Man pleads guilty in NYC to harassing Ivanka Trump with deluge of emails ...
Washington Post reported
A self-described celebrity stalker admitted Thursday to harassing Ivanka Trump by barraging her and her husband with bizarre tweets, emails and online videos.
Justin Massler, who for months had been deemed psychologically unfit for trial, pleaded guilty Thursday to aggravated harassment and criminal contempt charges. He was sentenced to six months jail time that he had already served, plus five years of probation, during which he must continue psychiatric treatment and medication.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office said Massler unleashed a slate of emails and tweets about his fixation with the NBC “Celebrity Apprentice” co-host, whose parents are Donald and Ivana Trump.
Massler said his “dream in life” was to marry Ivanka Trump, but at times his remarks turned more ominous, prosecutors said. He threatened to commit suicide in her Manhattan jewelry store and said he wanted to “talk some sense into” her husband, Jared Kushner, and “commandeer” the newspaper that Kushner publishes, The New York Observer, prosecutors said.
