A man who followed and harassed model-turned-TV star Tyra Banks has been convicted of stalking her by a judge in Manhattan.
Judge James Burke stated Brady Green, 39, had been "hounding" the co-presenter of 'America's Next Top Model'.
However, Judge Burke said he would not send Green to jail, but told defence lawyer Jeffrey Berman to help his client in finding psychiatric counselling.
Mr Berman said he was disappointed with the verdict and was planning an appeal. His client had faced up to 90 days in jail.
Green, of Dublin, Georgia, was arrested in March and accused of repeatedly calling Banks at her TV studio, sending her flowers and threatening her assistant.
The 'America's Next Top Model' presenter had been frightened, telling the judge that she "didn't know what to do."
Banks continued: "How do I live my life when I leave this building? I had never experienced anything like this before."
