0211-gwyneth-paltrow-worried-TMZ-01Gwyneth Paltrow's alleged stalker has been found NOT GUILTY ... a stunning development given the fact that Gwyneth told the jury the guy scared her to death.

Jurors not only found Dante Soiu not guilty on all charges, there was no recommendation that he be hospitalized for psychiatric treatment. 

Paltrow testified that Soiu threatened to use a scalpel "to cut out sin" in her body. She also said she was so afraid, she got an attack dog to protect her and her family.

Cops say Soiu sent Gwyneth lots of porn and 66 letters over the years ... as well as leaving presents at her parents' home, flowers, candy and love notes.

Back in 2000, a judge sent Soiu to a psych hospital because of his obsession with the actress.
