Ashanti Douglas

A Manhattan jury convicted an obsessed fan of stalking R&B singer Ashanti Douglas on Friday.

Devar Hurd, 37, was convicted of felony stalking and harassing the 35-year-old singer. He was convicted in 2009 of the lesser charge of stalking.

The jury of five women and seven men returned their verdict after one full day of deliberations. Two previous juries failed to convict Hurd.

NY Daily News -- Hurd faces up to four years behind bars but has been in jail since 2013 in connection to the current case, so he could be released soon given the time he has served. He will be sentenced on March 31.

This is the third attempt to convict him on the top count in his current indictment. His first trial in 2014 resulted in a mistrial because a juror got sick during deliberations. In October, he was convicted on several counts including criminal contempt but the jury could not reach a consensus on the top count.

Hurd, who has delusions that he actually had a relationship with the sexy singer, was convicted in 2009 of stalking and harassing.

    Awesome! I hope Ashanti can get on with her life now!

  • SouljaSociety

    Why would the court even allow this man to harrass her while in court? That's crazy, he shouldn't even be able to see her.

    Glad this psycho is in prison.

    Another reason why I can't/wouldn't be famous...

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Mental illness is real. Glad Ashanti finally has peace. Hope he doesn't get out early because of time served. She's real patient though because the justice system was literally playing with her life. Juror got sick so he was free to continue to violate her space. I understand why, but he could have done way more than psychological damage to her and she would more than likely be at fault. Laws need to change and catch up with the times.

  • Hmmm~?

    Shequoiya tho...?

  • Brownie

    You're over here telling the truth. Just recently they sent me an email with the braids. Yeah it's something we can wear but do they get pics of us??? Look at this foolery. I had to dig in the trash. lol What's the deal with the "Guys?" I'll assume the "Faces" is because I have some kind of smile board? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d1ca3753d30bee4ccf365c79097e9d95e751b1e19724dfd4eeb074d9f76152e9.jpg

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    What's wrong with her middle name? When people from other countries have names that take up a whole sheet of paper and have more vowles than the alphabet, no one bats an eye . I see what your tired ass trying to do not today. STFU!
