Thurman On Stalker Case: 'I Wasn't Being Courageous'
Jack Jordan, 37, was ordered to keep his distance from the Hollywood star for five years after he was found guilty of fourth-degree stalking and one count of second degree aggravated harassment by a jury in May (08).
During the week-long dramatic trial at New York's Manhattan Supreme Court, Thurman and her parents testified, revealing how Jordan had bombarded them with notes and letters, and threatened to kill himself following his 2005 outside Thurman's New York home.
And though Thurman is now reluctant to "give any more energy to that (the trial)," she insists she has no misgivings about pursuing the marathon of court proceedings.
She adds: "If anyone is forced to call 911 and as a result, something becomes a police matter, you can't abandon the process: You need to cooperate and allow the police to do what they need to do. I wasn't being courageous. It was a situation I needed to see through in order to protect my family."
