A Los Angeles jury has convicted a man of misdemeanor trespassing at the home of Miley Cyrus.

The panel on Thursday also found Jason Luis Rivera guilty of resisting arrest after he was caught at the actress and singer's home. The 40-year-old's sentencing is scheduled for Friday.

Rivera has been jailed since his arrest Sept. 8, when authorities say he was caught at Cyrus' home carrying a pair of scissors.

Police say Rivera told them he was a friend of the singer-actress and repeatedly threw himself against an outside wall as if trying to break in.

Cyrus wasn't home during the incident.

A phone message left for Rivera's court-appointed attorney was not immediately returned.

As for Lohan, she made headlines earlier this week after getting in a verbal altercation with her mother outside the actress' childhood home on Long Island.

On Thursday night, Lohan appeared at Mr. Pink's Ginseng Drink event in Los Angeles where she told reporters she's behind Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.

"I just think employment is really important right now," Lohan said, reports E! News. "So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now."

The 26-year-old Lohan stars in the upcoming Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, set to premiere on Nov. 25.
