Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson’s Stalker Convicted

Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson’s Stalker Convicted

In a Los Angeles Superior Court, Robert Michael O'Ryan was charged with one felony count each of stalking and commercial burglary, along with two misdemeanor counts of carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle.  O'Ryan had driven from Florida to Los Angeles while Shawn Johnson was on Dancing with the Stars in hopes of being able to meet and marry the Olympic gold medal winner.  He was arrested when he tried to jump over a fence at CBS Studios and authorities found a loaded shotgun, knife, and sharpening stone in the suspect's vehicle, along with a wooden club, duct tape, 22 zip ties, a bulletproof vest and love letters to Shawn Johnson.

Judge Pastor found O'Ryan guilty on all counts, however, after considering the evaluations of two psychiatrists, he ruled that O'Ryan was legally insane at the time of his arrest last March.  If found sane, O'Ryan faced up to six years in prison, a sentence he will likely serve in a state mental hospital.
