One of the co-defendants in the highly publicized celebrity burglary case, known as the ‘Bling Ring, has pleaded no contest to her single charge.

21-year-old Rachel Lee, along with Nicholas Prugo, Diana Tamayo, Courtney Leigh Ames and Roy Lopez Jr. used celebrity websites like TMZ to locate Hollywood homes and rob them blind.

Prosecutors claim Lee broke into former The Hills’ star Audrina Patridge’s home and made off with millions in jewelery and clothes. She faces four years in jail for her burglary charge. Her co-defendants are expected to go to trial early next year.

Ironically, Lifetime is premiering their mini-movie loosely based around the crimes, titled The Bling Ring.

The five burglars have also been accused of breaking into the homes of Orlando Bloom, Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson, Brian Austin-Green and Megan Fox.
