LOS ANGELES -- A man who pleaded no contest to being part of a ring that burglarized the homesof Lindsey Lohan and other celebrities has been charged with attempting to hire someone to rape a woman.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office says Nicholas Prugo, 24, was charged Tuesday with one count of solicitation to commit sexual assault and three counts of stalking. Also charged was 34-year-old Edward Feinstein, who prosecutors described as Prugo's "acquaintance."

Prosecutors say the pair's target was Dawn Daluise, a once-prominent Los Angeles skin-care specialist. A jury acquitted Daluise earlier this year of attempting to have a business rival killed.

He was jailed in lieu of $485,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
