Ryan Seacrest stalker sentenced to two years in prison

http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/ryanseacrest_americanidol_290.jpgA man who was charged with stalking "American Idol" star Ryan Seacrest was sentenced to two years in prison by an L.A. Superior Court judge.

Chidi Benjamin Uzomah Jr. was accused of a felony and two misdemeanors. He faced up to four years in state prison.

Uzomah, 25, was arrested last year at the E! building on the 5700 block of Wilshire Boulevard, where Seacrest tapes a daily TV show. 

Uzomah already pleaded guilty in September to attacking Seacrest’s security guard outside an Orange County hospital and was ordered to stay away from the radio and TV host.

Authorities said Uzomah appeared Oct. 2 at radio station KIIS-FM (102.7) in Burbank, looking for Seacrest.

This guy is on probation in Orange County for the same thing. He should have received more time for the probation violation. Two years too little.
