Actress Audrina Patridge's stalker gets two years

Audrinapatridge A transient who admitted stalking actress and television personality Audrina Patridge was sentenced Thursday to two years in prison.

Zachary James Loring, 25, had pleaded guilty to one count of felony stalking in June, but his sentencing had to await an evaluation by state prison officials, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

Authorities charged Loring in February with one count of felony stalking and a misdemeanor charge of disobeying a court order for showing up at Patridge's home after she already had a restraining order against him.

Loring could be released as soon as February because of credit for time served and good behavior, Robison said.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge William Ryan also ordered the 6-feet-4, 160-pound Loring to stay at least 500 yards away from Patridge for the next 10 years.

In 2005, Audrina Patridge was a cast member of “The Hills,” a reality show that followed four women trying to make their mark in Los Angeles. She also appeared in the 2009 film “Sorority Row” and appeared as a recent contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”
