NEW YORK, June 2 (UPI) -- Jack Jordan, convicted of stalking film star Uma Thurman in New York, has been sentenced to three years probation.
The New York Times reported Justice Gregory Carro of State Supreme Court in New York also ordered Jordan to undergo psychiatric treatment. In addition, Carro issued a five-year protection order to prevent Jordan from having any contact with Thurman.
However, Carro declined a request from the prosecution that would have put Jordan behind bars for up to a year, the maximum penalty, the Times said.
Jordan, a 37-year-old Maryland native and graduate of the University of Chicago, was convicted last month of harassing Thurman from 2005 to 2007 by sending her threatening and disturbing cards and e-mail messages.
The man, who reportedly worked only menial jobs in recent years, was sentenced Monday for aggravated harassment and to time served for stalking.
"I'm terrified of being incarcerated again," the Times quoted Jordan as saying before he was sentenced. "My greatest wish is that I had known sooner that I was putting fear into the heart" of Thurman.
