NEW YORK (AP) - A Pennsylvania man convicted of stalking “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” actress Kathryn Erbe (UR’-bee) has been sentenced in New York to five years’ probation and ordered to pay $42,000 in restitution.

Charles Nagel was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Brooklyn. Prosecutors say the 36-year-old Philadelphia resident began stalking Erbe in 2008 by trying to hug her while she was filming in Manhattan. Authorities say once he was rebuffed, he began composing creepy missives about her on a social networking site.

The 44-year-old Erbe testified she was scared and thought Nagel was obsessed with her. Nagel said it was a misunderstanding. He described himself as an avid but mild-mannered autograph seeker and “star-struck” fan.

The USA network series featured Erbe as Detective Alexandra Eames for nine seasons.
