A Georgia man who told police he and the TV personality ”had a thing together” was convicted Thursday of stalking her.
Brady Green, of Dublin, Ga., was convicted by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge James Burke, who heard the case without a jury, of stalking, harassment, criminal trespass and attempted aggravated harassment.
Green, 39, faces as many as 90 days in jail when he is sentenced on June 18. His lawyer said an appeal is planned. Authorities said Green repeatedly called Banks’ downtown New York studio, showed up there, and sent her flowers and letters.
Banks testified that she is now followed everywhere by security guards, even when she runs and exercises outdoors. Even though she is a public person, ”I don’t live that kind of sheltered, protected life,” she said. “I like to walk around.”
