On March 24, Simon Cowell was watching TV in his London mansion's bedroom when he heard a loud bang in his bathroom. Leanne Zaloumis, 30, had smashed his window with a brick.

At a court hearing today, Zaloumis admitted possessing a brick with intent to damage or destroy property, but denied burglary. Prosecutors accepted her plea, meaning she will not face trial, reports AP.

Judge John Denniss said the 102 days Zaloumis has spent in jail were sufficient punishment, but warned she would go to prison if she breached her bail conditions, which forbid her from contacting Cowell or going within 300 yards of his home.

She also has to wear an electronic tag and observe an overnight curfew.

Cowell's spokesman, Max Clifford, said the the mogul was "glad that the judge was understanding and sympathetic, and hopes that she (Zaloumis) gets some help and support."
