Los Angeles: The scissor-armed man, who tried to break into former Disney star Miley Cyrus`s home, has been ordered to stay away from her for the next three years.

The 19-year-old singer-actress initially sought a permanent restraining order to prevent the trespasser named Jason Luis Rivera from visiting her again, reported a website.

The man was actually sentenced to 18 months, but he is likely to be released in May 2013 due to jail overcrowding.

Jason climbed the fence of Cyrus`s house and hid in the bushes. He had a pair of scissors and claimed that he was married to Cyrus while being apprehended by the cops.

He was charged with two misdemeanour counts of trespassing and one misdemeanour count of resisting arrest.

"I am a friend of Miley Cyrus. I am. She`s my wife. Me and Miley have been friends for five years," he told to the cops.

The `Hannah Montana` star herself was not at home when the incident occurred.
