A California man pleaded guilty to defiant trespass and stalking in Chester County (Pa.) Court in connection with his unsuccessful attempts to make contact with QVC Inc. host Lisa Robertson, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Wednesday.
Brandon Song, 40, of Redwood City, will spend 25 days to 12 months in prison, followed by three years’ probation, under terms of a plea bargain approved by President Judge Howard F. Riley Jr., the Inquirer said.
In addition, Song was ordered to receive a mental-health evaluation and to undergo any recommended treatment.
According to testimony at his preliminary hearing, Song saw Robertson pitch various products on QVC, and he responded by ordering 31 of those items for her, the newspaper said.
Robertson sent the packages back, but Song continued to direct purchases to her for more than one year.
Then QVC security official Jeffrey Buss sent Song a certified letter after Song showed up at the network's West Goshen, Pa., headquarters on Christmas Eve 2002, asking to meet with Robertson, the Inquirer said.
Buss said the letter informed Song that he would be arrested for trespassing if he showed up again, which he did Oct. 24. He was in custody until Tuesday.
Because Song had already served 25 days in Chester County Prison, he was released and sent to a crisis residential facility, where he will be monitored until returning to California, the newspaper added.
