After a post-trial diagnosis that found he has a psychotic disorder, Uma Thurman’s convicted stalker has been sentenced to three years’ probation and to undergo psychiatric treatment.
Jack Jordan, 37, told a Manhattan State Supreme Court judge on Monday that he was “terrified of being incarcerated again,” reports The New York Times. Justice Gregory Carro, in turn, told Jordan that his going to jail for what he did to Thurman “would not protect society.”
Jordan was convicted on May 6 of fourth-degree stalking and second-degree aggravated harassment (and found not guilty of two charges of aggravated harassment).
The stalking charges could have carried up to 90 days in jail, while the aggravated harassment charges could have meant jail for up to a year. It took the jury seven hours to come to its conclusion.
