Alec Baldwin’s stalker trial is proving to be more dramatic than any movie or play he’s ever done. Her fate hasn’t even been decided yet but alleged stalker Genevieve Sabourin will already be serving jail time.
According to the Daily Mail, after arriving to court on the second day of testimony, Genevieve got into a scuffle with several court officials as she entered the building. As proceedings began, she continually interrupted her lawyer and Judge Robert Mandelbaum to claim that the officials had molested her and that she has been unfairly portrayed in the press.
“This is an injustice,” Genevieve said in court. “Everybody has used their force on me.” After warning the Canadian actress to stop interrupting, a request she ignored, the judge sentenced her to 30 days in jail for contempt in court.
"Like every other person in this courthouse you are not permitted to scream out loud,” said Judge Mandelbaum to which Genevieve retorted, “It's very difficult when people lie in front of your face.”
The drama comes a day after tearful testimonies from both Alec and wife Hilaria at the terror they felt over Genevieve’s actions. The abuse reportedly began 18 months before her arrest in April of 2012 and included threatening emails, voicemails, and visits from the struggling actress.
Alec claims that the two initially met for lunch as a favor for film producer Martin Bregman who was trying to make connections for Genevieve in the industry. After harassing him and claiming that the two had a physical relationship, the last straw came for Alec after Genevieve showed up at his Hamptons home the day he proposed to Hilaria.
Throughout Alec’s testimony, Genevieve shouted, “You’re lying!” and became visibly distraught. It’s unclear how many more days of testimony are expected in the case.
