Halle Berry

Obsessed Fan Hit with

3-Year Restraining Order

8/1/2011 10:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0801-halle-berry-getty-BN
The man accused of stalking Halle Berry has been ordered by an L.A. judge to stay away from the actress AND her daughter Nahla for 3 years.

The obsessed fan -- Richard A. Franco -- was arrested on July 11 and charged with felony stalking and burglary after allegedly scaling a wall and attempting to enter a guest house at Halle's L.A. home.

If convicted, the judge could extend the restraining order against Franco to as much as 10 years.

Franco has pled not guilty to both charges.

Typo Correction: Rememeber when Halle hit that kid with her SUV and drove away? Karma is a bitch.

One typo changes my whole statement.

So. That won't help. Laws only work on the sane.

Got the facts and missed the story. Halle's attorneys aren't gelling her about GPS with Victim Notification, so Halle would know ahead of time - and in time enough to leave should the guy come around again.

So the question is why aren't these guys telling their clients they could save their own lives?

In a case like this, Halle should have received a gps enabled restraining order. This way, regardless of her location like her residence, a shoot, etc. she could be safer than holding a piece of paper that simply states he has to stay away. A gps enabled restraining order could alarm her if he even get close to her location. It's time to get with technology and save some lives and provide peace of mind to the victims. Learn about it and ask attorneys to request this type of solution: http://www.gpsmonitoring.com/Restraining-Order-services.html

Those things are about as useful as t*ts on a lesbian. I've never seen a restraining order that was capable of stopping a knife or bullet.

I don't get it! That idiot scaled a wall and was caught on the spot and - probably - tried to enter a guest house. Why has he pled not guilty to both charges? I mean, he was caught after scaling the wall so he cannot say he is not guilty of scaling a wall.
Just like that jackass who killed his parents, hid their bodies, threw a party and also says he's not guilty.

What has Halle done ```````` career wise to get all this attention TMZ is giving her? Every other week it's something or another with her.
