Halle Berry - Halle Berry's Intruder Pleads Not Guilty To Stalking

The man arrested for trespassing on Halle Berry's property three times in three days has pleaded not guilty to felony stalking.

Richard Franco did not speak during his appearance at a Los Angeles court yesterday (13.07.11), with his plea entered by Deputy Public Defender Ken Star, but he has been ordered to stay 500 away from the Oscar-winning actress and her home in the Hollywood Hills for three years.

However, Superior Court Judge Upinder S. Kalra decreed Halle's three-year-old daughter did not require the same protection as she was not a victim in the case.

She is covered by a previous order set by a civil judge where he is not to go within 100 yards of her.

Speaking during the hearing, Ken said the 'X-Men' star was "very shaken and showed signs of stress" when police asked her to identify Richard when he was arrested at her home on Monday night (11.07.11).

Since the first two incidents at the weekend, Halle has hired a team of armed security officers to protect her home, and it was them who alerted her to Richard's appearance on Monday, instructing her to "get to safety as quickly as possible" with her daughter, court filings show.

Currently, Franco is behind bars with bail set at $150,000, and will return to court on July 27 for a preliminary hearing.
