (or not)

Something is definitely wrong with these calculations.

Whats the point of sentencing someone to prison if they know they are only going to jail

Breaking into someone's home, even if no one is there, is violence. It is a violation of someone's feeling of well-being, of feeling safe in one's own home. She should be in state prison.

"Mastermind"?

More accurately, she is a small brain surrounded by smaller brains.
