The second man accused of stealing from Kirsten Dunst
's hotel room insists he thought he was running an errand when his pal stole the actress' bag.
James Jimenez is facing 15 years behind bars for his alleged part in the burglary of Dunst's hotel room in 2007.
He is accused of joining Jarrod Beinerman in a raid on the star's suite at New York's SoHo Grand, stealing a number of items belonging to the actress and her then co-star Simon Pegg
Beinerman, 34, was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in jail last September after confessing to illegally entering the suite and taking the How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
star's designer bag.
But Jimenez insists he believed Beinerman was collecting the bag for a pal's sick mother, and he merely tagged along on the errand.
He took to the stand at the State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Friday, telling Assistant District Attorney Tricia Stolfi, "I was just following him."
Items stolen in the raid include a $13,000 Marc Jacobs purse, $2,500 in cash, a cell phone, and a Balenciaga bag.
