Alec Baldwin can now breathe easy for his stalker, a Canadian actress who pined for him, sent him yearning emails, called him on the phone repeatedly and even made unbidden, sudden appearances at his home, was convicted on Thursday.
The accused, Genevieve Sabourin, although pretty voluble about the fact that she was held in contempt of the court during the trial, was quiet but teary eyed when the judge pronounced her guilty of stalking and harassing Baldwin. Sabourin has now been sentenced for six months behind bars.

Even after the verdict was announced, when invited by Robert Mandelbaum, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge to speak, the actress repeated that she had not done anything wrong and that she was innocent before adding ‘you’re doing a mistake right now’.
