Alec Baldwin - Alec Baldwin Stalker's Lawyer Still Believes His Client's Romance Claims

The lawyer who represented Alec Baldwin's convicted stalker Genevieve Sabourin in court insists he would never have taken on actress' case if he thought she was lying about her romantic ties to the star.

Canadian Sabourin was convicted on five counts of harassment and stalking on Thursday (14Nov13), after bombarding the 55-year-old actor with emails and voicemails and making unwelcome visits to his New York homes after enjoying a meal with him in 2010.

She was sentenced to 210 days in jail, including time she must spend behind bars for contempt of court following a series of outbursts during testimonies from Baldwin and his wife Hilaria.

During the four-day trial, the actor denied Sabourin's claims that they had been engaged in a sexual relationship, but her lawyer Todd Spodek is still convinced his client was telling the truth.

He tells news show Entertainment Tonight, "I have no doubts that they had a relationship and it progressed to a sexual stage. I actually believe that they had phone sex after that."

Spodek also dismissed claims his client had a "fatal attraction" towards Baldwin, adding, "Ms. Sabourin thought that this was going to be her boyfriend (sic) and potential husband. Mr. Baldwin, I believe, thought this was going to be a one-night-stand and move on."

The lawyer also laughs off reports suggesting Sabourin is a danger to herself following her conviction: "She is not suicidal at all... She has been in jail overnight and it's a stark reality check."
