Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – The man accused of stalking Kendall Jenner and the reason behind the model fearing for her life will be walking as a free man in no time after his sentence was ruled to have been served due to the time he has been in custody pending trial.
The 25-year-old man, Shavaughn McKenzie, was sentenced to 178 days in jail for misdemeanor trespassing at the Hollywood Hill property of the 20-year-old model. However, the sentence was offset due to the time he has served. McKenzie reportedly served 89 days behind bars and 89 more days were added due to the standard “good-time, work-time” credit.” This then means he has completed his sentence.
McKenzie remained in custody since his August 14 arrest. Jenner said that McKenzie has been following her for a number of years during her testimony in court on October 13. Jenner also testified that she first asked the man to leave nicely but scolded at him do leave after the first tactic did not work. She added, “I was crying, I was screaming, I was freaking out. I didn’t know what his intentions were … I was frightened for sure.”
Jurors deliberated for less than two hours. McKenzie was convicted of trespassing but acquitted of stalking Jenner . The decision was made despite Deputy City Attorney Alex T. Perez telling jurors that McKenzie purposefully went to California to figure out the location of the reality star.
The prosecutor also argued that McKenzie made remarkable progress toward his goal of meeting the model despite the defense team’s argument that he is mentally disturbed. The attorney for McKenzie also argued that his client did not have any malicious intent. The lawyer added, “He certainly never intended to place her in fear. He thought that they could be friends.”
Deputy Public Defender Taylor J. Shramo said McKenzie’s mother already has plane tickets and plans to take her son back to the East Coast as soon as he is released.
