Charge Won't Be Pursued Against Swift Trespasser

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Prosecutors declined to pursue a criminal trespassing charge against a Wisconsin man arrested after climbing a fence at a Nashville home linked to country star Taylor Swift.

Jacob Kulke, of Marshfield, Wis., will remain in jail in Nashville as he is fighting extradition to Colorado for probation violation.

Kulke was charged with criminal trespassing earlier this month after a security guard caught him climbing the fence at the 6,000 square foot home in Belle Meade that has been publicly linked to Swift and her family.

Sean McKinney, Kulke's attorney, said Thursday that prosecutors discussed the decision not to prosecute with representatives for Swift.

However, he said that the charge could be brought again within the statutes of limitations.

McKinney said Kulke had a reasonable belief that he had been invited to the home.

McKinney added Kulke believed they had arranged a private meeting at the Belle Meade home because of text messages and emails traded between him and someone he thought was the superstar.

Kulke told police he rode a bus to Nashville from Wisconsin, and then took a taxi to the home.

Kulke remains jailed on $350,000 bond. An extradition hearing is set for January 29.
