Sandra Bullock’s ‘safe door’

April 10, 2015

The charges against Joshua Corbett, who broke into Sandra Bullock's home last June, include burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun. They encompass the events of a night that led Bullock to lock herself in her bedroom closet and call 911. The call was played for the jury in court this week, who heard her shakily tell the 911 operator that someone had begun banging on her bedroom door, which, for what  it was worth, was a "safe door." Reuters reports that Corbett could face up to 20 years in prison.
