Former Britney Spears appears in court on stalking charges | entertainment news

VENTURA, California. (AP) — A California judge on Monday found that there is enough evidence against a man who once briefly married Britney Spears, who showed up uninvited at the pop star’s wedding to stand trial on stalking charges.

After a two-hour preliminary hearing, Ventura County Judge David Worley ruled that Jason Allen Alexander, 40, should be prosecuted on the charges, as well as counts of misdemeanor, vandalism and battery, court records showed.

A declaration of innocence on all counts was made by Alexander’s lawyer, who did not appear and remains in prison.

Spears married longtime boyfriend Sam Asgari at her home in Thousand Oaks, California on June 9 in front of dozens of guests including Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton and Madonna.

Alexander, Spears’ childhood friend to whom she was married for less than three days in 2004, showed up at the house uninvited ahead of the ceremony, live-streaming his raid on Instagram.

Richard Ubler, Spears’ recently fired bodyguard, verified at Monday’s hearing that Alexander broke into her home and climbed up to Spears’ locked bedroom door while she was inside, according to multiple media reports.

Ubler said Alexander also tried to break into the grounds days before the wedding.

Alexander’s lawyer Sandra Bisignani argued that there was no evidence that he intended to harm Spears.
