Halle Berry's Alleged Stalker -- Long Criminal Record

7/12/2011 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man arrested at Halle Berry's home for felony stalking has an extensive criminal record, and just got out of jail for criminal battery.


TMZ broke the story ... Richard Franco was apprehended late Monday night after scaling Halle's wall and it was the third time in as many days that he trespassed on her property.

Franco served time for battery last month, but that's just the most recent run-in he had with the law.
His other offenses include:

-- felony car theft
-- felony vandalism
-- several drug use offenses
-- several juvenile offenses

In the most recent criminal case -- the battery -- in addition to serving jail time, Franco was ordered to enroll in anger management classes.

We know LAPD Threat Management -- which handles many serious celebrity stalker cases -- has been deeply involved and law enforcement sources say they have concerns about Franco.

All of you that are complaining need to get a life because this woman has millions. What do you have??????Probably not much, do any of you have stalkers? Doubt it, Most of you can't even get a hand job from a toothless hooker or limp male prostitute So talking crap about Halle makes you feel so good about yourselves.

I think she's making a mistake by getting a restraining order. THIS GUY COULD BE THE ONE. Every other relationship has failed, they all ran away from her. This guy wants to be around her. He's a keeper.

This proverbial pervert will not leave her alone, Lord knows what could happen to Halle or her child! She went to the law, she did what she had to, so if he should bring his a$$ back and cause them any harm, I mean any harm at all, she need to blow his a$$ away! IJS!
