The woman charged with burglarizing "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek's San Francisco hotel room is a prostitute, not a thief, according to her attorney, Mark Jacobs.

Jacobs claimed his client, 56-year-old Lucinda Moyers, was in the downtown San Francisco area to meet a patron on the night she allegedly robbed Trebek, reports the San Francisco Examiner.

Prosecutors claim Moyers stole a $650 bracelet and other items from the hotel room where the game show host was staying with his wife. The stolen items have not yet been recovered.
