L.A. Jury Acquits Man Accused of Stalking Kendall Jenner

Date:

A Los Angeles jury on Monday acquitted the homeless man accused of stalking Kendall Jenner, but did convict him of trespassing at her Hollywood Hills home.

The jury retruend the verdict against 25-year-old Shavaughn McKenzie after a weeklong trial in which Jenner described him banging on her car window in her driveway. “I’ve never been so scared in my life,” she said in court last week.

Prosecutors alleged McKenzie tracked and stalked the wherabouts of Jenner for more than a year before his arrest in early August. However, McKenzie’s attorney told jurors he is mentally ill and that he only wanted to talk to the reality star turned model.

Jenner told police on the night of the incident that she noticed McKenzie sitting on the curb next to her house while she watched her security gate close to make sure he didn’t slip through. When she thought she was safe, Kendall got out of her car but soon noticed McKenzie was hiding behind her car. She immediately got back in and locked her door as McKenzie began to pound his fists against the car, according to the police report.

Jenner told police officers she was frightened and asked McKenzie to leave, but he refused.

When police arrived, McKenzie, still seated on the curb, told them he was just trying to talk to her.

Despite the acquittal on the stalking charge, Jenner was granted a five-year restraining order that prohibits McKenzie from contacting her or coming within 100 yards of her home, car or place of work.
