Man found guilty of trespassing at Kendall Jenner’s Hollywood Hills home, but is acquitted of stalking
A 25-year-old man was found guilty Monday of trespassing at the Hollywood Hills home of model Kendall Jenner.
But jurors in the downtown Los Angeles courtroom acquitted Shavaughn McKenzie of a misdemeanor stalking charge, according to a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Los Angeles police arrested McKenzie on Aug. 15 at Jenner’s home in the 1600 block of Marmont Avenue, according to jail records.
Jenner had pulled into her driveway that evening and spotted McKenzie, who tried to talk to her, the Associated Press reported at the time.
Jenner, 20, called police and McKenzie was later taken into custody on suspicion of stalking.
Defense attorney Taylor Shramo told jurors Monday in his closing argument that McKenzie did not want to scare Jenner when he showed up at her gated home.
The lawyer argued that McKenzie just wanted to speak to Jenner.
Jenner — the daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner and the younger sister of Kim Kardashian West — testified during the trial that she recognized McKenzie from two previous confrontations in Westwood.
“I’ve never been so scared in my life,” she said.
McKenzie faces up to six months in jail for the misdemeanor trespassing charge.
