Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin has been convicted of stalking Alec Baldwin and sentenced to six months in jail.

Genevieve Sabourin, 41, was found guilty of stalking, attempted aggravated harassment, harassment and attempted contempt of court.

The judgement in New York came a day after Genevieve Sabourin was sentenced to 30 days in prison for contempt of court.

Alec Baldwin, 55, testified during the trial that Genevieve Sabourin had besieged him with unwanted phone calls and emails.

The actor denied having a relationship with Genevieve Sabourin and accused her of subjecting him and his wife Hilaria Baldwin to “dangerous” harassment.

Alec Baldwin testified that he had met Genevieve Sabourin over lunch with a mutual friend in 2000 when he was filming in Montreal.

He said he had met her again in 2010 to offer her career advice – a meeting Genevieve Sabourin claimed had ended as a romantic relationship.

Genevieve Sabourin said she had merely wanted him to explain why he did not want to see her anymore following their alleged brief romance.


Judge Thomas Mandelbaum said on Thursday that Genevieve Sabourin had no right to pursue contact with Alec Baldwin that she knew would be unwelcome.

He said she had waged a “relentless and escalating campaign of threats” against Alec and Hilaria Baldwin and had shown an “utter lack of respect” for the law.

Genevieve Sabourin was composed but defiant after the verdict was announced, telling the judge she was “innocent” and had not done anything wrong.
