John Cusack’s stalker to stand trial

John Cusack’s rosacea-suffering stalker, Emily Leatherman, 33, will be tried on several counts that include felony stalking, violating a restraining order and petty theft. Leatherman was arrested outside of Cusack’s house on March 30 after she took a cab hoping to find the object of her delusions. She didn’t have enough money to pay the fare, and Cusack recognized her as the woman that’s been stalking him for over a year and called police.

She was held on $150,000 bail at the time, and since the woman didn’t have enough money to pay for a taxi I think it’s safe to assume she’s been in jail since.

In a restraining order filed last year, Cusack says Leatherman threw a bag containing rocks, screwdrivers and love letters over his fence.

Yesterday a judge ruled that Leatherman would stand trial for her crimes, and she could get up to four years in jail if she’s found guilty.

Since Leatherman is accused of petty theft, I wonder what she stole and if she got access to any of Cusack’s stuff. Given her very crude M.O., she probably just took some of Cusack’s mail and/or garbage.

The LA Times report on this story included pretty specific information on where Cusack lives, saying that police were called to “the 24000 block of Malibu Road.” While it’s possible that more Cusack stalkers will emerge like crazed gophers on his lawn, it’s more likely that 30-something women like me will just slow down when they’re driving down his street, choosing to take detours on their way home from dropping the kids off at school.

    … or standing out front with a boom-box held over your head?

    because I’d do that for John Cusack.

    petty theft = taxi ride she never paid for. the rest was a bonus

    Thanks Utopian, that didn’t occur to me!

    It’s odd that she could get three years for this, while a certain Lohan girl can drive circles around someone on the highway while drunk, in a stolen car, with people in it that do not want to be there, and she gets off.

    Just in case John Cusack needs a new stalker to make his life complete, I would like to be the first to apply. I’ve even got enough money to pay the cab! And I would stand IN THE RAIN with the boom box over my head.
