VENTURA, Calif. (AP) — A man who was briefly married to Britney Spears has been convicted of aggravated trespassing and assault at the pop star’s wedding in June.

Jason Alexander, 40, did not contest both charges in California court, Ventura County prosecutors said Thursday. The Ventura County judge sentenced him to the 64 days he has already served in jail.

Prosecutors dropped charges of stalking and vandalism.

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

Alexander, a childhood friend of Spears who she was married to for less than three days in 2004, appeared uninvited ahead of the ceremony during an Instagram live stream.

He entered the house and approached the locked door to Spears’ bedroom as she prepared for the wedding, according to testimony at a preliminary hearing.

Alexander refused to leave the property when told, beat up a security guard who tried to pull him away and damaged a door, prosecutors said.

After pleading, a judge issued a new protective order prohibiting him from coming within 100 yards of Spears or the security guard.

Alexander’s lawyer, Sandra Bisignani, did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment. She previously said in court that there was no evidence he intended to harm Spears.

Spears’ attorney declined to comment.
