Sandra Bullock will be heading to court next month to testify against a man who told her that he loved her. That man is Joshua Corbett, and he is accused of stalking and breaking into Sandra Bullock’s home last year.
Jurors have already heard the taped 911 call that Sandra Bullock made from her home in June of last year. She had a scary conversation with a 911 dispatcher for 15 minutes while waiting for police to arrest the man who was stalking her.
A panicked Bullock can be heard telling the dispatcher that she was home alone and had heard a noise outside.
“I thought it was a wind blowing,” Bullock said. “Then I saw the person.”
Prosecutors intend to show that they have the goods on Joshua Corbett. Corbett is charged with stalking Sandra Bullock and breaking into her home that night in June. He also faces weapons charges for illegal firearms he possessed at his home.
The 911 tape reveals the fear the actress felt as she cowered in a safe-door protected closet in her bedroom.
“I’m in my closet. I have a safe door,” Sandra Bullock told the 911 dispatcher. “I’m locked in the closet right now.”
When police arrived, they found Corbett with a black notebook that contained a letter to Sandra Bullock as well as notes about the security measures of her home. Last year, at a preliminary hearing, a police officer read passages from that notebook.
“There is two large impervious gates that no one can open but you,” an officer read. “I hope one day you open them to me… You are very special to me and without you in my life there is only misery.”
Sandra Bullock can be heard on the tape expressing concern that her security measures had been bypassed. She tried to open her front gates remotely using her phone so officers could get inside. But they would not open.
“Now my phone is not working so maybe they know how to override my system,” Sandra Bullock worried to the dispatcher.
An officer testified at the preliminary hearing that, when Corbett was arrested, he addressed Sandra Bullock.
“He said, ‘I’m sorry. I love you Sandy.'”
Corbett’s lawyer characterizes as “mentally disturbed,” but insists that he has “gotten help in jail.” He says that Corbett “really thought he was married” to the Sandra Bullock “but doesn’t think that anymore.”
