Calling the evidence against her alleged stalker “sufficient, clear and convincing,” a Los Angeles judge on Monday granted Pamela Anderson a restraining order against a British man whom the former Baywatch star has accused of “harassing” her and family members.

William Peter Stansfield, 29, has been ordered by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Linda Lefkowitz to stay away from Anderson for three years, say wire reports.

Anderson, 38, who currently stars on the FOX sitcom Stacked, did not appear in court Monday, nor did Stansfield. But in court papers filed last week, she said that Stansfield has come to her home in a gated Malibu community on several occasions and that once she found him talking to one of her sons at his school.

“Ms. Anderson is rightfully a concerned parent,” Anderson’s lawyer, John Gatti, told reporters outside the courtroom. “She’s concerned for the safety of her children and other children at the school. This was improper conduct at the school, and it’s the kind of conduct that goes way beyond the bounds of decency.”

Last week, Stansfield told TV’s Inside Edition that Anderson’s allegations were “outrageous.”
