Halle Berry on Her Stalker Scare

Actress Halle Berry was granted a restraining order against stalker Richard Franco on Tuesday, saying she was "extremely frightened."


In court documents obtained by "Extra," Berry described how she saw Franco through her glass kitchen door -- less than a foot from her! It was the third time since Saturday that the 27-year-old man had trespassed on her property.

The order remains in effect until August 1 and also protects Berry's 3-year-old daughter, Nahla.

Meanwhile, Franco, who remains in jail, has been formally charged with felony stalking and is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.

The 27-year-old faces up to three years in prison if convicted of stalking. Jail records do not indicate if he has an attorney. He is being held on $150,000 bail.
