Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones Can Breathe Easy from Knight-mare
9-Jul-2005
Written by: Christopher J. Perez

Convicted Stalker of Zeta-Jones is Sentenced to Prison

Catherine Zeta-Jones finally has for the time being a slight reason to breathe easier now that her stalker, Dawnette Knight, has been officially sentenced to three years in prison. Knight, 35, who in February pleaded no contest to charges of stalking the actress, has also been ordered to pay a $200 redistribution fine, and is required to obey a restraining order to stay away from actress Zeta-Jones for a period of 10 years.

With the no contest plea, Knight has in effect admitted to the two incidents that she was charged which occurred on October 2, 2003 and May 21, 2004. The fanatic Knight claimed she was in love with Zeta-Jones’ husband, actor Michael Douglas, and even went so far as to send morbidly explicit letters in which she threatened to cut the Zeta-Jones’ throat, shoot her in the head, and “slice her up like meat on a bone and feed her to the dogs.”

Jane Robison from the District Attorney’s office of L.A. County has said that since Knight has been held without bail as of June 3, 2004, she will receive a credit of 600 days for time served. With good behavior, it is said by Robison that she will probably serve less than one year.

The news of the conviction and sentencing, however, appears to have done little to the emotional state of the victimized celebrity. In a statement given about the ordeal, Zeta-Jones said of Knight “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.”
