-- a member of the infamous Burglar Bunch -- pled no contest today for her role in burglarizing the home of Lindsay Lohan
and was placed on three years probation, but will not have to serve any additional jail time.
Tamayo was sentenced to 10 days in county jail, but got credit for time served. She was also ordered to perform 60 days of roadside trash duty.
A hearing is set for November 8 to determine how much restitution Tamayo has to pay.
Tamayo faired much better than her other cohorts -- "Pretty Wild" star Alexis Neiers was sentenced to 180 days
behind bars (she only served less than a month) and the alleged mastermind, Rachel Lee
, got four years
in jail.Nick Prugo
pled no contest last month for his part in the crime spree and will be sentenced next month. The remaining members, Roy Lopez, Jr.
and Courtney Ames
, are due in court next month.
Lohan's home was broken into
back in May 2009 and it was all caught on video
defendant Roy Lopez Jr.
claims the cop who investigated him in the Paris Hilton
burglary case sacrificed his credibility for a shot at fame -- by playing himself in the "Bling Ring
" movie -- and now, Roy wants his case dismissed.
Roy just filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court, asking a judge to dismiss the charges against him because Detective Brett Goodkin
appears -- as himself -- in the upcoming movie about the string of celebrity burglaries.
Roy says Goodkin was also paid to serve as a "consultant" on the film.
In the legal docs, Lopez says Goodkin's involvement in the movie "creates an extreme conflict of interest" -- claiming, "To portray himself for the film and recreating his interaction with the defendants is extremely inappropriate and crushes the due process rights of the remaining defendants."
Lopez calls Goodkin's conduct "outrageous" -- and adds, "Any Hollywood embellishing on the part of the Detective as to what the defendants may or may not have done creates extreme credibility issues as to what actually occurred in the case."
Lopez wants all charges dropped against him. A judge has yet to rule.
Bling Ring leader Nick Prugo
is rotting away behind bars right now because his parents discovered his secret drug habit and were so PISSED ... they sent him back to jail, TMZ has leaned.
As TMZ first reported, Nick's parents revoked his $200k bail bond
last week, forcing him back into the slammer.
Sources close to Nick tell us the real reason his parents bailed on bail is that they discovered Nick was using copious amounts of drugs and decided the best course of action was to axe his temporary freedom.
According to our sources, ever since Nick found out he was jail bound ... his life has been a giant, downward spiral of drug use and even a Xanax-fueled suicide attempt.
Currently Nick is set to serve a two-year sentence starting in May.
Screw Disneyland. The happiest place on earth is the Inmate Reception Center at the L.A. County Jail ... at least judging by the smile on Burglar Bunch mastermind Nick Prugo
Nicky-boy was all grins after his dad cancelled his bail
this weekend, causing the bail bondsman to hook him up and take him where he will belong for the next 2 years -- the slammer.
Nick's dad had put his house up as collateral to make bail, but apparently he got into a nuclear argument with his son and decided to ... bail.
is back behind bars today after his bond was revoked by his own parents ... TMZ has learned.
Prugo pled no contest last month for his role in the Burglar Bunch
crime spree and was expected to serve 2 years behind bars. He was out on bond until his next court date in May.
According to our sources, Prugo's bond was put up by his parents, who used their house as collateral. We're told Prugo's dad -- after some sort of argument took place between them -- called VIP Bail Bonds this morning and told them he wanted the bond revoked.
So Prugo was booked and will remain behind bars until May ... unless someone else ponies up his $200,000 bond. Don't hold your breath.
Suspected Burglar Bunch thief Nick Prugo
has pleaded no contest to jacking expensive stuff from the homes of Lindsay Lohan
and Audrina Patridge
... and told prosecutors he's totally willing to throw his fellow suspects under the bus.
21-year-old Prugo cut a plea deal ... in which he's expected to serve 2 years in state prison for the Hollywood Hills crime spree.
In exchange for the plea, prosecutors agreed to drop other charges related to burglaries at the homes of Orlando Bloom

Prugo also agreed to testify against three other people who allegedly participated in the crime spree.
Prugo is due back in court on May 4 to make it official.

According to our sources, Coppola is developing a film based on the infamous Burglar Bunch. We're told the film, which would be produced by daddy Francis' Zoetrope studio, does not have a start date or even a script yet.
Sources close to the project tell TMZ ... producers approached Burgler Buncher Nick Prugo
about being a consultant on the film, but he declined. We're told Tess Taylor
, sister of Buncher Alexis Neiers
, has now signed on to the project.
Calls to Coppola were not returned.
-- 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.
-- the mastermind of the Burglar Bunch
gang that terrorized numerous Hollywood celebs -- has pled no contest in the burglary of Audrina Patridge
's L.A. home.
Lee and the bunch allegedly ransacked Audrina's home in 2009. Although Lee did not cop a plea in the other cases, as TMZ first reported, the Burglar Bunch also allegedly hit the homes of Orlando Bloom
, Paris Hilton
, Lindsay Lohan
and Megan Fox
Lee is expected to be sentenced to 4 years in prison when she appears in court on October 21.
Ironic ... Burglar Bunch
suspect Nick Prugo
doesn't like people borrowing from him -- in fact, he tells TMZ he plans to sue over the new "Bling Ring" movie ... claiming Lifetime STOLE his likeness for profit.
Nick tells us, “I had no prior knowledge of this and am not affiliated in any way. I want to sue if possible. I’m in touch with my attorneys right now.”
He adds, "I just read the sides for my supposed part. I had to laugh. It's total fiction. They are filming somewhere this weekend for a club scene in Los Angeles. Maybe I'll drop by and surprise them."
But not everyone's pissed -- fellow BB suspect Tess Taylor
tells us, she's best suited to act in the made-for-TV movie ... because she knows the truth ... "Where is the casting? I want to audition for a role."
So far, the "Bling Ring" movie doesn't have an official release date -- but you can expect to catch it later this summer.
It's the one thing the Burglar Bunch
hasn't stolen ... your TV time ... but that's about to change ... because a made-for-TV movie about the infamous thieves
is already in production.
A rep for Lifetime
tells TMZ, the wheels are in motion for a movie called "Bling Ring
" -- which chronicles a group of teens in 2009 who pilfer $3 million in cash and jewelry ... from celebs like Paris Hilton
, Lindsay Lohan
, and Orlando Bloom
. The flick is being produced by Silver Screen Pictures
But don't expect to hear the names Nick Prugo
, Rachel Lee
, and Alexis Neiers
in the flick -- we're told the burglars' real names had to be changed for "legal reasons."
And get this -- "Dirty Dancing
" star Jennifer Grey
will take a lead role as the mother of the Prugo character.
The movie should be on TV in late summer.
