Teen who stalked Duff gets jail time

Empty

TORRANCE, Calif. -- A New York teen was sentenced Friday to 117 days in jail after pleading no contest to stalking Hilary Duff.

A Superior Court judge also ordered 18-year-old Maksim Myaskovskiy to serve five years probation.

Myaskovskiy was arrested in November after police said he made several phone calls from a hotel room to a private security firm employed by the singer-actress.

An investigator with the firm told police Myaskovskiy threatened to harm Duff at an event she was scheduled to attend.

Duff and her family sought a protection order against Myaskovskiy on Oct. 12, alleging he tried to contact her by visiting her neighborhood, the neighborhood of her then-boyfriend -- Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden -- and her mother's home.

Duff is best known for starring in the long-running Disney Channel show "Lizzie McGuire."
