    Matthew David Hughes, 28, was sentenced to five years of probation after completing his 524 days jail sentence for breaking into Eminem's mansion in Clinton Township on April 5, 2020

    Matthew David Hughes, 28, was sentenced to five years of probation after completing his 524 days jail sentence for breaking into Eminem's mansion in Clinton Township on April 5, 2020 

    A man who broke into Eminem's suburban Detroit home last year with a brick paver and told the rapper 'he was there to kill him' has been sentenced to five years of probation and time served.  

    Matthew Hughes, 28, was sentenced last week by a Macomb County Circuit Court judge under a plea and sentencing deal with county prosecutors, the Macomb Daily reported. 

    He was released after serving 524 days in the county jail.

    Hughes said little at the hearing and made confusing statements in his presentencing report, said his attorney, Richard Glanda.

    Eminem, who reportedly agreed with the outcome, did not attend the hearing.

    Authorities have said that Hughes was homeless at the time he was jailed. Glanda has also said that Hughes suffers from 'some sort of mental health issue.' 

    Glanda hinted that his client might live with his mother in Massachusetts after his release from jail.  

    Although Hughes and his mother have not been in communication for 'a long time,' she recently wrote to him, Glanda said.  

    In August, Hughes pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of second-degree home invasion in exchange for dismissal of charges of first-degree home invasion. He is pictured in court in September 2020

    Hughes wasn't armed when he was discovered around 4am on April 5, 2020, in Eminem's home in Clinton Township. 

    The rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, was sleeping when he was awakened by the noise of Hughes breaking a kitchen door window with a brick paver.

    The rapper initially thought the intruder was his nephew.  

    He shouted for his security who detained Hughes until officers arrived. Hughes was taken into custody that same day.   

    The officer who responded to the scene that night, Adam Hackstock testified that Eminem told him he had woken up and found Hughes standing in his home.  

    In June 2019,  Hughes was arrested for trespassing on two Michigan properties. Doorbell camera footage from that incident - taken outside a mansion in nearby Rochester Hills - showed Hughes trying to enter the home in search of the rapper

    'When Mr Mathers asked him why he was there, he was told by Mr Hughes that he was there to kill him,' Hackstock said on the stand

    Hackstock said that Eminem told him he escorted Hughes out of the home through a TV area, game room, and basketball court. 

    In August, Hughes pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of second-degree home invasion in exchange for dismissal of charges of first-degree home invasion, malicious destruction of property between $1,000 and $20,000 and assault of a jail employee.
