Thurman stalker found guilty

Obsessed Uma Thurman fan Jack Jordan has been found guilty of stalking and harassing the Hollywood star.

The jury at New York's Manhattan Supreme Court delivered its verdict shortly before midday (EST) yesterday.

Jordan, 37, was found guilty of fourth-degree stalking and one count of second degree aggravated harassment.

He was acquitted on two other aggravated harassment charges - but could still face jail time.

Stalking can carry a 90-day sentence, and aggravated harassment can lead to 12 months behind bars, reports TMZ.com.

Thurman, her mother and father testified at the week-long trial - during which it was revealed Jordan bombarded the trio with notes and letters, and threatened to kill himself if her parents refused to pass on messages.

He was arrested outside Thurman's New York home in 2005 after attempting to force his way into her movie trailer, while she was shooting 'My Super Ex-Girlfriend'.
