Uma Thurmans alleged stalker pleads not guiltyNovember 17th, 2007 - 2:50 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Nov 17 (ANI): Uma Thurmans stalker has pleaded not guilty to stalking the actress for close to two years.
A 35-year-old former psychiatric patient, Jack Jordan, has been held on 10,000 dollars bail since he was arrested outside the 37-year-old actress house in October this year.
Jordans request to reduce his bail has been denied by the judge, after Assistant District Attorney Christopher Hill pointed out that he had been “acting erratically for the past several years,” and therefore wasn’t a good bail risk.
According to the criminal complaint against Jordan, he first made unwanted contact with Thurman in November 2005, when he tried to enter her trailer on a Manhattan film set.
Following the incident, Jordan’s family had him involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital.
However, upon his release, he continued to reach out to Thurman, sending the Pulp Fiction star and her family numerous emails over August and September 2006.
Jordan’s attorney George Vomvolakis said that his client was getting a raw deal due to Thurman’s celebrity status.
“If the complainant weren’t Ms. Thurman, this would have been a misdemeanour stalking case,” E! Online quoted Vomvolakis, as saying. (ANI)
