Tyra Banks’ stalker sentenced to 1yr probation

New York, Jun 19 (ANI): A Georgia man, who had been stalking and harassing talk show host Tyra Banks, was on June 18 sentenced to one year of probation.

The stalker, Brady Green, 39, has also been barred from contacting the former supermodel for two years, and was also ordered to complete an anti-stalking course.

Green, who wore a shiny brown suit, declined to comment after the sentencing in Manhattan Criminal Court, and so did his lawyer.

Banks was not present during the hearing, and prosecutors described Green as having developed an “unhealthy obsession” while watching the actress’ show in his hometown of Dublin, Ga.

Banks had testified against him in April, saying that she was “terrified”, after she and her staffers had to barricade themselves in her dressing room when Green tried to slip past security on ‘The Tyra Banks Show’ in March 2008.

“I fear the safety of my staffers. I fear the safety of my family,” the New York Daily News quoted her as testifying.

Green had said during the trial that he only wanted to score tickets for the show. (ANI)
