San Fernando Valley : Stalker of Michael Jackson Is Placed on Probation

April 18, 1996

Convicted stalker Gabriella Jamilla Jackson, who also uses the aliases Billie Jean Jackson and Lavon Muhammad, was placed on conditional probation and banned from coming within 500 yards of Michael Jackson's homes in Encino and Santa Barbara, as well as his Los Angeles-based company, authorities said Wednesday.

Jackson, 48, was sentenced in Van Nuys to 99 days in jail, which she has already served, after she pleaded no contest to trespassing at the superstar's Encino home in October. Jackson began serving the sentence after she was arrested Jan. 8 at the same home, authorities said.

The case developed from three trespassing violations in October and November of last year, when the woman claimed each time to be Michael Jackson's wife, Deputy City Atty. Ryan Sally King said. The woman has a 10-year history of stalking Jackson and other members of the Jackson family, King said.

The Santa Barbara resident also was ordered not to telephone, follow, threaten, strike or make any physical contact with the singer or his family members, authorities said. A violation of the order would be equivalent to violating probation.
