Taylor Swift & # 39; s serial stalker, who broke into the singer's apartment in New York City and emptied it last month, was imprisoned for two to four years after accepting a plea deal with prosecutors.
Roger Alvarado, 23, pleaded guilty of violating his probationary period – which resulted from a previous burglary at Swift's home – and has now been sentenced to the Supreme Court of Manhattan.
The Ward of the Manhattan Supreme Court, Laura Ward, warned Alvarado that he would have absolutely, absolutely no contact with Taylor Swift. No phone calls, no letters, no video contact. & # 39;
She added: & # 39; Hopefully. no judge will ever see you again. & # 39;
Alvarado was arrested on March 7 after using a ladder to climb onto the terrace of Swift & # 39; s Tribeca mansion and smash through a glass door with a concrete block.
Taylor Swift & # 39; s serial stalker was sentenced Monday to a maximum of four years in prison for breaking into the singer's Tribeca mansion
The March 7 incident marked the third time that 22-year-old Alvarado had invaded Swift's home
Alvarado accepted a plea agreement in which he would serve in prison for between two and four years
Alvarado was imprisoned for the same crime one month after he was released from prison
He was accused of disregard for stalking, burglary and criminal crime for breaking a protection order.
Last month's burglary marked the third time Alvarado had forced entry into Swift & # 39; s house after being released from prison 30 days earlier for an earlier invasion.
The creepy fan had to be on a trial in Florida, but instead flew to New York on March 7 and then took a taxi directly to Swift & # 39; s mansion in violation of a security order.
Alvarado was caught watching surveillance images that lifted a ladder that he had stolen from a construction site against the side of the star's building and managed to climb onto her terrace.
He then slammed a glass door with a pavement finishing machine that caused more than $ 4,000 in damage, according to court rulings.
Swift was not at home, but her security team saw the burglary on her cameras and called 911. A few minutes later the police arrived and took Alvarado away with handcuffs.

Alvarado was arrested in April 2018 for breaking into the 29-year-old apartment, using her shower and napping on her bed.
In that case, he pleaded contempt and burglary and was sentenced to six months in jail and five-year probation in Florida and ordered to complete mental health treatment.
In a prison interview after his last arrest, Alvarado told Page Page through & # 39; silly eyes & # 39; that it probably wouldn't be the last.
When asked if he would do it again, he said: "Probably with more violence, but not to her."
& # 39; I don't want to hurt her. I just wanted to talk to her, talk to her. She seems nice [and] tough. & # 39;
During Monday's hearing, Judge Laura Ward warned Alvarado that his restraining order in favor of Swift still applies during his detention.
Alvarado entered his guilty plea in the Supreme Court of Manhattan on Monday, April 1. The suspect was escorted to the courtroom with handcuffs
Justice Laura Ward warned Alvarado not to try to contact Swift from prison, because her restraining order against him still applies while he is in prison
Alvarado claims he is not a Swift super fan and adds: & # 39; I listen to a lot of hip hop & # 39;
& # 39; Do not think that, because you are in prison, you can contact (quickly) & # 39 ;, Ward said.
Alvarado, from Homestead, Florida, has yet to reveal the motive behind his alleged obsession with Swift.
& # 39; I am not a super fan. I listen to a lot of hip hop, & # 39; the 22-year-old told Page Six last month, adding that his favorite albums are from her 1989 and Reputation.
When asked why he didn't try to meet Swift at a concert or break into her house, he said, "Oh, I didn't think about that. I think I should have done that first. & # 39;
Alvarado reportedly beamed to the mention of an interview in which the singer spoke out about having a stalker.
& # 39; Did she say my name? & # 39; he asked when he told about the recognition of the star.
The most recent home invasion came just after she revealed that she was so shocked by the deadly suicide bombing at the Manchester concert in Ariana Grande that she increased her safety at shows and took her everywhere with a gun.
Swift representatives (above at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 14) did not return requests for comments from DailyMail.com
Swift is also no stranger to stalkers, which has prompted her to take her security measures.
In September 2018, she was banned from a stalker, 26-year-old Eric Swarbrick, who had been capitalizing since 2016.
In one he stated: & # 39; I want to rap Taylor Swift. That's why I hate Taylor myself … This is how I know I am Taylor & # 39; s soulmate. & # 39;
He said: & # 39; I will not hesitate to kill her … and there is nothing that you, your lawyers or the law will do about it. Remember who I am. & # 39;
In April 2018, Julius Alexander Sandrock was arrested for stealing a crime for trying to break into her house, with a mask and rubber gloves and with a knife, sharp ammunition and black rope.
The 38-year-old told the police that he had visited several states to meet the star, who was not at home at the time of the incident.
