Uma Thurman’s stalker held guiltyMay 7th, 2008 - 10:41 pm ICT by admin
New York, May 7 (IANS) A court here has found a 37-year-old man guilty of stalking Hollywood star Uma Thurman for a period of two years. Jack Jordan, a University of Chicago graduate turned drifter, was Tuesday convicted of stalking Thurman, known for films like “Kill Bill” and “Pulp Fiction”, between 2005 and 2007. He was also found guilty of aggravated harassment for stuffing a love letter into the mailbox of the actress’s New York townhouse in 2007.
The trial attracted widespread attention because Thurman testified along with her mother Birgitte, a former model, and her father Robert Thurman, a professor of Indo-Tibetan studies at Columbia University.
During the trial at the State Supreme Court in Manhattan, Jordan described his elaborate visions that he was predestined to meet Thurman and live a happy life with her.
He testified that he never thought of himself as a stalker, only engaged “in a game of cat and mouse”.
He developed a crush on Thurman, 38, after seeing her in a movie while he was in high school.
