Actress jailed for stalking film star Baldwin
A Canadian actress has been sentenced to six months in jail for stalking film star Alec Baldwin in New York.
Genevieve Sabourin (41), who had already been facing 30 days in jail for repeatedly disrupting court proceedings, told Judge Robert Mandelbaum after the verdict: "I haven't done anything wrong. I'm innocent."
The judge found Sabourin guilty of stalking, attempted aggravated harassment, harassment and attempted contempt of court.
Baldwin testified that the actress had turned his life into a horror film after they met once for dinner.
He said she besieged him with phone calls and emails and started showing up at his homes and at public events. Sabourin testified that she had a brief romance with Baldwin, and just wanted him to explain why he didn't want to see her anymore.
Baldwin denied having a sexual encounter with Sabourin.
