Man Acquitted of Stalking Grammy Winner Sheryl Crow

DECEMBER 1, 2004 - Posted at 8:49 a.m. CST

 

NEW YORK, NY - A New York jury has sided with a love-struck fan of singer Sheryl Crow.

Ambrose Kappos was found innocent of burglary and stalking charges.  Kappos had faced up to seven years in prison if convicted.

Outside court, Kappos said be believes he was "delusional" when he thought he was communicating telepathically with Crow, a Region 8 native of Kennett, Missouri.

Kappos was accused of pursuing Crow from July 2002 until his October 2003 arrest at a concert hall in New York City where the singer was appearing.  His pursuit included visits to her sister in Tennessee and to her father in the Missouri Bootheel.

During the trial, the defense pointed out Kappos was always polite and never threatened anyone.

Crow testified, however, that Kappos "creeped" her out.
