The teen reality TV star sentenced to serve jail time for her part in a heist at 's Hollywood Hills home agreed to plead guilty after learning the actor was keen to testify in court. "" star Alexis Neiers insists she's innocent even though she's officially a convicted felon.

As part of a plea bargain with prosecutors, the 18 year old accepted a charge of first-degree residential burglary, and learned she would be serving a six-month prison term. But now Neiers tells E! News, "I didn't do anything wrong. I thought we were going to trial and we had a great shot at this. I had been so confident because I had thought up until this point that I didn't do anything wrong."

But her attorney Jeffery Rubenstein reveals his client had a "limited role" in the burglary and admits the plea was due in large part to Bloom's willingness to testify against Neiers, who was seen on surveillance video entering Bloom's Hollywood Hills home last summer.

Neiers previously insisted she was drunk at the time and was unaware that she was involved in a break-in and burglary.
