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.

As usual people FREAKING OUT because of the "stalkers" oh those horrible, terrible stalkers. What a joke, maybe the dude just wanted to meet her. People are SO paranoid and the cops and courts feed off the paranoia, lapping it up and slamming ppl who otherwise are either in love, mentally ill, or just want to meet ppl. Sad we cannot be more tolerant and less AFRAID.

She needs to get a gun and write "Franco" on it and next time he shows up, she can flash that gun, show him the name and point to him and tell him if he doesn't leave her the eff alone, she's going to unload one up his rectum.
