The woman who is accused of burglarizing Alex Trebek’s hotel room faces a possible life sentence because of California’s “three strikes” law concerning repeat offenders, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Lucinda Moyers, 56, was arrested last week after "Jeopardy!" host Trebek chased her from his room. The Chronicle reported that she has two previous burglary convictions on her record, stemming from the early 1990s.

Under California law, a third felony conviction can result in a sentence of 25 years to life.

Moyers said she is innocent of burglarizing Trebek’s room at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco. She said she was at the hotel at 3 a.m. for a date with a man, who didn’t come to his door, and was waiting by the elevator when Trebek approached her and asked if she had been in his room. She said she told him she wasn’t, and then started running.

Moyers said she "didn’t even know who he was," the story says.
