Thurman stalker seeks plea deal in new NYC case
NEW YORK -- Uma Thurman's convicted stalker is trying to work out a plea deal after a Manhattan court refused to toss out or pare down charges that he flouted a court order by trying to contact her again.
A judge said Wednesday there was enough evidence to support the new contempt, stalking and other charges against Jack Jordan.
Jordan's lawyer and prosecutors say they're discussing the possibility of a plea deal but haven't reached any agreement.
Jordan was convicted in 2008 of stalking and harassing the "Pulp Fiction" actress. He was sentenced to three years' probation and told not to try to contact her for five years.
Prosecutors say he called some of Thurman's phone lines and demanded to speak to her twice in October.
Jordan's lawyer says the charges are excessive.
