Uma Thurman stalker just "creepy"

Court told accused Uma Thurman stalker just "creepy"

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A man accused of stalking actress Uma Thurman for two years may have been creepy and obsessive but he did not break the law, his lawyer told a New York jury on Monday.
Jack Jordan, 37, is accused of sending harassing e-mails to Thurman's father and brother, loitering for hours on the steps of Thurman's Manhattan apartment and visiting her trailer on a movie set.

He faces misdemeanor counts of stalking and harassment.

Thurman was expected to testify in Manhattan criminal court later on Monday or early on Tuesday, court officials said.

"He loved her and possibly still does. He never wanted to annoy her, threaten her or alarm her," said Jordan's lawyer, George Vomvolakis. "Creepy? Yes. Obsessed? Yes. Criminal? No."

But assistant district attorney Colleen Walsh said Jordan engaged in "emotional blackmail" of Thurman and her family, telling her brother he would kill himself if he did not hear from the actress within 24 to 48 hours.

"Enough is enough," Walsh said. "The price of fame is not this high."

Jordan once gave the 37-year-old actress' personal assistant a package containing a letter, his driver's license, a postcard of the Statute of Liberty and other objects.

"I feel in love with you," the letter said. "I think you should call me up, let me watch you act on the set some more, we should date or move in together, and then get married."

"I gave up describing the contents of my heart to famous women I don't know after Carol Channing broke my heart in the early nineties," he wrote.

Jordan is a 1994 graduate of the University of Chicago and, until his arrest, was pursuing a master's degree at Mills College in Oakland, California, Vomvolakis said.

If convicted, he faces up to one year in jail.

Thurman's stalker 'strikes again'

A man who was convicted of stalking Uma Thurman two years ago has allegedly violated a restraining order by attempting to contact the actress.

Jack Jordan was found guilty of fourth-degree stalking and one count of second-degree aggravated harassment by a jury in 2008 after he bombarded Thurman with notes and letters, and threatened to kill himself outside her New York home in 2005.

He was ordered to seek psychiatric counselling and stay away from the Kill Bill star for five years.

But the 39 year old allegedly violated the order of protection by making a series of phone calls to the actress last week, reportedly calling her home and cell phone and speaking to her assistant.

Thurman lodged an official complaint with police on Sunday, according to E! Online.

A police source tells the website, "Uma had a criminal complaint prepared against this guy and filed on Oct. 31. No arrests have been made, but he is wanted here. If he shows, he's getting locked up."

Department of Probation spokesman Ryan Dodge tells the New York Post that officials are "investigating and will take appropriate action".

His next phone call will be from jail.

Uma Thurman stalker Jack Jordan was busted in Maryland just before Thanksgiving for violating an order of protection the “Kill Bill” star has against him, law enforcement sources said.

Sources said Jordan went “berserk” during an extradition hearing in Maryland and is now being held for observation for 30 days.

Jordan, convicted of stalking and harassing Thurman in 2008, allegedly made phone calls to her Manhattan office and cell phone in late October, sources said.

On Oct. 29, Jordan allegedly called Thurman’s office, spoke to her assistant and demanded to know her whereabouts.

The next day, he allegedly called Thurman's personal mobile phone, which her assistant also answered.

Jordan allegedly said her Swiss businessman boyfriend, Arpad Busson, was "not good enough" and "she should marry me."

Ex-psychiatric patient convicted of stalking actress Uma Thurman charged again, jailed in NYC

By COLLEEN LONG , Associated Press

Last update: December 17, 2010 - 2:42 PM

NEW YORK - A former psychiatric patient convicted of stalking Uma Thurman was jailed Friday after he was charged with again trying to contact the Oscar-nominated actress.

Jack Jordan was arraigned on charges of stalking and criminal contempt for violating a restraining order. Jordan pleaded not guilty in front of the same judge who warned the 39-year-old he would go to jail if he tried to contact Thurman after his 2008 conviction for stalking the "Kill Bill" actress.

Prosecutors said he made several calls to Thurman on Oct. 29 and Oct. 30. He was arrested shortly before Thanksgiving at his family's home in North Potomac, Md. A police spokeswoman with the suburban Washington, D.C., department said officers sent to arrest Jordan found him sitting in front of a computer with Thurman's name in a Google search box.

Jordan was extradited to New York on Thursday. He told police, according to prosecutors, that the calls were a drunken mistake.

Michelle Kaminsky, Brooklyn assistant district attorney, did not say how Jordan got Thurman's number but said he may have been in Manhattan when one of the calls was placed.

"During one of the phone calls to a house guest, the defendant got very agitated and asked the house guest to step outside," Kaminsky said.

Jordan was being held without bail until his next court date, scheduled for Wednesday. His attorney had argued for protective custody because he said he could be attacked at Rikers Island, but Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gregory Carro denied the request. A call to Jordan's parents was not returned Friday.

The former psychiatric patient was convicted of stalking and harassing the actress from 2005 to 2007. He was sentenced in 2008 to three years' probation and told not to try to contact Thurman for five years.

Thurman told jurors at his trial that she was "completely freaked out" by his behavior. He sent bizarre letter and cards — featuring such ominous images as a picture of a bride with her head torn off and such unsettling messages as "my hands should be on your body at all times" — called her family and employees, tried to get into her trailer on a movie set and showed up at her Manhattan home late at night, according to testimony.

Jordan testified that he'd developed a crush on Thurman in high school after seeing her in the 1988 movie "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen."

He was involuntarily committed to a mental hospital in late 2005 after being questioned about his obsession with Thurman, he said.

After Jordan's most recent arrest, Thurman said she would not comment on the case.

The case is being prosecuted in Manhattan by a Brooklyn attorney because Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance's former law firm represented Thurman.

Bail set for Uma Thurman stalker after rearrest
Associated Press

Updated: 12/23/2010 09:10:22 AM CST

NEW YORK — Uma Thurman's stalker has a chance at getting out of jail while he awaits trial on charges of trying to contact her again.

Jack Jordan's lawyers said it's unclear whether he can post the $250,000 cash bail or $500,000 bond a Manhattan judge set Wednesday. Jordan had been held without bail since his latest arrest last month at his family's home in North Potomac, Md.

The former psychiatric patient was told not to try to contact the Academy Award-winning actress for five years after his 2008 stalking and harassment conviction. But prosecutors say he called her again on Oct. 29 and Oct. 30.

He has pleaded not guilty to charges including stalking and criminal contempt of court. Prosecutors say the 39-year-old told police the calls were drunken mistakes.

Unbelievable all the time & effort stalkers & their defense spend in trying to get out of the charges, when the solution is very simple: just leave her alone :evil:

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/vuln ... &FEEDNAME=

Uma-crazed fan Jack Jordan lost his second try at getting out of jail today, after failing to convince a judge that the "Kill Bill" actress "is not a vulnerable victim."

A judge ordered that Jordan's bail remain set at a sky-high $500,000 -- which the drifter has been unable to post -- after prosecutors argued that he's both unstable and obsessive, having a history of stalking actress Uma Thurman for a half-dozen years now.

"Ms. Thurman is not a vulnerable victim," defense lawyer Sam Roberts of the Legal Aid Society had argued, in hopes of slashing the bail amount. "Especially in the light that there have been no threats made in this case."

Thurman spends her time surrounded by security, production company staff and other employees, the lawyer noted.

But prosecutors from Brooklyn -- who are handling the case because Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance's former law office had once repped the actress, leading Vance to recuse himself -- countered that Thurman is just another Manhattan gal.

"She's a citizen of New York County, and she's entitled to the all the protection of the law," just like any other citizen, prosecutor Michelle Kaminsky told Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gregory Carro.

"She has been stalked by this defendant, who is seriously mentally ill, for six years."

Jordan's lawyers are continuing to argue, now in legal papers, that Jordan committed a mere misdemeanor when he twice called Thurman's phones in October, asking to speak to the actress.

Prosecutors have alleged that Jordan told Thurman's assistant, who answered both calls, that the leggy blonde's Swiss businessman boyfriend, Arpad Busson, was "not good enough" and that "she should marry me."

The phone calls violated court orders from Jordan's 2008 stalking conviction, prosecutors say. But they didn't amount to threats, and so shouldn't be charged as felony criminal contempt, his lawyers argue.

In keeping bail the same, the judge noted, "I see no change in circumstances" from when he set bail the first time, just before Christmas.

As for the bail amount, Roberts chalked it up to Thurman's celebrity.

"Pulp Fiction. Kill Bill. That's why it's so high," Roberts told reporters, with a smile, after court.

Prosecutors have until Feb. 2 to file a response to defense motions; Jordan is back Feb. 23 to hear the judge's decision on whether his charges will be reduced.

Uma Thurman Stalker Seeks Plea Deal

UMA THURMAN's stalker JACK JORDAN is seeking a plea deal after being accused of trying to contact the actress again.

UMA THURMAN's stalker is attempting to negotiate a plea deal after it was discovered that he attempted to contact the Hollywood actress again, despite being on probation, reports the Associated Press.

Jordan was convicted of stalking and harassing UMA THURMAN in 2008 and has told by a judge he was forbidden to contact the star. However, he was arrested at his parent's home in November 2010 after phoning Thurman's phone lines and demanding to speak with the actress.

When police raided his home, they found the words 'Uma Thurman J'adore' or 'I love Uma Thurman' typed into a Google search bar on his computer. Jordan has been behind bars since December 2010 and is due back in court on March 30th 2011.

If the new case goes to trial Jordan could face up to four years in prison for breaking the terms of his probation. It is understood that defence lawyers may attempt to seek a psychiatric treatment program as part of a possible plea deal. Lawyer SAM ROBERTS said, "Any disposition ... would not include felony charges, certainly he didn't commit a felony".

Psych test for Uma stalker

By WENN.COM

A judge in New York has ordered a man convicted of stalking Uma Thurman to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after concluding he is unfit to sign a plea deal.

Jack Jordan, 40, was convicted of stalking the Kill Bill actress in 2008 and was arrested again last year over allegations he breached a restraining order by calling Thurman's cell phone and her Manhattan office in October.

He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of criminal contempt and was back in court on Thursday as part of a proposed deal with prosecutors which will see him sentenced to two years of treatment at an outpatient facility followed by a year of probation.

Jordan has allegedly refused to take anti-psychotic medication or sign paperwork, and Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Matthew D'Emic concluded the accused "cannot assist in his own defence," according to the New York Post.

The judge ordered Jordan to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, but insisted the move will not invalidate his right to take the deal, telling the court, "This doesn't mean we're going to stop the process of his release."
