Man convicted of trying to break into Paris Hilton's home is sentenced to prison

June 29, 2011 |  6:18 pm

A man convicted of residential burglary for attempting to break into Paris Hilton’s Mulholland Estates home last summer was sentenced Wednesday to two years in prison.

Van Nuys Superior Court Judge Michael Kellogg also ordered that Nathan Lee Parada receive mental health counseling while in prison.

In April, jurors deliberated less than hour before convicting Parada, 32. LAPD officers arrested him in the gated community Aug. 24 after Hilton and her then-boyfriend reported a strange man trying to get into her home. Soon afterward, Hilton took to her Twitter account to post: “just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big (knives). Cops are here arresting him."

Because Parada has already served 10 months in county jail, he is expected to be out in less than a year.
