A jury has convicted a man who lurked on Kendall Jenner’s Hollywood property for trespassing.
The seven women and five men on the jury found the accused, Shavaughn McKenzie, guilty of trespassing on the reality TV star’s secluded property and he will now be sentenced in November, E! Online reports.
The jury, however, acquitted McKenzie of the misdemeanor stalking charges leveled against him.
Earlier, the model testified that she had first seen McKenzie sitting near the entrance of her home with his head between his knees.
“I wouldn’t expect someone to be sitting on the side of the street,” she said. “I definitely thought it was weird…It didn’t make sense.”
When she confronted the man and asked him to leave her property, she realized that she had encountered the man twice before at another property she resided at in Westwood.
“I was crying, I was screaming, I was freaking out. I didn’t know what his intentions were. I was freaking out. I was frightened for sure,” she told the jury.
We reported earlier that McKenzie is a transient from Florida and that he could face up to six months in jail once sentenced.
He already has several trespassing convictions unrelated to Jenner to his name, but his lawyer defended him by claiming he has a serious mental disorder.
The lawyer, Taylor Shramo, told jurors that McKenzie was unarmed and merely trying to talk to the model. He is now seeking treatment for his client.
“This is not how I want to be living,” pleaded with jurors during the trial. “I really don’t feel safe in my own house…I’m already the kind of person who’s on edge.”
