Halle Berry's accused stalker pleaded no contest before a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge on Thursday, and will not serve any additional jail time.

28-year-old Richard Anthony Franco of Commerce was sentenced to 386 days in county jail, five years of probation, and one year of psychological counseling. A 10-year criminal protective order was also imposed.

For the 193 days he was in custody, Franco received credit for the entirety of his country jail sentence, announced the District Attorney’s office.

According to LAPD, Franco was arrested when Berry reported the presence of a possible burglar after he'd allegedly shown up her at her Hollywood Hills home several times. 

Under the terms of a negotiated settlement, one count of first-degree residential burglary was dismissed at the sentencing.
