Alec Baldwin's Accused Stalker Gets 30 Days for Contempt

STAN HONDA/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Alec Baldwin's alleged stalker Genevieve Sabourin shouted out in court again Wednesday morning and the exasperated judge promptly held her in contempt of court and sentenced her to 30 days in jail.

Sabourin, 41, had been repeatedly warned on Tuesday to be quiet as she constantly interrupted testimony by Baldwin, 55, and Baldwin's wife Hilaria. She is charged with harassing and stalking the 30 Rock star.

After starting off her testimony Wednesday is the same loud manner, Judge Robert Mandelbaum said he'd had enough.

"Genevieve stop talking," her lawyer instructed her.

But she did not stop. "That's it. You are held in contempt," the judge told her.

After being held in contempt, Sabourin began crying.

"I am stressed," she told the judge. "I am shaking. They've vilified me in the press."

"I would never hurt anyone in my entire life. I've been abused," she told the judge.

Mendelbaum dismissed her comments saying, "You have been treated in this courtroom with respect."

"I'm afraid," Sabourin persisted.

The judge replied, "Like every other person in this courthouse you are not permitted to scream out loud."/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>

Sabourin was scheduled to take the stand Wednesday, but after being held in contempt, Baldwin's doorman, David Paduani, took the stand to support the actor's stalking claims. Paduani was on duty Easter Sunday 2012 when Sabourin showed up at his apartment building.

Paduani testified he eventually called police, which made Sabourin "real mad."

Baldwin, who met Sabourin in 2002 while playing a small role in the movie The Adventures of Pluto Nash, has accused her of following him to events in New York City and even to his home in East Hampton, New York. He also claimed Sabourin ruined the day he proposed to his wife by showing up at his Hamptons home after they became engaged.
