Halle Berry Granted Restraining Order in Stalking Case
The man accused of attempting to break into the actress’ home will be required to steer clear for at least three years.
Halle Berry can breathe easier after being granted a three-year restraining order against her alleged stalker.
Richard Franco, 27, was arrested last month on the suspicion of felony stalking after multiple attempts to break into the actress’ Hollywood Hills home. According to E! Online, a Los Angeles judge granted Berry’s request for a restraining order, requiring Franco to maintain a 100-yard distance from both Berry and her 3-year old daughter, Nahla.
Franco is currently being held in custody facing one count of felony stalking and first-degree residential burglary charge. After three failed attempts to enter the actress’ home over a long weekend, Franco was nabbed by Berry’s private security team and handed over to the LAPD on July 10th.
Following the arrest, Berry was initially granted a temporary restraining order.
