Man found guilty in stalking case
LOS ANGELES -- A judge says a Florida man is guilty of stalking Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor found Robert O'Ryan guilty of felony stalking and burglary charges on Friday afternoon. The judge also found the 36-year-old was guilty of two misdemeanor concealed weapons violations.
The ruling came after four days of testimony and evidence. Johnson testified Thursday that she was scared of O'Ryan, who traveled from Flordia to Los Angeles to try to meet her at the studio where she was performing on "Dancing with the Stars."
O'Ryan had waived the right to a jury trial and pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
He did not react to Pastor's verdict. Johnson was not present.
