Good news for Ashanti!!
As we told you yesterday, the singer faced her stalker of over a decade in court this week — and now, the verdict is in!
Devar Hurd — who represented himself in court — was found guilty by an NYC jury and will face more time in jail. Whew!
In case you didn’t know, Hurd has been stalking the singer’s family for years and confessed to sending her hundreds of lewd tweets and text messages. He defended himself by saying Ashanti simply could’ve “blocked” him on social media.
Hurd was ultimately found guilty of felony second degree stalking and will face anywhere between one and a half to four years behind bars.
The Foolish singer took to Twitter to announce her relief of the sentencing:
