Audrina Patridge can now sleep at ease, for a couple months anyways. A man who at one point trespassed on the former Dancing With the Stars contestant’s property, carrying a knife in his backpack hoping to meet her, is now in prison.
Zachary Loring, the 25-year-old man who pleaded no contest to stalking the reality starlet last June, was sentenced Thursday in Los Angeles to two years in state prison.
L.A. Superior Court Judge William C. Ryanto also ordered a $250 fine, and for the obsessed fan to stay at least 500 yards away from Patridge and her home for the next 10 years.
However, 546 days for good behavior and time already served have already been credited to the prisoner [meaning two years could possibly turn into six months].
A diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, Loring also previously showed up at Patridge’s front door uninvited delivering a stack of creepy poems, pictures and cards he made for her, one of which included a drawing of a woman being strangled.
A rep for Patridge was unavailable for comment, but I have to ask Fanbolters: is a few months enough time in the slammer for this particular stalker? I’m thinking not.
