3 Years For Catherine Zeta Jones's Stalker
Category: SOFTPEDIA NEWS :: Entertainment :: Video

Catherine Zeta Jones's stalker was sentenced yesterday to 3 years in state prison

Catherine Zeta Jones's stalker was sentenced yesterday to 3 years in state prison, but, due to the time she already spent there, she could be imprisoned for as little as seven months.

Dawnette Knight, 35, cried as the Superior
Court Judge David Mintz sentenced her for 3 years behind bars, approved a 10-year restraining order barring Knight from contact with Zeta-Jones and her family and ordered her to pay $200 US in restitution.

In a letter read out to the Los Angeles court, the actress said: "You have profoundly affected me in how I conduct my life".

"Your actions will be with me the rest of my life - how I will be constantly observing, looking over my shoulder. You will never be famous, you will never be infamous, you are just a criminal."

Knight apologized to Zeta Jones and begged for forgiveness. "I am sorry. I think about it all the time," she said.

Charged with one felony count of stalking and three felony counts of making criminal threats, she could have been sentenced to five years in prison.

Knight wrote Catherine Zeta Jones threatening and violent letters, one letter saying: "We are going to slice her up like meat on a bone and feed her to the dogs".
