Allen and his wife had been critical of the police department's decision not to arrest the alleged intruders, but their attorney Gregory Victor told CBS Miami that Allen is satisfied with the trespassing charges.

Police said Alana Elizabeth Garcia, 18, Jorge Jesus Guerrero, 18, Christian John Lobo, 18, Jonathan Louis Ramirez, 19, Kevin Ramos, 18, Ernesto Romero, 18, and Angel Alejandro, 18, reportedly went into Allen's Coral Gables home around 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 14, entering through an unlocked door.

The group thought no one was home and wanted to explore the basketball star's house, according to police.

The teens were not arrested, because police said there wasn't any intent to commit a crime.

They will receive summonses in the mail and will have to appear in court. If they are found guilty, the teens face a maximum of one year in prison, plus fines.
