Brad Pitt Stalker Faces Hearing

November 9, 1999 GMT

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ A woman who climbed into actor Brad Pitt’s home in January faces a hearing next week to determine whether she violated her probation by failing to finish court-ordered counseling sessions.

Athena Marie Rolando, 20, said in court Monday that she can’t afford the sessions. The Billings, Mont., native was ordered to undergo at least a year of psychological counseling after pleading no contest to misdemeanor trespassing in February. Prosecutors say she has attended only four sessions.

She faces up to six months in jail if the judge finds she violated terms of her probation. A hearing is set for Nov. 15.

Rolando climbed into Pitt’s Hollywood Hills home through a rear window on Jan. 7 while the actor was away. A caretaker found her wearing Pitt’s clothes and sleeping in an upstairs bedroom.
