Zeta-Jones Stalker Given Sentence Date


A woman who stalked and threatened actress Catherine Zeta-Jones will be sentenced next month.

A Los Angeles judge ordered Dawnette Knight, 33, to appear for sentencing on July 8. She faces up to five years in prison.

Knight pleaded no contest in February to one count of stalking and three counts of making criminal threats.

She was accused of sending threatening and violent letters to acquaintances of the Welsh actress, including Zeta-Jones’ agent and her husband, actor Michael Douglas.

Knight, who was arrested on June 3 last year at her Beverly Hills home, allegedly apologised in another letter, claiming she had been in love with Douglas.
