Baldwin stalker found in contempt

A Canadian woman on trial for allegedly stalking Alec Baldwin has been jailed for 30 days for contempt of court.

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Robert Mandelbaum issued the punishment to Genevieve Sabourin after finding her in contempt of court following a series of courtroom outbursts. She replied, "I didn't do anything!"

The judge had warned Sabourin repeatedly about speaking out during her trial. She continued to interrupt afterward, saying she did so because she didn't trust her lawyer.

Sabourin is about to testify in the case.

Baldwin and prosecutors say she conducted a campaign of harassment that escalated from phone calls and emails to showing up at his homes.

She says the two had a sexual relationship. Baldwin denies that, calling her actions "like something out of Hitchcock."
