Uma Thurman's stalker has been found guilty of harassing the actress.
Jack Jordan, 37, showed no emotion as a New York City court convicted the former psychiatric patient of fourth-degree stalking and second degree aggravated harassment yesterday (06.05.08).
After his ruling Supreme Court Justice Gregory Carro said: "I've learned some disturbing things about this defendant during this case. I am going to remand him for a psychiatric exam."
Jordan, an out-of-work lifeguard, will next appear in court on June 2.
Uma had no comment on the verdict, her spokesperson revealed.
Jordan - who had been accused of stalking the 'Kill Bill' star from January 2005 to the summer of 2007 - now faces up to 90 days in jail for stalking plus a further year for aggravated harassment.
Last week, Uma told the Manhattan State Supreme Court she was "completely freaked out" by Jordan and said his alleged harassment of her had been a "nightmare".
She recounted one incident where Jordan had delivered her a card showing a picture of an open grave and a man standing on a razor blade, bearing the message, "My hands should be on your body at all times".
Uma said: "I was completely freaked out. It was like a nightmare. It was scary."
The 38-year-old actress also told the court about an email Jordan had sent her insisting her two children - nine-year-old Maya and six-year-old Levon Roan - do not exist, and referring to them as "an illusion".
She added: "I don't think any mother or parent would want a stranger to fixate on their children, and fixate on them not existing. That was terrifying to me."
