Alex Trebek burglary suspect could face 30 years in jail
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The woman accused of burglarizing "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek's hotel room in San Francisco this summer won't face a "three strikes" charge that could have sent her to prison for 25 years to life.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday that District Attorney George Gascon doesn't think the nature of 56-year-old Lucinda Moyers' prior offenses calls for a three-strikes prosecution.
Records show Moyers has been convicted of four burglaries since 1990.
Authorities say she broke into Trebek's room at a downtown San Francisco hotel July 26 and stole a bracelet, purse and wallet with $661 in cash.
The Jeopardy host says he tore his Achilles tendon as he tried to chase Moyers.
Moyers will still be charged with first-degree burglary and could get 30 years if convicted.
