Sky News reports that a Los Angeles jury has acquitted 67-year-old Ohio resident Dante Soiu of stalking actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The verdict was announced today and cleared Soiu of both felony stalking as well as a lesser charge of attempted stalking.
Paltrow appeared in court last week to testify against Soiu. The Oscar-winning actress expressed fear for her children’s safety and read some of the 48 letters sent to her by the defendant.
Soiu stood trial for stalking Paltrow in 2000 – behavior which included showing up twice outside of her parents’ home – and spent several years in a psychiatric facility.
