alec baldwin stalker(CNN) — A Canadian woman was found guilty Thursday of stalking and harassing actor Alec Baldwin.

A judge sentenced Genevieve Sabourin, 41, to 210 days in jail for the five counts, violating a protection order, and a contempt of court ruling issued after her repeated outbursts in court.

The three-day trial in a New Yor City court included tearful testimony from Baldwin, who denied that he had ever had a romantic relationship with Sabourin as she claimed.

The judge also issued a protection order prohibiting the stalker from contacting Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, in any way for five years.

Sabourin is a Canadian actress who met Baldwin in 2002 during a movie production, according to testimony. He was married to actress Kim Basinger at the time, so Sabourin didn’t call the number he slipped to her, she testified.

But nearly a decade later, Baldwin took her to a Broadway play and dinner in Manhattan, she testified. The date ended the next morning, after they had sex in her hotel room and he made romantic promises, Sabourin testified.

“I make the best omelets in the world and I’d be happy to make you omelets every morning for the rest of your life,” she said he said.

But Baldwin testified they were never a romantic couple.

“You’re lying!” Sabourin shouted as Baldwin said that.

Her repeated interruptions during testimony eventually drew a contempt of court ruling, which added 30 days to her sentence.
