There’s a new development in the case between Ashanti and her relentless stalker, Devar Hurd. The 37-year-old was sentenced to 16 months to four years in prison after being found guilty on second degree stalking, TMZ reports.
Recently, the R&B songstress and Hurd appeared in court for a third cross-examination where Hurd reportedly aimed a few lewd comments at the “Don’t Let Them” singer.
During the proceeding, Ashanti stated to Hurd, “You continuously tweeted over and over again disgusting, derogatory, disgusting things to me after you had already gone to jail for doing the same thing.” Hurd later retorted, “Why didn’t you tell me to stop or block me?”
In 2009, Hurd was arrested for stalking the Long Island native, and prisoned for 32 months after he violated a restraining order.
Upon Hurd’s release, he will be prohibited from contacting Ashanti and her family for the next five years.
