Rachel Lee is cutting her losses.

The accused member of the celeb-fancying "Bling Ring" has pleaded no contest to one count of residential burglary in connection with a February 2009 break-in at Audrina Patridge's house.

In exchange for cutting the deal, charges of receiving stolen property and conspiracy to commit burglary will be dismissed. But Lee, who was also supposedly involved in plots concerning Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, could have a rough road ahead of her.

She faces up to four years in prison when she's sentenced on Oct. 21

Diana Tamayo, Roy Lopez Jr., Courtney Lee Ames and alleged burglary mastermind Nicholas Prugo are still scheduled to go to trial on multiple counts of felony burglary. They're all due in court Nov. 18 for a pretrial hearing.

Former Pretty Wild star Alexis Neiers served 30 days in jail for aiding a heist at Orlando Bloom's place, though she proclaimed her innocence after pleading no contest to burglary.

To help lock up the indictments, Patridge testified before a grand jury that she had returned home from being out, only to find a fully packed suitcase had been wheeled right out of there and her jewelry box was "wiped out."

"I locked myself in the closet," the Hills star said. "I called my sister, and I was like, 'You know what? I think someone broke into my house. I don't know where my luggage is...It just doesn't feel right.'"
