Alec Baldwin stalking case: Woman convicted

November 14, 2013 12:00:00 AM PST
The Canadian woman accused of stalking Alec Baldwin was convicted Thursday morning in a New York courtroom.

Genevieve Sabourin has been sentenced to six months in jail for stalking the "30 Rock" actor. She had already been facing 30 days in jail for repeatedly disrupting court proceedings Wednesday.

The judge found Sabourin guilty of stalking, attempted aggravated harassment, harassment and attempted contempt of court, saying she had no right to pursue contact she knew to be unwanted. Sabourin was ordered to steer clear of the Baldwins when she is released from jail.

After the verdict, Sabourin was well-behaved but defiant, telling the judge, "I haven't done anything wrong. I'm innocent."

During the trial, Baldwin testified that the actress had turned his life into a horror film after they met once for dinner, which was at the request of "Scarface" producer Martin Bregman so that Baldwin could give her acting advice.

"It was nightmarish," he testified.
