Alec Baldwin's Stalker Is Convicted -- But That Doesn't Mean the Drama Is Over

The actor can breathe a sigh of relief now because the chaos in his life is over -- at least for now

Well, it looks like the circus that was Alec Baldwin's stalker case has finally come to an end!

After one of the most bizarre celebrity court cases we've heard of in quite some time, Judge Robert Mandelbaum found Genevieve Sabourin guilty on five counts of stalking and harassment in a Manhattan court earlier today.

After taking only a few minutes to reach his verdict, the judge sentenced Sabourin to 210 days in jail and also ordered her to stay away from Baldwin after she served her time.

Sabourin -- who is a Canadian actress -- was crying in the courtroom as Assistant District Attorney Zach Stendig told the court that her incontrollable, impulsive behavior during the case "proves that she is delusional, proves that she is a stalker."

Stendig continued that Sabourin understood "the nightmare she was causing" in the life of the Hollywood actor and his wife Hilaria, and her "delusions, her obsessions, her manifest inability to control her actions" found her guilty.

The prosecutor added that whether Baldwin and Sabourin were intimate was irrelevant and that she was "obsessed with Alec Baldwin. She's delusional about her relationship with Alec Baldwin."

The 30 Rock star had accused the actress of harassing him with constant crazy emails, phone calls, violent threats and even showing up on different occasions -- unannounced!

And during the trial yesterday, it's been reported that as Baldwin was crying as he took the stand -- stating that he feared for himself as well as his wife -- Sabourin was heckling him saying things like, "You're lying! Why are you lying?" and "You delete women after sex!" She even yelled, "You have a scar right here!" and pointed to her hip.

Not only that, but she also told Baldwin's wife, "You're going to hell!" as she went to take the stand, too.


Despite all of that, Sabourin's lawyer Todd Spodek disagreed with the verdict, saying that his client was lied to and sold a "fairy tale" dream from Baldwin.

"Was she wrong to think this was more than a one-night stand?" Spodek asked the court. "Her sole purpose was closure."

It's pretty hard to believe that Sabourin is a pretty put-together and rational person, who deserves some sympathy right now, with of all of these things that have come out from yesterday's courtroom chaos alone.

And while it would appear that Baldwin should have spent the rest of the day celebrating his win, that was not the case. When a photographer got too close to Baldwin and his family as they arrived back home, he erupted in a profanity-laced outburst.

Oh boy, can Baldwin ever stay away from the drama?
