NEW YORK (AP) — Uma Thurman’s stalker has a chance at getting out of jail while he awaits trial on charges of trying to contact her again.
Jack Jordan’s lawyers said it’s unclear whether he can post the $250,000 cash bail or $500,000 bond a Manhattan judge set Wednesday. Jordan had been held without bail since his latest arrest last month at his family’s home in North Potomac, Md.
The former psychiatric patient was told not to try to contact the Academy Award-winning actress for five years after his 2008 stalking and harassment conviction. But prosecutors say he called her again on Oct. 29 and Oct. 30.
He has pleaded not guilty to charges including stalking and criminal contempt of court. Prosecutors say the 39-year-old told police the calls were drunken mistakes.
