Just because you were arrested TWICE outside of Madonna's home, and are
clearly allegedly a creepy stalker, doesn't mean that you have to take a plea deal.
That's exactly what Madonna's stalker just did — and it was a deal that involved just a year in prison.
His lawyer, Kevin Kitson, said this:
"The New York City Police Department in this case was a servant of the private security of Madonna doing a celebrity's bidding. If you have enough money and power, the rules are different."
Robert Linhart is a 61-year-old retired New York fire fighter, and had a knife in a bag and an ice-pick in his truck, and was also found with signs professing his love for Madonna.
He actually believed he had a right to be outside her home, where he had written notes on the pavement including "meet me please" and "tell me yes or no" and said:
"I can be here. This is police brutality. I have a right to do this. I am not doing anything wrong."
Obviously there's something wrong with this guy if he thinks doing any of that is decent, regardless of it being legal or not.
Because he turned down he deal, there's a good chance it'll go to trial.
We'll keep U posted!
