The teen reality TV star sentenced to serve jail time for her part in a heist at Orlando Bloom's Hollywood Hills home agreed to plead guilty after learning the actor was keen to testify in court. "Pretty Wild" star Alexis Neiers insists she's innocent even though she's officially a convicted felon.

As part of a plea bargain with prosecutors, the 18 year old accepted a charge of first-degree residential burglary, and learned she would be serving a six-month prison term. But now Neiers tells E! News, "I didn't do anything wrong. I thought we were going to trial and we had a great shot at this. I had been so confident because I had thought up until this point that I didn't do anything wrong."

But her attorney Jeffery Rubenstein reveals his client had a "limited role" in the burglary and admits the plea was due in large part to Bloom's willingness to testify against Neiers, who was seen on surveillance video entering Bloom's Hollywood Hills home last summer.

Neiers previously insisted she was drunk at the time and was unaware that she was involved in a break-in and burglary.

Alexis maybe a bad girl, but I'am sure she got a good side, to it's just hard to find. I'm a huge fan of her and love her but she do deseves sometime in jail for the wrong she did. I hope she learns her lesson and never do nothing like that again.

And being drunk makes you innocent HOW? Being intoxicated on alcohol (or drugs) has never been a legal defense for any crime.

Obvious railroad job stemming over from the Paris Hilton incident.

I do not know but I think the legal age for drinking is 21? Her defense is that she was drunk at 18! Hello Mom or step Dad. Who is a little too touchy?

What a disgusting show E has hit an all time low with Pretty Wild. Felon spoiled obnoxious rich girls famous for what. Horribly sad. People that like train wrecks will definately watch this show, I laughed so hard at the one episode where she was hysterical about a reporter getting the shoes wrong that she wore, that was what was important to her, so shallow and clueless it will live you specchless. Mom is biggest joke, she was acting ridiculous, swearing and carrying on, very sad.

I wish Mom realized parenting is crucial, not being cool and turning a blind eye to who your daughter is...someone who can't admit fault - cautionary tale - spoiled, lawless uneducated girl - hope she learns from jail - since parenting isn't occuring in the home!
