Alec Baldwin’s accused stalker, Genevieve Sabourin, burst into tears Wednesday after the judge sentenced her to 30 days in jail for repeated outbursts during her hearing.

“I would never hurt anyone in my entire life. I don’t know what’s happening to me,” Ms. Sabourin said, My Fox New York reported.

Alec Baldwin has accused the small-time Canadian actress of stalking him. Ms. Sabourin interrupted the court numerous times with accusations like, “He’s lying!”

“Genevieve stop talking,” her lawyer instructed her, ABC News reported.

After repeated outbursts, the fed-up judge held her in contempt.

“You have been treated in this courtroom with respect,” Judge Robert Mandelbaum said in the report. “Like every other person in this courthouse, you are not permitted to scream out loud.”

Ms. Sabourin was scheduled to take the stand Wednesday, one day after Mr. Baldwin compared her behavior to something “out of a Hitchcock movie,” ABC News reported.

Mr. Baldwin’s doorman David Paduani took the stand on Wednesday to support the actor’s claims that Ms. Sabourin stalked both him and his wife.
