Order extended against Bullock stalker

LOS ANGELES, June 1 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ordered a man accused of stalking actress Sandra Bullock to stay at least 200 feet away from her through June 2009.

The original 2003 order issued against Thomas James Weldon, 37, was due to expire Monday. Judge Marion Johnson Wednesday granted Bullock's request to extend it three more years, Zap2it.com reported.

Weldon voluntarily entered the Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute in Nashville in 2003 and is being considered for a furlough.

Before Weldon entered the facility, Bullock reported he followed her from Michigan to Texas to California and bombarded her with phone calls, faxes and e-mails.

"I have not been informed nor received any indication that the defendant recognizes that his fixation on me is delusional and that he will not resume stalking and harassing me, members of my family and employees of Fortis Films Inc. when and if he is released," Bullock said in her extension request.

Fortis Films Inc. is Bullock's production company.
