From Digital Spy:
Britney Spears has been given protection against a former American Idol contestant who was caught peering through the windows of her home.
The 'Womanizer' star was granted a temporary restraining order yesterday, after Miranda Tozier Robbins was found sneaking around her California mansion in April.
Robbins, who appeared on the fifth season of Idol, has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Spears and her home. She faces an arraignment next week on misdemeanour charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct.
The 26-year-old told the court that she would be representing herself in proceedings but the judge advised her to wait until her next hearing before making a plea.
He added that she would have to wait a week to learn whether the footage that she had shot at Spears's Casablancas estate would be returned to her. Spears, who is currently in London, will not be appearing in court at any stage.
Robbins previously suggested that her actions had been a "joke" and inspired by a "docummentary-type" film that she was making about the singer.
