A jury has convicted a man of trying to rob Paris Hilton's Los Angeles home last year.

US district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison said jurors deliberated for less than an hour before convicting Nathan Parada of burglary for trying to break into the hotel heiress' home last August.

Paris gave evidence that she and her boyfriend were woken after Parada banged on one of the house's windows with the butt of a knife.

A defence lawyer told jurors that Parada had left a halfway house days earlier and had not taken his antidepressant medication for several days.

Parada faces up to three years in prison when sentenced.

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
