Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin was convicted of stalking Alec Baldwin Thursday and sentenced to six months in jail, The Associated Press reports.
Sabourin was found guilty of charges including stalking and harassment. This six-month sentence is on top of the 30-day sentence Sabourin already received after she was found in contempt of court for yelling repeatedly and making other outburts during the trial. "I haven't done anything wrong. I'm innocent," Sabourin told Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Robert Mandelbaun, according to the AP. "You're doing a mistake right now."
Baldwin's wife, Hilaria, said in a statement after the sentencing that she and her husband "feel safe, relieved and happy to move forward." Both Hilaria and Alec testified during the trial, with the latter's testimony making news when he reportedly cried on the stand as he recounted how his life became a "horror movie" when Sabourin started contacting him and showing up at his home.
The 30 Rock star and Sabourin said they met on a film set in 2000 and shared a meal 10 years later, but only to discuss career opportunities, according to Baldwin. He also acknowledged sending her several friendly e-mails. However, Sabourin painted a very different picture and claimed they carried on a sexual relationship and that Alec gave her mixed messages. She later showed up at his homes in New York and the Hamptons, as well as his wife's yoga classes. In one of her many messages she left for Baldwin, she begged him to help her "conceive a mini-Baldwin." Another message pleaded that they get married.
Baldwin met his future wife, Hilaria, in 2011 and the two became engaged the following year. They recently welcomed their first child together.
