A Manhattan judge has sentenced a former mental patient to three years of probation for stalking and harassing actress Uma Thurman.

Jack Jordan of Gaithersburg, Md., will serve the probation in his home state, with the condition that he receive outpatient psychiatric treatment. The prosecutor had sought a year in jail.

State Supreme Court Justice Gregory Carro also imposed a five-year order of protection. If Jordan violates any of the court’s terms, the judge says he’ll be jailed.

An out-of-work lifeguard and pool cleaner, Jordan was convicted on May 6. Testimony showed he subjected the “Pulp Fiction” star with a barrage of frightening advances.

He apologized in court on Monday. Thurman and her family were not present.
