A woman accused of stalking Alec Baldwin spent St. Valentine's Day
(14Feb13) in court as a New York judge renewed a communications ban preventing
her from contacting the actor and his family. Canadian actress Genevieve
Sabourin is alleged to have bombarded the 30 Rock star with emails, while making
unwelcome visits to his Manhattan home after they enjoyed a night out together
in 2010. She was arrested last April (12) on suspicion of harassment and
stalking charges, and was held again in November (12) when she was accused of
violating an order of protection by reaching out to the actor and his wife
Hilaria via Twitter.com. The case returned to court on Thursday, when Sabourin
and her attorney Rick Pasacreta had hoped to land a jail-free plea deal from
prosecutors to resolve the legal troubles, reports the New York Daily News.
Instead, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Ann Scherzer ordered the suspect to
continue keeping her distance from the Baldwins, telling her, "You cannot send
them a message on Facebook or any other form of social network. I'm talking any
kind of communication device that exists on this planet." Sabourin is due to
return to court on 8 April (13) - exactly one year after her initial arrest.
Baldwin now has extra reason to protect his family - his new wife Hilaria has
confirmed the couple is expecting its first child.
