Gibson stalker is sentenced to three years

June 23, 2005|From Associated Press

An Idaho drifter convicted of stalking Mel Gibson was sentenced Wednesday to three years in state prison.

Zack Sinclair, 35, who had confronted Gibson after the release of the actor-director's film "The Passion of the Christ," was convicted in March of one felony count of stalking.

Sinclair was arrested in September 2004. Prosecutors said he went to the gate of Gibson's Malibu estate repeatedly that month after evading neighborhood security and asked to pray with the star.

Sinclair declined to speak during the brief sentencing hearing in L.A. Superior Court.
