Man convicted in Cyrus case
Man convicted in Cyrus' case

A Los Angeles jury has convicted a man of misdemeanour trespassing at the home of Miley Cyrus.

The panel on Thursday also found Jason Luis Rivera guilty of resisting arrest after he was caught at the actress and singer's home. The 40-year-old's sentencing is scheduled for Friday.

Rivera has been jailed since his arrest September 8, when authorities say he was caught at Cyrus' home carrying a pair of scissors.

Police say Rivera told them he was a friend of the singer-actress and repeatedly threw himself against an outside wall as if trying to break in.

Cyrus, who is engaged to Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth, wasn't home during the incident.

A phone message left for Rivera's court-appointed lawyer was not immediately returned.
