A Canadian actress has been convicted of stalking Hollywood star Alec Baldwin in New York City.

A Manhattan judge issued the verdict on Thursday, finding Genevieve Sabourin guilty of stalking, attempted aggravated harassment, harassment and attempted contempt of court.

At the trial, Baldwin had testified that the actress had turned his life into a nightmare after they met once for dinner.

The actor says she besieged him with unwanted phone calls and emails and started showing up at his homes and at public events.

In his summing up to the judge, defence lawyer Todd Spodek said Sabourin had a legitimate, brief romance with Baldwin. He complained that Baldwin was using the court system to “sort out his relationships”.

The judge sentenced Sabourin to six months in jail. That is on top of 30 days she already received for disrupting court proceedings.
