NYC woman gets probation for stalking actress

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City woman has been sentenced to probation for stalking actress Marion Cotillard (koh-tee-YAR') on the Internet.

Teresa Yuan was sentenced Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court. She pleaded guilty last fall.

Prosecutors said Yuan sent 504 emails and 120 webcam videos of herself to a Cotillard fan website in 2011.

The 32-year-old Yuan is being treated for bipolar disorder. The Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/10PDevQ ) that Judge William Kuntz warned her to stay on her medications.

In addition, the judge said she is allowed to use only one device with access to the Internet for easier monitoring by authorities.

In videos shown in court Yuan appears to be topless, hisses like a cat and discusses playing Russian roulette.

Yuan says she never meant to scare anybody.
