What’s more, Karen Grace Sjoden was allegedly found with names and addresses of other Hollywood celebrities and had a “rambling letter” that referenced Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, prosecutors have told the court.
Sjoden, who was charged with misdemeanor trespassing on February 14, is being arraigned in a Beverly Hills courtroom before Judge Marsha Revel, where stunning new details are emerging about the incident.
The 49-year-old woman, who pled not guilty, was first found at the 53-year-old talk show host and comediane’s house around 3am, but left on her own accord, when security was called.
She later returned, around 5am.
“This is a set up,” Sjoden said in court, before ranting that she was working on some form a private investigator job.
UPDATE 3.35pm PT: Judge Revel set bail at $200,000 and ordered Sjoden not to go within 100 yards of DeGeneres.
