PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia man has been convicted of stalking a television anchor after she broke up with him in 2011.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/1GZlRAC ) reports a Philadelphia jury convicted 39-year-old John Hart of Havertown of stalking and harassing Erika von Tiehl of KYW-TV.

Von Tiehl was not in court for Thursday’s verdict, but released a statement expressing relief. She says, “It was important to me to speak up, not only for myself, but also for all of the women he has victimized in the past who didn’t have their day in court.”

Hart has several arrests and convictions for similar crimes.

He’ll be sentenced in January.
