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.

Love the boo-boo face. Unfortunately, this is something she will have to live with all of her life. Too bad she didn't think about what she was doing and the penalty first.

If you're a female criminal, move to Cali. They will just give you a slap on the wrist. Go rob all the Cali rich people you want!

Residential Burglary is a serious felony which means she WILL go to state prison. The new sentencing laws in CA will not effect her.

Really? I suppose the sentencing isn't in any way effected by the fact that the "victims" were "celebrities, right? I'm not down playing the crime because that's just insanity but being a celebrity in this country gets you everything and for the hard working people who ACTUALLY make differences in peoples lives, nope we get the damn book. ::wtf::

Had her name been Tanisha or Tawanda, she would have had a wing in the pokey named after her, because that's how many years she would have been given.
