Sentencing has been continued for a man who pleaded no contest to stalking "The Hills" actress Audrina Patridge.Zachary James Loring was scheduled to be sentenced on Monday but it was postponed to Oct. 28.

Loring was ordered on June 21 to undergo a 90-day psychiatric evaluation by state prison officials after his no contest plea to one count of stalking in violation of a restraining order.

The 25-year-old was arrested Feb. 19 after knocking on the door of Patridge's Hollywood Hills home.

In September 2009, a judge extended a temporary restraining order that the reality TV star obtained against Loring to three years. This was after Loring allegedly handed Patridge a packet of letters that included a drawing of a woman being strangled.

Loring was evaluated by doctors earlier this year and was found mentally competent to stand trial. He was originally charged with one felony count of stalking and two misdemeanor counts of disobeying a court order.
