Brooke Shields Stalker: Probation
New Jersey accountant Mark Ronald Bailey, 41, who had been jailed after admitting in court that he stalked Brooke Shields and made terrorist threats against her, cut a plea bargain with prosecutors in Los Angeles yesterday. The court then ordered him to leave California and return to his home state, where he will remain on probation for five years, reports the Associated Press. In exchange for those guilty counts, prosecutors dropped two counts of illegally possessing a firearm. Bailey agreed to accept five years of probation, counseling twice a week and psychological evaluations twice a month. Superior Court Judge Maureen Duffy-Lewis, threatening Bailey with a prison sentence if he strayed, sternly warned him in the courtroom: "You must not harass or molest the victim or threaten use of force or violence against anyone." Shields was not present at the hearing, but the L.A. District Attorney's office said that her legal team was satisfied with Judge Duffy-Lewis's decision.
