Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus can rest easier.

The 40-year-old man convicted of trespassing on the starlet's San Fernando Valley property last month, a pair of scissors in hand, was sentenced today to 18 months in jail after refusing an offer of probation, E! News has confirmed.

A jury also found Jason Luis Rivera, who told police when he was arrested in the early morning hours of Sept. 8 that he was married to Cyrus, guilty of resisting arrest. Both charges were misdemeanors.

Cyrus wasn't home for Rivera's ill-conceived attempt at ingratiating himself to his dream wife, but another person on the property called the cops.

He has been behind bars since his arrest.
