An L.A. County Superior Court judge just issued the TRO, ordering Richard Franco to stay clear of Halle, her family and her home.

TMZ broke the story ... Franco jumped the wall of Halle's Hollywood Hills home on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Franco was arrested late Monday night after jumping the back wall of Halle's property.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... on Saturday ... Halle says she was in her garage that was converted into a salon on her property, which is detached from her home.  At some point she decided to go into the house through the kitchen to get a Diet Coke.  According to the Halle's declaration, "As I opened my glass kitchen door and closed it behind me, all of a sudden I sensed someone behind me and turned to see the intruder standing less than a foot behind me, staring through my glass kitchen door."

Halle continues, "Panicking and in fear of my life, I turned my body and quickly hit the deadbolt lock on the glass door.  I grabbed my phone and ran as fast as I could upstairs, slamming each door behind me as I ran."  She then called 911.

Halle says, "He has terrorized me and my family in three consecutive incidents over the last three days," adding, "This person has invaded and trampled upon the most fundamental sense of security I have and I am extremely frightened of him and what he might do to me and those I love."

Halle says when she saw Franco on her property he was carrying a book with "nonsensical ramblings and my name written in his handwriting."

Franco is still in custody.

A full hearing for a permanent restraining order is set for August 1.

Does anyone know how long a person like this would remain in custody? Can Halle Berry breathe free until August 1 or could he possibly be released before that?

Probably publicity - she has no career - too many racist comments. No longer relevant.

well why didn't she tell us the name brand of her kitchen door, the dead bolt lock and the phone she used to dial 9-11 as well, while she's at it...?

you would THINK that someone as rich and famous would have some kind o*****uard dog or protection dog somewhere on the property. Invest in one Halle, could save your life someday! Bet the guy would think twice seeing a hundred pound german shepherd at the bottom of your wall!

Why didn't she create lighting bolts to strike him, or a tornado?
